This solar PV System at the Pier South - A Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel & Resort located in Imperial Beach, CA - at the beach front, demonstrates that designing with PV Glass has almost no limits.

Modern in every sense, the Pier South stands out for being a sustainable and environmentally friendly building awarded LEED Silver Certification (Leader in Energy and Environmental Design), thanks to the innovative solutions brought by Onyx Solar® through Soorya Unlimited, a Californian company specializing in solar energy and project development.

Soorya Unlimited proposed a solution that included photovoltaic technology in the hotel, for which Onyx Solar® is a safe bet in the design of such photovoltaic construction solutions.

The objective of creating a fully customizable solution in the form of a photovoltaic roof, which requires greater aesthetic appearance, was achieved through the design of customshaped glass modules with more than 55 different shapes, fully frameless.

The PV Glass, designed and manufactured by Onyx Solar®, is composed of crystalline silicon solar cells, reaching an installed capacity of 38 kWp. This solution enables the Pier South to generate 58,500 kWh annually, destined for the building’s self-consumption, thereby preventing the emission of 39 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

Data:

  • superficieTotal area - 283 M2
  • electricidad generadaElectricity generated per year - 58.494 kWh
  • puntos de luzTotal light points operating 4 hours a day - 3.335 lighting points
  • emisiones CO2 evitadasAvoided CO2 emissions per year - 39.184 CO2
  • barriles petroleo ahorradosBarrels of oil saved per year - 35 barrels

The installation by Soorya Unlimited is flat on the roof and ballasted so no penetrations are done in roof. Additionally, some string lights under the entire array will be installed to enhance the aesthetics further -when lit at the night, they will make the whole roof look like a dance floor. This luxury complex has 78 modern guest rooms with private balconies overlooking spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. For sure, it is a place where sustainability and relaxation meet.
