Commercial solar carports can encourage other sustainable initiatives, as they can provide a source of power for your employees to charge their electric cars – secure your company’s energy future with car park solar panels from EvoEnergy.
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 solar carport installation from initial concept through implementation – we’ll also take care of the planning application and grid connection consents for your car park solar panels.
What are the benefits of commercial solar carports?
By installing commercial solar carports, you can make the most of your car park space and increase your energy generational capacity, which provides extra benefits to your site and your visitors, especially when paired with EV charging technologies.
The benefits of solar carports include:
- Adding capacity: they increase onsite generation if other roof spaces are unusable.
- Financial: they will reduce your energy bills.
- Reduced CO₂ output: commercial solar carports enhance your CSR and green credentials.
- Electric vehicle charging: you also have the option to connect EV charging points for staff and visitors to charge their electric vehicles with electricity generated by the PV system, in addition to company EVs.
- Staff and visitor benefits: solar carports canopies also protect cars from the elements and keep staff and visitors sheltered when getting out of their vehicle and walking to the site.
- Visual appeal: solar carports positively transform the look of your car park. In other words, they look great!
