What factors do you need to consider when analyzing whether a Solar Carport is right for your facility? Energy Freedom is a developer for solar carports on parking lots. We will help you engineer, and finance a solution. One of our first steps is to ensure all parties involved get a strong return on investment. Here are just a few of the key variables calculated when we conduct a financial analysis of your solar carport development.
Key factors to start with include:
Car Spaces Covered:
No. Solar Panels / Rating
Utility Costs Avoided:
Our spreadsheet will also analyze:
Yearly energy usage
Original system size
% of energy from Solar
We also want our clients to understand what Utility costs are avoided; this can work into the millions of dollars over a 20-year span. Other incentives to calculate include:
SEC 1603 Investment Tax Credit
CO2 Emissions Saved
Equivalent Trees Planted
Equivalent Auto Miles Avoided
We have also found intangibles such as employees come to work earlier to get a spot under the carport.
Also at the parking lot level we are starting to add Solar Street lighting. Regular parking lights on average cost $3,500 per light plus cost of trenching and wiring at $60 per foot- With ITC credits our clients are now reviewing the financials to use solar light posts instead, as the prices are comparable.
