Kern Solar Structures Partners with S2A Modular and FreeVolt USA as Exclusive Provider of Solar CarPorTs™ at Its Nationwide Network of MegaFactories

December 3, 2020

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (Dec. 3, 2020) — Kern Solar Structures, manufacturer of premium-grade custom solar structure solutions, is partnering with S2A Modular and FreeVolt USA as the exclusive provider of Solar CarPorT™ for the company’s network of 35 MegaFactories throughout North America. The first phase of the partnership kicks off with the construction of two custom 240kW solar carport systems at S2A Modular’s Patterson and Hemet MegaFactories.

The first Solar CarPorT system being installed consists of three individual carport structures which are designed to allow for system expansion and increased generation capacity as the factories expand its operations. The individual structures are coated in a two-tone polysiloxane protective coating in S2A Modular’s trademark green and white. They also feature laser cut, back-lit, solar wrap column enhancements which include an illuminated S2A Modular logo.

These structures are designed to support a custom PVGRAF solar system designed by FreeVolt USA consisting of more than 800 300W PVGRAF solar panels. FreeVolt USA is the world’s only manufacturer of graphene-based PV modules, which generate more power for longer during the day than conventional panels allowing S2A Modular to take advantage of its revolutionary technology. In addition, FreeVolt’s modules are some of the most durable on the market, ensuring the highest levels of energy production throughout their lifetime.

Since all MegaFactories are designed from the ground up to operate at maximum efficiency levels, the Solar CarPorTs and PVGRAF modules are critical components and will provide all energy needed to run the factory. Each MegaFactory will also utilize a large commercial energy storage system like the Tesla PowerPack™ to store energy generated by the FreeVolt modules.

S2A Modular is changing the way the world looks at modular construction. As manufacturers of the world’s first self-sustaining, custom luxury smart homes, S2A Modular has developed a new standard in stylish design using tailor-made features and high-end materials. They have emerged as industry leaders in smart home design, modular construction, Net Zero and Net Positive energy efficiency using renewable building materials. Due to their modular construction practices, S2A Modular is able to produce large quantities of homes across the country and disrupt the current home building market.

“Part of S2A Modular’s success has been choosing the right partners, and we are very excited at what Kern is able to bring to the table. Their exclusive use of high-quality materials allows them to create some of the best and strongest solar awnings in the industry,” said John Rowland, president and co-founder of S2A Modular. “One of the most important features of Kern’s Solar CarPorT is its expansion capability that allows us to seamlessly add more awnings and solar generation capacity if needed. Solar is a critical aspect to our MegaFactory operations, and we are confident in Kern’s ability to deliver structures that will last for decades.”

Construction of the Patterson MegaFactory Solar CarPorT System is scheduled for late 2020.

California Modular Home Builder Selects Northern Florida MegaFactory Location

October 30, 2020

S2A Modular – creator of the first electrically self-sustaining, custom and smart-connected GreenLux™ luxury residences and commercial buildings – announced it has purchased 51 acres of land for its first East Coast MegaFactory in Macclenny, Fla., 30-miles west of Jacksonville.

PALO ALTO, Calif., (Oct. 30, 2020) S2A Modular – creator of the first electrically self-sustaining, custom and smart-connected GreenLux™ luxury residences and commercial buildings – announced it has purchased 51 acres of land for its first East Coast MegaFactory in Macclenny, Fla., 30-miles west of Jacksonville. The site is located in the Enterprise East Industrial Park, currently home to a major Walmart distribution center as well as several other small and medium-size businesses. Once operational, the company’s third MegaFactory will feature approximately 13 different buildings and structures totaling more than 240,000 square feet. The factory is expected to generate more than $80 million of economic impact to the region – and an additional $60 million in secondary impact due to the scale of its operations.

 

The land purchase in Macclenny was orchestrated with the help of the Baker County Economic Development Council and the Baker County Chamber of Commerce. Located near Interstate 10 and several major state highways, Enterprise East Industrial Park’s prime location offers S2A Modular several strategic advantages including access to a large skilled workforce, international airport, major rail lines and a rapidly growing population.

