A Commercial Solar Power Generation Option with Incentives
A solar carport or canopy is designed and built to provide sizable solar energy production capacity either as an expansion to an existing rooftop system or in place of the same. Unlike traditional ground mounted designs, they are dual purpose, most commonly providing covered car parking as well as hundreds of kilowatts of solar power. Where shade is needed for covered storage or an outside working shed, solar canopies are also a perfect fit.
In high population density states like Massachusetts and Rhode Islands, efficient and economic use of land is important. Because of the dual use benefit, solar canopies are often given unique, preferential advantages with solar incentives.
