Smartpark solar powered carport
Martifer Solar introduce the Smartpark solar powered carport that generates an income from parking areas.
Smartpark is an innovative new concept that will enable local authorities and large retailers to benefit from the attractive returns available with the Feed-in Tariff.
Local authorities are expected to welcome Smartpark as a way of helping them make use of renewable energy and comply with their statutory responsibilities to reduce carbon emissions.
To key retailers, Smartpark will represent an opportunity to turn an empty space into a major revenue earner.
Developed by the Martifer Solar RandD+I Division, the Smartpark concept is based around a Solar PV-enabled carport that features robust technology and a simple 'plug and play' mounting system.
Electric-car charging points can be included, which will be of particular interest to local authorities who are now required to provide e-car charging points as part of the government's drive to encourage non-polluting vehicles.
Smartpark carports are quick and easy to install and their attractive, modern appearance improves the look of a car park as well as emphasising the green credentials of the owner/operator.
Being a modular system with single and dual versions, a Smartpark installation can be easily configured to suit any car park area.
Optional features include a choice of colours, a higher level of anodising, self-cleaning glass, rainwater drainage, lighting systems and impact protection for the roof supports.
Martifer Solar has devised a variety of innovative financial schemes (utilising FiT payments) to make the adoption of Smartpark technology into a very affordable investment for both public- and private-sector clients.
