SolarWorld is installing solar panels on the rooftop of its Hillsboro plant as part of a solar demonstration park.

Last fall, SolarWorld built a 30-kilowatt solar-covered carport — an installation that provides coverage for 14 cars and one electric vehicle charger — as well as a solar demonstration park featuring four model rooftops exhibiting a variety of installation technologies.
