Solar Car Ports
Existing Car Port or Build a Solar Shade Structure
Transforming an existing carport, garage, or parking
structure into a solar energy producing asset is a
popular concept and growing trend on the Central Coast
of California. With plenty of sun, rising utility costs,
and empty roof faces it is a worthwhile investment as
well as an easy way for any home or business to take
advantage of renewable energy. We can help you design a
solar carport specific to your location or install a
solar system to complement your existing structure and
Solar Carports turn parking lots and driveway parking
spaces into energy producing assets. If designed for
solar, the car port and entire project cost also
qualifies for the 30% Federal Tax Credit while also
providing sheltered usable parking or storage space. We
work with local engineering firms and fabricators to
design custom solar shade structures or can help you
select a prefabricated structure. We like those designed
by Schletter and Baja Construction.

Electic Vehicle Charging Stations can also be
incorporated into these carport designs and provide an
easy and convenient location to fuel up your EV or PEV.
Charging stations can be offered for free to your
visitors, students, employees, and family or you can
have users help support your solar investment by
installing a pay per charge unit that allows for credit

Drive For Free!
With the extra energy your solar system produces you can
reduce your trips to the gas station or stop using
fossil fuels all together! Many of our clients have
bought the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, or Plug In Toyota
Prius and still don't have utility bills or pay for gas.
Some of the charging stations we recommend are Clipper
Creek's LCS-25 Level 2 charger, the worlds smallest High
Power charging station and Schneider's Level 2 EVlink
