Our solar trees are digging roots in local communities throughout Florida. These artistic, clean energy structures seamlessly integrate into the landscape to create a unique space for connecting and learning about solar energy. And, depending on their location, the trees provide additional seating and serve as a convenient charging station.

Each solar tree and canopy will be branded with a unique identifier. Using our TEXT-back program, visitors to SolarNow installations will have the opportunity to give input on other potential solar tree and canopy locations.
