Solar Canopy Installations

Solar canopy-mounted photovoltaic structures above parking lots, parking garages, wastewater tanks and rooftops.

Solar Canopy Installations

Many organizations are embracing the idea of installing solar canopy-mount photovoltaic structures. Whether it’s a massive carport for a corporate parking lot or a structure above a wastewater tank, solar canopy installations have many benefits, especially for organizations dealing with high utility bills.

Solar Canopy Benefits

Investing in a solar canopy structure displays a strong commitment to a sustainable future among many other benefits:

Efficient. A solar canopy-mounted photovoltaic structure offers a far more efficient use of space and does not require extra land like a ground mounted system. If efficient use of space is a concern, consider a solar carport over a ground-mounted system.

Energy Savings. Since a canopy-mounted system is designed to tilt in an optimal direction, the maximum amount of sunlight can be captured to provide clean energy in a very efficient manner. This increased efficiency results in the ability for organizations to decrease electric payments and stabilize cash flow.

Versatile. Many solar canopy parking lots also incorporate electric car charging stations so that drivers of electric vehicles can recharge with solar power while they are parked.This improves the parking experience for employees and visitors.

Incentives. Some states, like Massachusetts, have specific tax incentives for solar canopy structures over ground mount.

ROI. For commercial buildings, factories, warehouses and offices, solar canopies offer numerous benefits in terms of green energy and savings. In fact, a company can expect to see a larger return on investment over the lifetime of their PV system.
