Car Ports

SOLAR CARPORTS IN SAN DIEGO

EFFICIENT DESIGN FOR LASTING ENERGY SAVINGS

Carports are a great way to install solar when a business’s roof space is limited. Solar carports are similar to ground-mounted solar panel systems. A solar carport is basically an overhead canopy mounted into the ground at a height comfortable enough for large cars and trucks to park under.

Carports offer security, shade, and the power of solar! Call HES Solar today at (619) 350-0032 to speak with a highly-trained San Diego solar professional about your project. Learn more about our commercial solar projects.

BENEFITS OF SOLAR CARPORTS

Carports are very similar to ground-mounted solar systems. Carports are not limited to roof space, structure, or direction. Therefore, carports have the ability to be built and tilted in any direction to optimize energy efficiency.

A few of the many benefits of solar carports include:

NET ENERGY METERING 3.0 INFORMATION

Net Energy Metering 3.0 (NEM 3.0) is the incoming law created by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The new tariffs and fees will impact both residential and commercial solar systems built in California. 

As this notice is posted in November of 2022, the Proposed Decision from the CPUC outlining the proposed NEM 3.0 terms is expected soon. This comes after a year’s delay. Once the new agreement is finalized and passed into law, there will exist a designation of the deadline under which new systems will continue to qualify for NEM 2.0 rates. 

The new NEM 3.0 rates will be designed to lower the value of electricity during the daytime hours, when solar is producing, and increase the value of electricity during the evening hours, when solar homes and businesses purchase electricity. In short, NEM 3.0 will create a “sell low, buy high” proposition to new solar system owners. 

To Californians looking to install a solar system on their home or commercial building, the NEM 2.0 rates will be preferred. As of this post, the solar industry does not know the details of how different the NEM 3.0 rates will be from the NEM 2.0 rates.
