Solar carports in Arizona offer numerous benefits, sometimes even more than a traditional rooftop solar array. Below are some of the most popular advantages of installing a solar carport or canopy.
There are five main types of solar carports, each differing in build cost and tilt angle. During your commercial consultation, Sun Valley Solar Solutions will review what option is the best for your company to capture the most amount of sunlight on top while maximizing the shade underneath.
A single cantilever combines efficient energy production with lower build costs. Generally, this approach provides shade cover for a single parking row.
A double incline cantilever is generally used to provide shade for two parking rows. The tilt can be easily optimized for maximum sunlight capture.
A garage top canopy can generally be incorporated into new or existing garage structures, depending on unique facility factors. In many cases, a garage canopy can be oriented for maximum sunlight capture regardless of structure orientation.
Each structure features a single contiguous PV-covered canopy, maximizing energy production while providing shade for multiple parking rows.
A Y-shaped cantilever provides high-energy production while directing water runoff to the center of the structure.
We can develop a customized solar carport solution for your organization regardless of your energy goals or the area available in your parking lot. Check out some of our previous installations below.
