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:
 System Size:
 Car Spaces Covered:
 No. Solar Panels / Rating
 Capacity:
 Useful Life:
 Utility Costs Avoided:

Our spreadsheet will also analyze:
 Yearly energy usage
 Original system size
 RECs allowed/yr.
 % of energy from Solar
 Scalability
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
 Energy Produced
 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.  If you are interested in an analysis of
