Pvilion’s Portable Lightweight Solar Sail is a uniquely designed shelter featuring photovoltaic fabric. The lightweight solar fabric roof allows for the structure to be easily relocatable to anywhere that shelter and power are needed. Be it outdoor dining, farmers markets, or any other outdoor event, this shelter structure is designed to offer flexibility and independence to users in any setting. This turnkey product includes the solar fabric canopy as well as a complete battery system and offers outlets for device charging, lighting, powering equipment, and any other needs. It can operate independently from the grid anywhere that receives sunlight.



This product also helps replace the need for diesel generators. The clean battery kits and solar power can be used in place of generators, which are known for their harmful exhaust. With the addition of these kits, event venues can drastically reduce exhaust that would otherwise be emitted by using diesel generators. Additionally, the battery kits are silent, unlike the loud rumblings of traditional generators.



The fabric used for the canopies is integrated with Pvilion’s specialty solar technology that is lightweight, flexible, and easily transformed into unique and beautiful designs. The canopies are also waterproof, fire-retardant, UV-resistant, and built to withstand extreme weather conditions.



All in all, this design offers sustainable durability, flexibility, energy generation, and visual appeal for all who use it.
