Solar Canopies & Carports

Clif Bar Solar PV & Solar Thermal

Solar canopies and carports are typically ground or roof mounted steel structures topped with solar panels. They are a smart way to produce energy from large sun exposed surfaces while providing covered parking for drivers or shaded rest areas for people. During peak sunlight midday, your building can run off the power generated by solar canopies. They are ideal for: 


  • Business plazas

  • Multi-family properties

  • Schools

  • Shopping centers

  • Gas stations

  • Boat storage facilities

  • RV storage facilities


Solar shade structures have gained popularity in the renewables market. Many now also feature electric vehicle charging stations.

Why Go Solar?

When it comes to combining solar energy with your business operation, think of solar as an investment that actually provides a return. A custom designed solar PV system or solar thermal hot water heating system will reduce your operating expenses, protect you from volatile utility costs, show your commitment to the environment and the green business movement, and can even increase the reliability of your electrical system.
