Carport solar canopies offer numerous benefits to public and private organizations that have large parking lots, including commercial properties, colleges and universities, sports stadiums and manufacturing facilities. Facility owners gain a source of clean, low-cost energy and high awareness of their commitment to solar power.

Solar canopies can be built at ground level, in elevated locations or on rooftops and can create covered walkways as well as carports. These canopies use space efficiently and effectively, without taking away other needed real estate.

Our experienced engineers can custom design a system to your exact specifications and budget needs. Ameresco also offers several financing options, including Solar PPA financing that can eliminate up-front costs. With complete design, build, maintain and operate capabilities, Ameresco can create a system that gives your organization all of the benefits of solar power without additional maintenance or staff.
