Who Can Use Solar Carports?
Empower install both Domestic and Commercial carports whether its purpose is just for one or two cars outside your house or you’re considering installing solar to accommodate a whole row of cars.
That’s what’s so good about solar, almost anyone can use it and it benefits everyone involved. Solar carports are practical for both businesses and properties that are interested in solar but are unable to have it installed on their building's roof due to the lack of space they have. Carports give properties like this the ability to generate solar and turn an ineffective space into a productive investment.
What Exactly Are Solar Carports?
Solar carports are slightly tilted structures that are fixed into to the ground with the purpose of providing shade through an extended sunshade cover.
How Do Solar Carports Help The Environment?
Solar is useful to everyone, and it's especially useful for the environment. Solar is natural, green, renewable energy that doesn’t release toxic emissions into the atmosphere. So, you can reduce your carbon footprint and do your bit for the environment.
Fortunately, solar carports require very little maintenance which means other than the initial installation costs you don’t have a lot else to think about.
Can Carports Have Multiple uses?
Carports are particularly useful in the winter when it's wet and windy, there’s nothing worse than having to run to your car trying to keep away from the rain as best as you can, installing a solar carport means you can avoid this altogether.
I bet you’ve never thought about using carports as anything other than shade for your car and a natural electricity generator. But carports don’t have to be used just for these purposes, a domestic carport could be used as a storage space or even act as an alternative for a garage.
How Much Does A Solar Carport Cost?
Prices of solar carports can differ depending on the size of the structure you require and the type of panels you’re interested in purchasing. We install carports ranging from one car space areas to large scale car parks so the difference in cost can vary significantly. We appreciate you want an idea of how much its going to cost you before making any big decisions, fill out our contact form or get in contact to discuss it further with our team.
How Can A Solar Carport Impact My Car Park?
Solar car park canopies are designed to provide an aesthetically pleasing yet efficient solution for what otherwise would be unproductive space.
