Our clients, suppliers of commercial solar panels, Class A Energy Solutions approached PV Structures and our sister company Shade and Membrane Structures Australia to collaborate on a South Australian Commercial Project. The task was to design, engineer, fabricated and install a 100kW Solar Car Park Shade Structure on the heritage listed Old Spot pub site in the Adelaide suburb of Salisbury. Despite the horrific “old quarry site” ground conditions, SMSA were able to complete the job to the highest standards and leaving everyone ecstatic with the successful outcome.
Benefits of Commercial Car Park Solar Structures
The benefits of the installation commercial solar panels as shade structure were clear to the operators of the Old Spot Pub. By including the commercial solar panels within the design of a carpark shade structure, the benefits were amplified beyond a conventional solar panel installed on the rooftop. Not only is the structure providing free solar power to the pub, decreasing electricity costs by utilising solar energy. But there are other advantages also. Having a shade structure to protect the cars of patrons in the blisteringly hot South Australian climate. This is a clear bonus. This bonus adds significant value to the site and to the experience of the pub patrons. Don’t forget, whilst there is the obvious benefit of the solar and sun shade, car park shade structures provide protection from all of the elements of the harsh climate here in Australia.
