Solar Panel EV Charger Solutions for Car Parks

Solar Powered EV Charging Stations

Solarpark is a specialist division within MetparkUK that provides high performance, cost efficient solar panel EV charger solutions for both new build and existing raised deck and multi-storey car parks.

Solar Panel EV Chargers for Car Parks from Solarpark

At Solarpark, we work with existing car park owners and operators to retro-fit solar powered electric vehicle charging stations improving the economic and environmental performance of the asset.

We can also install electric vehicle charging stations in new build raised deck or multi-storey car parks. We can design a solar electric vehicle charging solution in isolation, or as part of a comprehensive car park design and build package.

Solutions include roof mounted solar panels and solar carports. Solar carports are available as 2, 4 or 6-bays with a standard galvanised steel or powder coated frame. Solarpark offers a comprehensive design and installation service. We will install the frames, fixings, solar PV modules, inverters, accessories and EV chargers.

Power from solar panels can also be used to offset the day-to-day running costs of a car park, such as LED lighting systems and smart car park solutions.

Electric Vehicle Ownership in the UK

Electric vehicle ownership is on the rise. Latest figures cite there are over 535,000 plug-in vehicles on UK roads, 176,000 of which were registered in the previous 12 months.

There are around 20,000 car parking facilities in the UK offering a combined total of 3-4 million parking spaces. Yet latest data shows there are less than 45,000 public electric vehicle charge point connectors in the UK (on approximately 25,000 electric vehicle charger devices. That’s around 15 electric vehicle drivers per EV charging point.

Huge Opportunity for Car Park Owners/Operators

The increase in ownership of electric vehicles and the relative shortage of car parking spaces with EV charger facilities creates a huge opportunity for car park owners and operators to steal a march on the competition and become the preferred car park operator for drivers of electric vehicles.

Car parks, and in particular car park roof tops, offer huge untapped potential for solar electric vehicle charging. Solar panel EV charger solutions, such as Solar Carports, can help car park operators offset the costs, and carbon, associated with EV charging point provision. The solutions will also appeal to consumers who have chosen an electric vehicle in line with their environmental values.
