Advantages of Solar Parking Canopies
Parking lot solar canopies are an increasingly attractive option for C&I businesses.
With solar panels raised above the existing parking areas, installations can generate electricity while providing shade and protection from the elements and UV rays for employee and customer vehicles.
These systems are designed so they do not impact the flow of traffic and parking capacity and can even be added atop existing structures. Solar parking canopies can also incorporate lighting for enhanced safety or electric vehicle charging stations for an additional green component.
