The most wasted space in Southern California?
Parking lots. But smart homeowners have found a way to make their parking space profitable. They’ve installed solar carports or shadeports and reduced their electrical costs significantly. A solar carport is a cost-effective way to install solar at your home. Each parking space accommodates 2kW of solar, so you can enjoy the economic benefits of solar without roofing inconvenience.
Los Angeles Air Force Base Installs Solar Shadeport
The Los Angeles Air Force Base recently chose Solar Electrical Systems to install two large solar shadeports to cut their annual electric bills by $70,000. Solar Electrical Systems developed a new panelizing procedure that was done in the module manufacturing factory (7 modules combined into one long panel) and shipped pre-assembled directly to the site. Each pre-assembled panel arrived pre-wired, requiring just two electrical connections. This greatly simplified the installation, reducing on-site labor costs by 20-3-%. The three-phase projects was completed ahead of schedule in three months. It provides shade for over 200 cars and will result in over $12.5 million dollars in electric savings over 30 years.
