1.725 kW Outdoor Solar Classroom at Haskell Indian Nations University

Lawrence Solar Project Details

Haskell Indian Nations University Outdoor Classroom
Haskell Indian Nations University needed a structure that would allow students to attend classes in an outdoor setting on campus. We worked with them to build this pergola, including all of the lighting and electrical components, that provides off-grid solar power to students and faculty.


Haskell Outdoor Classroom BatteriesThe solar system consists of 5 solar modules, 1 Sol-Ark inverter and 4 Kilovault batteries. This equipment allows students and faculty to use their plugged-in electronic equipment (laptops, tablets, and phones, etc.) along with providing power to light the space. 

  • The Sol-Ark inverter receives the power that is produced by the solar modules and is used to charge the batteries and power the loads
  • The main battery disconnect will disconnect the battery power source and shut down the system if required – this is the main means of safety disconnect
  • The electrical loads panel houses the breakers that are connected to the circuits throughout the outdoor classroom
  • Both batteries are placed at the bottom of the electrical cabinet


Equipment Used: (5) Sunpower SPR-P17-345-COM solar modules, (1) SOL-ARK 5K-1P-N Inverter, (4) Kilovault 2100 Batteries

Size of system: 1,725 kW 

Maintenance: The system as designed should require little-to-no maintenance over the course of its operation. 


This solar pergola is the perfect solution for establishing an outdoor learning environment that is self-sustaining with very little need for maintenance. This structure makes a powerful statement that the university is committed to finding innovative and sustainable solutions to educate its students.
