If your parking lot has space for a solar carport structure, you should definitely consider making the investment.
Produce Clean Energy and Protect Vehicles
Solar carports produce clean, renewable energy that can be used to power your business. They also shelter cars from rain, snow, and sun.
If Your Roof Is Not Suited for Solar
It might also be a smart idea to invest in a carport structure if your roof is not ideal for solar. Some roofs are entirely shaded by trees or nearby buildings; others can’t handle the weight of solar panels. In some instances, carports may even be a better value on a per-watt basis than putting panels on your roof.
Improved Lighting at Night
Because lighting is closer to the ground with a reflective material located above the parking lot’s finished surface, solar carports significantly improve a parking lot’s overall lighting.
