Get Shaded Parking While Producing Renewable Energy
At Solar Gain, we proudly build our own solar carports—metal structures that are designed to cover parking areas and have solar panels built on top. Solar panel carports provide shaded parking and also extend the life of asphalt by deflecting the sun—all while producing solar power. Installing solar panels on top of a carport structure enables your business to use the energy produced from your solar system in your facility.
Is your commercial parking lot an ideal space for a solar carport?
Solar panel carports are becoming more and more popular in the commercial sector, and Solar Gain proudly designs and builds our own carport solutions. Our expertise in project management, engineering, design, and solar energy allow us to build this technology in-house for our commercial customers.
Since the team of experts at Solar Gain builds our own solar carports, other solar companies will contract out to us to provide the steel substructure for their carports. Since our products are of such high-quality, this is a highly trusted service that we provide.
If your parking lot has space for a solar carport structure, you should definitely consider making the investment.
Solar carports produce clean, renewable energy that can be used to power your business. They also shelter cars from rain, snow, and sun.
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.
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.
Many factors play into the successful installation of a solar panel carport. Fortunately, the highly experienced technicians at Solar Gain know how to properly install a solar panel carport system for your business. There are various requirements for the degree of tilt, the type of soil, lighting, and foundation design. We take into account all geotechnical issues and soil composition so that our experts can engineer the perfect solar carport structures for wherever your business is located.
