Carports and canopies are dual-purpose structures providing shading at the same time as generating green electricity. Financially the solar carport/canopy structure will typically pay for itself in 15-20 years with payback varying by location and orientation. Solar carports and canopies can be provided with internal rain water drainage, optional lighting and vandal resistant electrics, you choose the specification. Maybe even add charging ports for electric cars or site vehicles. GB-Sol can provide a design and installation service for anywhere in the UK.
GB-Sol carport and canopy frame options
Our technical sales team and engineers can work with you or your architects / engineers for any configuration of carport or canopy structure. Off-the-shelf structures are available to which we can provide a full installation and commissioning service for all of the solar kit.
The GB-Sol Roof Integrated System (RIS) is a watertight and structural roof system that your architect can incorporate into a wide variety of situations. The RIS system can be used at very shallow angles and provide an elegant and almost seamless glass roof effect.
Oak framed carports and canopies are available in a variety of sizes and we can provide a fully installed service for these.
GB-Sol solar panel options
Using GB-Sol panels can open up a range of possibilities. For example, if your car-parking spaces are not suitable for a standard size solar panel we can make larger or smaller panels to fit, maximising the output from each space.
We also offer the option of clear backed panels, allowing light to pass through for an attractive semi-shaded effect. We can also modify the spacing of the cells to your specification to allow as much light through as is required.
The roof angle will usually be a minimum of 15º to ensure self cleaning and making the system very low maintenance.
