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.
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. 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. 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.
This kit includes all materials required to assemble your solar pergola, but does not include solar panels, racks, or other solar related equipment.
