Offer Your Customers Shelter and Power Your Business
Due to the increased popularity of solar PV systems, space can often become a premium in the process of becoming more environmentally friendly. Not only could an existing roof not qualify for solar – for example, due to the wrong orientation – but the investor may be looking for more direct benefits from a system.
For anyone with the available space, solar carports are constructions usually erected over a car park area – and they are set to become more popular
. The chosen tilt and orientation of the canopy mimics that of a building roof and helps maximise generation. You can then receive payments from the feed-in tariff – provided by the government – whilst seeing savings on your bills. This financial incentive is paid out over a twenty year period and will cover the cost of installation before making a profit.
Benefits of carports include:
- Reduced CO² emissions and lower energy bills; this is a plus for anyone who has current CSR targets to meet
- Protection from the elements; employees can park their car in the shade on very hot days and remain sheltered on the walk into work
- Gateway to further renewable investment; couple your solar carport with electrical vehicle charging to discover further benefits through lower tax bills and fuel consumption.
Alongside the financial benefits come a modernised look for a once dull stretch of land, further advertising your green credentials. Overall, carports offer alternative forms of revenue and the opportunity to reduce your carbon emissions, on large or small scales.