When fully operational, the world-class facility will manufacture annually 5,000 revolutionary GreenLux™ luxury smart residences, smart commercial buildings, hotels and multifamily units. The establishment of a MegaFactory in Macclenny, in addition to our MegaFactories in Patterson and Hemet, is part of S2A’s rapid expansion plan to build a total of 35 MegaFactories across the nation by 2025. With S2A present within a region, home buyers and real estate developers will have ready access to higher quality, energy-efficient homes, hotels, multiuse facilities and commercial buildings produced in a climate-controlled factory using technologically advanced construction techniques. Economic development will be delivered from both the manufacturing facility, as well as the buildings that are manufactured there. S2A Modular currently has a rapidly expanding order pipeline of 100,000 homes and commercial buildings nationally.

“The entire S2A Modular team is extremely excited to announce the location of our third MegaFactory in Baker County, and our first on the East Coast. We are grateful to Darryl Register, executive director of the Baker County Chamber of Commerce and James Bennet, county commission chairman, for their work helping us find the perfect factory location,” said Brian Kuzdas, CEO and co-founder of S2A Modular. “They were instrumental in finding shovel ready property which allows for the rapid construction of our MegaFactory and subsequent production of thousands of sustainable, affordable luxury homes for this region. Northern Florida is a prime location for us to help usher in the GreenLux™ revolution – lowering the cost of living and raising the standard of living through electrically self-sustaining luxury smart homes and smart commercial buildings. Our homes and commercial structures are engineered to be the lowest amperage, lowest voltage buildings on Earth and we look forward to making a significant long-term impact to city of Macclenny, Baker County and the city of Jacksonville.”

 

“As the county commission chairman, we are very excited to have S2A Modular choose Baker County as the location for their new manufacturing facility,” said James Bennet, county commission chairman. “The sustainable aspects of the company, their products and the quality jobs they are creating are a great fit for Baker County and our region.”

 

“On behalf of the entire chamber of commerce, I am honored to officially welcome S2A Modular to Baker County,” said Darryl Register, executive director of the Baker County Economic Development Council. “I thoroughly enjoyed helping them find the perfect location for their first East-Coast MegaFactory and am really looking forward to seeing its positive impacts on Baker County. Affordable, sustainable housing is definitely needed in this region and I am very impressed at how they are able to use renewable energy and new technologies to solve many of the issues facing our society.”

#GreenLux Brand Demand – Affordable, Sustainable and Healthy

  • The factory already has a large pipeline of pre-ordered homes and commercial buildings ranging from single family homes to multifamily homes, world-class hotels, and commercial mixed-use buildings.
  • The creation of the MegaFactory gives home buyers and real estate developers convenient access to better built, sustainable structures produced in a climate-controlled factory using the latest construction techniques and high-quality building materials.
  • With health and safety as a top priority, S2A Homes now feature optional low-voltage UV lighting that can be used safely to sanitize surfaces when residents are away from their home; as well as the addition of attached or detached “clean rooms” that can be used for decontamination prior to entering the home.
  • In addition to the large pipeline of pre-ordered homes and commercial structures, S2A Modular will also be developing 10 “Bahia Village” communities for adults 55+; each community will be electrically self-sustaining and feature at least 70 one- and two-bedroom homes

John Rowland, president and co-founder – S2A Modular

  • “I am extremely excited to announce that we have officially broken ground and construction is underway on our Patterson MegaFactory. We have a very experienced team working aggressively to complete all the grading, trenching and foundation work needed to start building our main factory structure. Once complete in early 2021, this facility will begin producing some of the highest quality, most sustainable, luxury, smart homes in the world, specifically for Northern California and the surrounding area. Several people were integral to making this happen, especially City of Patterson Mayor Deborah M. Novelli and David L. White, CEO of Opportunity Stanislaus. Their warm greeting and help throughout the process was invaluable, and we look forward to fulfilling our commitment to providing a significant economic impact to the region.”
