Commercial solar carports can encourage other sustainable initiatives, as it can provide a source of power for your employees to charge their electric cars.
What are solar carports?
Solar carports are ground-mounted canopy installations that stretch out over car parking spaces. The canopy roof area is slightly tilted and offers a perfect platform for solar panels to be seamlessly mounted, which also adds to the aesthetics of the structure.
The tilted roof design offers natural drainage for rainwater, which is then collected by guttering and channelled away. Electricity generated by the carports’ solar panels is then immediately available to be used onsite.
We can provide a bespoke design and project manage your requirements, from initial concept to detailed design and implementation to include planning application and grid connection consents. Our service does not stop at system hand over as we also offer maintenance and monitoring packages too.
What are the benefits of commercial solar carports?
