Solar Carports: Installation and Sales | The Green Panel - carport-image

Michigan Solar Carport Installation Company


Solar carports are overhead canopies built to cover parking areas and are distinct from solar panels installed onto pre-existing carport structures. Solar carports have many things in common with ground mount solar arrays, which are angled panel modules installed on the ground rather than on a rooftop. 

Both ground mount solar and solar carports eliminate the need for a surface on which the panels could be mounted. The primary difference between a solar carport and a typical ground mount installation is that carports are taller in order to make space for a car to park. Otherwise, the two are quite similar and each offer the benefit of allowing installers to orient the panels at the most optimal angle for sunlight exposure.

The great advantage of solar carports is that they don’t require additional land the way a ground mount does. As a result, solar panel carports offer a more efficient use of space than ground mounted panels. If you are concerned about efficient use of space, you may wish to consider a solar carport over a ground mounted system. Overall, solar panel carports have less restraints or conflicts than ground mounted solar, and may be considered preferable under many circumstances.
