Benefits of Installing Our Solar Carports

Cut Carbon Emissions with Renewable Energy

Solar carports can generate significant quantities of clean energy for use on site, to be fed back into the grid or for charging EV vehicles.

Make use of your car parks to generate emission-free electricity to reduce your corporate carbon footprint, and make big steps towards your Net Zero goals.

In addition, electricity generated onsite helps to offset rising energy costs, protecting the bottom line and delivering ongoing cost savings each year. Complete system payback period is generally between 6-8 years.

European Designed and Sourced Materials

Many of the components and materials we use are sourced from the UK and Europe.

We prefer to use European suppliers for solar panels and components, due to the proven high-quality and robustness of their products. There is also the advantage of lower transport emissions than importing from the Far East.

Customised To Your Needs

Choose a carport entirely customised to your needs – choose your roof type, incorporate lighting, EV charge points, or company colours as desired.

The solar panels work in exactly the same way as a traditional rooftop solar installation, with connection to your existing electricity supply, back up battery storage, or connection to the grid (dependent on DNO approval).
