EV Solar Carports
Are you buying or do you already own and electric vehicle? High Peaks Solar is now offering a solar carport with integrated EV charger! There are several options in the design of these carports to consider:
- Steel/aluminum construction or wood construction
- Open sided carport or enclosed garage
- Parking space and charging stations for 1, 2, or more vehicles
- Different orientations of the parking spot opening versus the roof pitch/solar window
High Peaks Solar can work with you to custom design a solar carport/charging station to match your EV and the amount of driving you do. There are variety of EV charger sizes to choose from.
Any access electricity generated by the carport will contribute to your home’s electricity bill.
