Solar shelters are a great example of how smart design and engineering can make use of alternative spaces.
Shelter-mounted solar panels make use of the tops of awnings, gazebos and other structures. While limited in the amount of power they can produce, shelter installations are a great way to offset your overall energy consumption without a major investment.
Solar shelters are both functional and affordable to install, making them an ideal choice for parks and recreation facilities. In addition to generating power, they provide a shady space where visitors can gather.
The power created by a well-designed solar shelter can lead to ongoing savings on monthly utility bills — an important benefit for public parks that are trying to make the most of their operating budget.
