Self-produced renewable energy is the cheapest form of energy. By adding another functionality to your otherwise empty parking space, you can ensure partial energy independence and protection for your vehicle. With Solarstone’s Click-on technology, we can use 390 W solar panels and achieve high productivity even on a small roof surface. A carport with solar panels will generate electricity for at least 25 years, and the panels are incredibly durable – they were developed for the Nordic market!
For optimal gains the carport should be connected to the power grid. This will allow you to use surplus energy for self-consumption or charge your electric car at any time of day. If desired, you can make a simple modification on your phone to charge your car with solar energy only, and no additional electricity will be purchased from the grid.
SOLAR CARPORT FOR HOMEOWNERS
A solar carport provides shade for vehicles and reduces electricity and maintenance costs associated with bad weather. If you own an electric car, it is worth adding a Solarstone 22 kW integrated EV charger – in doing so you will be leading the way to 100% sustainability!
The energy produced by the carport can be used to power your home.
One carport will accommodate two cars and has a 6 kW solar roof which will produce approximately 5400 kWh per year. The carport’s sides can be clad with timber boards or plexiglass to provide even more protection against the weather conditions.

SOLAR CARPORT FOR APARTMENT BUILDINGS
The purpose behind building a solar carport in apartment building car parks is to ensure a supply of renewable energy for the building and its residents’ electric vehicles. Energy demand and the load on the grid will increase due to the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, which will require more and more charging points.
All new and fully renovated residential buildings in the EU with more than 10 parking spaces must be equipped with the appropriate wiring for a charging point in each parking space.
For apartments, Solarstone offers solar carports with one position (two parking spaces) and a total of 6 kWp per position, which will produce approximately 5400 kWh per year. Positions can be added as needed. An optional feature is a 22 kW integrated EV charger.
