Element Energy Systems (E2SYS) is at the forefront of implementing Solar Carport Systems, leveraging the existing real estate of home yards and commercial parking lots throughout New York State. These systems not only provide renewable energy but also offer a practical and sustainable solution for utilizing underused space.

Key Benefits and Advantages

  • Optimal Utilization of Space: Solar Carports can be installed in already developed and cleared areas like home yards and commercial parking lots. These locations are close to energy consumers, enabling efficient use of land that might otherwise be unproductive.
  • Significant Energy Generation: Solar Carports offer substantial potential for energy generation. For example, an average parking space could support a substantial solar array, providing a steady supply of renewable energy.
  • Environmental Impact: By converting sunlight into electricity, Solar Carports can contribute significantly towards achieving a zero-carbon energy sector. Additionally, they can help mitigate the urban heat island effect, providing a cooler environment in urban areas.
  • Economic Returns: Solar Carports can provide a strong return on investment over the long term. They not only reduce energy costs but can also generate income through the sale of excess power back to the grid.

Standard Sizes and Costs

The sizes of Solar Carports can be tailored based on the number of cars they are designed to accommodate:

    • 1 car: 12 to 18 feet
    • 2 cars: 20 to 24 feet
    • 3 cars: 30 to 38 feet
    • 4 cars: 40 to 48 feet

The standard height of a Solar Carport is 12 feet, sufficient to cover most types of vehicles.The cost of building a Solar Carport is determined based on the scale of the project and specific customer requirements.

Current State and Future Prospects

Despite the clear advantages, Solar Carports are still relatively uncommon. However, their potential is increasingly being recognized, and more home owners and businesses are starting to invest in these systems.

While the upfront cost can be substantial, this can potentially be offset by the long-term energy savings and potential income from selling excess power. Moreover, third-party financing options are also available, which can help to alleviate the upfront cost.

In conclusion, Solar Carports represent an untapped opportunity for sustainable energy generation and environmental protection. Despite the initial costs, the long-term benefits in terms of energy production, environmental impact, and potential economic returns make them a promising investment for the future. With companies like E2SYS leading the way, Solar Carports could become a common sight in home yards and commercial parking lots throughout New York State.
