SunPower Solar System on World’s First ‘Destination Porsche’ Prototype Dealership Designed and Installed by Renova Energy

The new Porsche Palm Springs building is the first of its kind in the world, featuring Porsche AG’s new prototype design, Destination Porsche.

Palm Desert, CA – After a review of several companies and products, the indiGO Auto Group selected Renova Energy to install a SunPower Helix Dual Tilt solar system on their new two-story, 44,500 sq. ft. Porsche dealership. The new Porsche Palm Springs building is the first of its kind in the world, featuring Porsche AG’s new prototype design, Destination Porsche.

“After comparing all proposals and designs, we found that Renova Energy offered the best fit for our company,” said Todd Blue, Founder and CEO of indigo Auto Group, owner of Porsche Palm Springs. “Combining the area’s most experienced and trusted installer with the world’s best panel proved to be the right solution. We’re thrilled to work with the premier local solar company, Renova Energy, and excited to be incorporating clean, renewable energy into our dealership of the future.”

The rooftop solar system made of 576 SunPower 360-watt panels will serve as an important demonstration of Porsche’s prototype for future locations. Porsche Palm Springs is located on a 2.7 acre lot on Highway 111 at 3737 East Palm Canyon Drive. The LEED-certified building is thoughtfully designed to retail and service the new Taycan, Porsche’s first all-electric vehicle scheduled to be released in 2020. Powered with solar energy, the new facility has fast charging portals where future Taycan owners can charge 62 miles of range in just four minutes.

“We’ve developed a solar system that we anticipate will address much of Porsche Palm Springs’ energy needs, as well as help power their electric car chargers,” said Renova Vice President of Sales and Marketing Nate Lewis. “ Reducing one of the company’s largest overhead expenditures is extremely satisfying.”

“SunPower and its installing partners work with U.S. auto dealers across the country to help them drastically lower utility bills – which can be one of their highest operating expenses – and offset electricity use with clean, cost-effective solar energy,” said Nam Nguyen, SunPower Executive Vice President. “We commend the Porsche Palm Springs team for going above and beyond in their quest for sustainability by building a state-of-the-art, LEED certified auto dealership powered by a SunPower solar system.”
