Solar energy is officially the most affordable and cleanest form of all renewable energy available in the world. By investing in a Solar Car Ports, your new structure will generate free, clean electricity, which will be discreetly wired into your building. The average solar panel measures around 3.25 feet x 6.42 feet, while the average car space measures around 8.85ft x 16.4ft, each car spot can potentially have around 3kW worth of solar panels. This equates to 4.8MWh worth of electricity per year, generating anywhere from $720 to over $1,000 in savings, per car bay.
Solar Car Ports for Landlords
If you’re the building’s landlord owner, you can install a Solar Car Port and sell the solar electricity your system generates to your tenants at the much lower rate.
A revenue stream becomes available to the landlord owner, as you’re receiving payment for electricity that was essentially free to generate. This revenue can be used to pay off your Solar Car Port, further contribute to a sinking fund, or pay for upgrades to increase the attractiveness of your site.

With solar power, you don’t need to switch it on in the morning or switch it off at night – the system will do this seamlessly and automatically. You also don’t need to switch between solar power and the grid, as your solar system can determine when is best to do so based on the amount of energy being consumed in your home. In fact, a solar system requires very little maintenance (as there are no moving parts) which means you’ll hardly know it’s there. This also means a good quality solar power system will last a long time.
Your solar inverter (usually installed in your garage or in an accessible spot), can provide you with information like the amount of electricity being produced at any particular point in time or how much it has generated for the day or in total since it has been operating. Many quality inverters feature wireless connectivity and sophisticated online monitoring.
If it seems complicated, don’t worry, one of Solar Power One expert Energy Consultant will guide you through the process of how solar power works either by phone, email, or via a no-obligation home consultation.
