About Barrett Propane Prescott

Welcome to Barrett Propane Prescott, a leading provider in eCommerce & Shopping - Appliances & electronics. We are dedicated to sustainable solutions, and our latest project involves the implementation of solar panels to shade parking lots at Naranja Park in Oro Valley.

The Need for Shade

Oro Valley Park attracts thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy its various recreational activities. However, the parking lots often lack sufficient shade, making it uncomfortable for park-goers during hot summer months. Recognizing this issue, Barrett Propane Prescott has taken the initiative to address the problem and enhance the visitor experience.

Solar Panels: A Shading Solution

Our team has collaborated with renowned solar panel manufacturers to design and install solar panels that serve a dual purpose: generating clean energy and providing shade in the parking lots of Naranja Park. These panels are strategically placed to cover a significant portion of the parking area, ensuring visitors can park their vehicles without being exposed to direct sunlight.

Benefits of Solar-Powered Shade

1. Sustainable Energy Source

By using solar panels as shading structures, Barrett Propane Prescott is embracing sustainable energy practices. The solar panels harness the power of the sun to generate electricity, reducing our dependency on non-renewable energy sources and minimizing our carbon footprint. This project aligns perfectly with our commitment to a greener future.

2. Improved Visitor Comfort

The shaded parking lots offer visitors a more pleasant experience, as they can park their vehicles under the protection of the solar panels. This significantly reduces the risk of overheating inside parked cars and prevents discomfort caused by intense sunlight. Whether visitors are coming to enjoy the park's trails, sports facilities, or events, they can now arrive and leave with peace of mind.

3. Protection for Vehicles

In addition to providing shade for visitors, the solar panels also help protect vehicles from prolonged sun exposure. Extended exposure to direct sunlight can cause interior damage, including fading of upholstery and overheating of sensitive components. With the solar-powered shade, visitors can keep their vehicles cooler, ensuring a longer lifespan for their possessions.

4. Education and Awareness

We believe in promoting sustainable practices and educating the community about the benefits of renewable energy. Our solar panel installation at Naranja Park serves as an educational tool, showcasing the effectiveness of solar power in a visible and practical way. By raising awareness, we hope to inspire others to adopt similar green initiatives.

5. Cost Savings

Barrett Propane Prescott's solar panels at Oro Valley Park not only benefit the environment but also yield long-term cost savings. As the solar panels generate electricity, the excess energy can be fed back into the local power grid, potentially offsetting the park's energy costs. Furthermore, the shaded parking lots reduce the need for additional cooling systems, saving on energy consumption and expenses.


At Barrett Propane Prescott, we are proud to contribute to the improvement of Oro Valley Park by implementing solar panels to shade parking lots at Naranja Park. Our commitment to sustainability, visitor comfort, vehicle protection, education, and cost savings drives us to create innovative solutions that benefit both our community and the environment.
