Solar Car Port

A Solar Car port will improve your business’s on-site car parking and give you the highest yield possible for your space and reduce your dependence on high energy tariffs, by generating your own clean, renewable energy.

Solar car ports also offer you the opportunity to enhance your staff and customer’s satisfaction, by showing them that you have a determined agenda towards your company’s energy future.

EV charging stations electric vehicle car charging ports can be installed in conjunction to help ease pressure on the ever-increasing demand for charging stations. Excess energy can be fed directly into the EV via the charge station, Alternatively, excess energy can be fed into an energy storage system to provide cost effective energy for your night-time demand.

All our solar car ports are bespoke and designed upon your business’s carpark layout. All materials for the sub structure and panels are of the highest quality, giving your business the greatest reward on your investment possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?
Each Solar Power Provider UK installed solar car port is bespoke to your requirements, giving a base support frame for a solar PV array.

Solar PV panels are made up of wafers of silicon trapped between layers of glass, which is then coated in an anti-glare film. Sunlight hits the panels and starts a reaction by energising the electrons within the silicon solar cells. As they move and bump into one another they create a direct current (DC) of electricity. This power then passes through a solar inverter, transforming it to alternating current (AC). The AC solar power is then used instantaneously by your business. Any excess solar electricity is then exported back to the grid, alternatively any excess energy can be stored in a battery, which can then be used beyond daylight hours or be fed directly into an EV charge station.

Is planning permission required?
Yes, Planning permission is required for all solar car ports. Our design team will help with this application every step of the way.
Will I lose car parking spaces?

However, there may be a situation where you have the space at home, in which case we will be more than happy to assist you. Call to discuss with one of our team members.

What is the possible energy yield?
Each Solar Power Provider UK installed solar car port is bespoke to your requirements. The maximum possible yield is dependant upon your system size, weather conditions and the orientation of the panels. These factors are determined by the overall space available on site.
