BENEFITS OF SOLAR CANOPIES
Solar canopies serve a variety of purposes and can be beneficial for many businesses. Some of these benefits include:
- Generating clean solar electricity for buildings and EV charging stations
- Providing shade to keep cars cool
- Highlighting your organization’s use of clean solar energy
- Reducing energy expenses
GENERATING CLEAN ELECTRICITY
Solar power can reduce your company’s consumption of conventional energy sources. By using solar energy to help power your business, you’ll reduce air pollutants like:
- Sulfur dioxide
- Nitrogen oxides
- Particulate matter
- Greenhouse gasses
If you want to do your part and use cleaner energy, a LightWave solar canopy could be the right choice for you.
PROVIDING SHADE AND HEAT PROTECTION
When you walk through a big open parking lot in the summer, you likely experience the blinding sun with little or no shade, scorching asphalt, and a hot car. But what if the same parking lot was covered in solar panels? It would be shady and cooler, and it would be a perfect place to charge your electric vehicle. A solar parking canopy will provide extra shade, heat protection, and cleaner energy for your business — it’s a win-win!
HIGHLIGHTING YOUR USE OF CLEAN SOLAR ENERGY
Not only are solar parking canopies visually appealing architectural elements that enhance the curb appeal of your building, but they also highlight your use of environmentally-friendly solar energy. Customers, employees, and community members will be reminded of your commitment to clean energy each time they park or drive by. By investing in a solar parking canopy, you’re also setting an example for fellow business owners and encouraging them to make the switch to solar power.
REDUCING ENERGY EXPENSES
LightWave Solar energy solutions help your business generate its own electricity. As electric rates continue to go up, so will your savings. By installing a solar canopy, you own your power instead of renting it from the utility company.
