Lumos Solar Frameless Modules Used in Oregon Walmart Installation

Lumos Solar, a Boulder, Colorado, based design-centric solar product company, is proud to announce today that the company’s LSX frameless modules were used to create a custom solar canopy for Walmart in Portland, Oregon. The system is a part of Walmart’s Renewable Energy Commitment, adding to their ultimate goal of achieving 100% renewable energy.

Walmart Chooses LumosUsed to shade and protect bicycles, the Portland Walmart solar canopy was a collaborative effort of Lumos, Duo-Gard, and Synchro Solar. Duo-Gard, a leading innovator in high-performance custom structures, designed, fabricated and installed the canopy structure. To highlight Walmart’s renewable energy efforts, Synchro Solar was brought in to install solar on the structure. To meet the architectural requirements of the project, Duo-Gard and Synchro Solar reached out to Lumos for their LSX Frameless Module system.

Because LSX is a frameless module, the array easily met the aesthetic requirements of Portland’s Walmart. In addition, LSX arrays can be easily weatherproofed keeping guests and their bicycles dry when unexpected weather decides to descend on the area.

“Walmart’s use of LSX in this structure demonstrates their commitment to providing a positive experience for their guests while achieving their renewable energy goals at the same time. Walmart’s commitment to renewable energy is impressive and something we should all strive for,” says Lumos CEO/President, Scott Franklin.

Walmart installed its first U.S. on-site solar project in 2005. Since then, it has added more than  335 renewable energy projects across its global portfolio. Today, when combined with renewable electricity from the grid, 24.2% of Walmart’s electricity needs on a global scale are supplied from renewable sources.
