Need some shade on your company parking lot? Instead of a putting up a dumb structure that merely shades the parking lot, take a look at this solar powerhouse made by Ohio-based ProtekPark Solar. The company builds extremely sturdy pre-engineered covered parking structures specifically designed to support solar panels as the roof.
Why make electricity when you’ve got a business to run? You could be making some money on the side from making solar electricity. You can do it off your roof at home too, but I’m thinking there’s more space over your parking lot. The bigger the space, the more power it makes.The more solar power you can make, the more you can earn. That’s because in certain states now, you can get paid to make electricity through trading SRECs.
About seven states enable you to go into solar farming and earn cash from it. In New Jersey you could earn serious cash over the next 15 years from making solar power.
The next best state is Massachusetts, but in Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and soon, North Carolina you could earn some pretty good money from producing solar electricity. All these states allow you to trade SRECs that will earn cash for the next 15 years.
ProtekPark Solar structural steel roof purlins have a performance corrosion resistant coating on the inside and outside of the tube, and are designed to be able to take a beating and shed heavy mid-western snows.
Even if your business is not in a state where you could earn SRECs from your solar parking structure, you can eliminate your electricity bill in virtually every state using solar power that comes out cheaper than the utility power, through power purchase agreements. Every state has different incentives. And solar estimates are free.
