As the price of electricity climbs, more people are turning to solar energy systems to provide them with a supplementary source of power. The green energy that these installations produce allows property owners to utilise less grid electricity or to tap into battery power in emergencies.

This solar carport supplies an average of 3,6 kW of solar power (at peak times on a clear, sunny day) straight to your car or house. It charges electric and plug-in hybrid car models.This smart solution by SUNWORX reduces charging costs and generates solar energy for the home or office.
The solar carport is made of prime bamboo, with stainless steel housing the glass solar modules. Bamboo is a sustainable, natural composite material. Its high strength-to-weight ratio makes it particularly useful for structures, which is why it is extensively used for scaffolding of even the highest skyscrapers in many countries.
Because the solar carport is integrated with the home energy management system, household electricity consumption and the power used for charging an electric vehicle can be balanced. Customers save money and make even more efficient use of solar energy.Drivers can now perform around 80% of their car’s charging processes either at home or at the workplace.
