Solar Covered ATV, Boat & RV Storage
Arizona Oasis has exciting changes coming up! The resort is putting in storage spots so you can do less hauling and leave all your equipment (RV, boat, side by side) at the River. Plus, we’re doing our part to contribute to renewable energy by covering the storage spaces with solar panels.
The Arizona Oasis solar system is a net metering system. During the day, the system will feed electricity into the main grid, allowing any extra electricity produced to be used by others. This will offset the power that the resort uses at night while the panels are not producing electricity. The solar system will make about as much electricity as the resort will use.
The solar panels at Arizona Oasis are photovoltaic panels — panels used to harness the sun for electricity. The other common type of panels, solar thermal panels, are used to heat homes.
Do You Want to store your ATV, Boat or RV?
The solar panels will be done around the end of June, 2019. For the summer, everyone will be able to use the storage area to temporarily park their boat trailers in the shade on a first come first serve basis.
Starting after Labor Day, you’ll be able to claim a solar covered storage spot for yourself so that you’ll have more time on the River when you’re not hauling your equipment back and forth every time.
Talk to the office for more information or take a look at the FAQ. Come check out the new solar spaces for yourself this summer!
