SunModo, Corp., a leading solar PV racking and mounting solutions provider, has teamed with IdeaBox, a prefab housing design studio, on a customized solar power system for the NorthWest Modern Solar House, on display at the IKEA Portland parking lot. The solar installation is projected to offset over 98.7% percent of the house’s non-heating/cooling energy consumption.

During the design process, SunModo was approached by IdeaBox to help design an off-grid solar system to power the NW Modern House. Collaborating with various suppliers, SunModo was able to provide IdeaBox a solar PV system with SunModo’s ground mount custom racking solution to meet the parameters for the project. “SunModo is proud to have played a significant role in making this important demonstration project a success for IdeaBox,” says Cliff Schrock, SunModo’s VP of Engineering and Operations. “We are confident that IdeaBox will continue to be a key partner for SunModo in the future.”

The SunModo’s ground mount solution, specifically engineered for the NorthWest solar house project, showcased the versatility and usability of SunModo racking systems while optimizing the total installed cost for IdeaBox. Mike Foote, managing member of IdeaBox, expressed high satisfaction with SunModo on their ability to deliver a first-class solution. “We are extremely pleased to partner with SunModo on this project and excited about the opportunity to provide solar powered prefab houses to socially-conscious home buyers.” IKEA provided interior design for the NorthWest Modern 400 sq. ft. house and arranged to have the unit on display through August at the parking lot just west of IKEA Portland store.

SunModo’s full line of innovative PV mounting solutions, including the Ground Mount Systems used in this installation will be on display at the new facility during our open house event on August 3rd. Most of our products will also be on display in booth 739 at the Solar Power International (SPI) trade show to be held September10-13 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
