Solar canopies have a lot in common with ground-mounted solar panels. Both above-ground and solar carports eliminate the need for a surface on which to mount the panels. The main difference between a solar carport and a typical above-ground installation is that the carports are taller to make room for parking the car.
The great advantage of solar canopies and terraces is that they do not require additional land, as is the case with surface mounting. As a result, solar sheds offer a more efficient use of space than ground-mounted panels.
Such a photovoltaic installation is both an ecological and economical way to obtain energy for the home. However, it can also be used for other purposes, such as powering an electric or hybrid car.
The eCarport module is a semi-flexible and lightweight solar panel designed for BIPV installation on roofs and carports. It has been designed for a long service life in demanding environments and is optimized for new roofs and renovation of existing roofs. Each tile incorporates the technology of monolithically connected CIGS cells.
