Solar Ready Pergola Kits

Our Big Kahuna Solar pergola kits are designed like our standard Big Kahuna pergola kits to withstand high winds and elements, but engineered to accommodate solar panel mounting. The Big Kahuna Solar Ready Pergola can be used to mount panels for a variety of solar projects. Configure your install to provide power for outdoor living environments, carport with power for charging, for backup power, or many other uses. Florida stamped engineered drawings are available for standard size freestanding or attached pergolas (standard sizes 8×8-20×20). Engineered drawings that may be required for non-standard sizes are customer’s responsibility and may incur additional costs. Configure your solar pergola kit to be freestanding or attached to your home or other building. Offered in standard sizes ranging from 8×8 up to 20×20. Custom sizes available upon request. Standard sizes ship within 10-15 business days. Custom sizes may require additional processing and shipping time. Like all of our pergola kits, all lumber is pre-cut, pre-drilled and marked for easy assembly. Follow the step-by-step instructions for DIY installation.
