Since not every home is built with a garage and not all car owners can afford to have their own garages at home, they look for alternative solutions to protect their cars. And the solution is a carport.
Solar power seems to be all over the place these days. Solar energy methods installations or even photo-voltaic methods (PV in short) are popping up all over the place. Ads on TV, and local underwriting sponsorships on open public radio, market the benefits of solar energy installations regarding homeowners, organizations, and cities. But what exactly are photovoltaics? And how precisely are they improving the environment? More importantly, how could they be going to get all of us out of this recession? Well, look at the following.
Toyota is the largest automaker to date to place solar power into a mass produced car such as the Prius. But, you can be sure that more are on the horizon.
One other function of carport light fixtures is also to illuminate the area just outside the carport. This is a useful function for yard gatherings such as cookouts and parties or simply as an area to complete small building and car projects.
Next investigate is the site, know what there is to work with and what are possible constraints. How can alignment of the home added to energy savings (Passive Solar)? Where are the best views? Is there a view that should be blocked? Is there a possibility that someone can build within the viewshed? Will time be spent in the great room, kitchen? Where can natural light be used to its fullest? Should west windows be limited or eliminated? How does the driveway interact with the main entrance, garage, and most used entrance? Will there be a pool? Can slope be utilized for split level floor plan? Does fill dirt need to be brought in? Is it septic or sewer? Where can the leach field be located? What about an alternative leach field? What are the building setbacks? Are there natural areas to be preserved? Are there CC&R’s? Is there a Homeowner’s Association? Are there special zoning conditions to adhere to? Is it located in a flood zone? Are there any easements, etc.? Again, just a sampling of questions, each project is unique with its own assets and liabilities.
If you are looking to light up a special area, have you ever thought of using solar flood lights? These lights typically are high intensity lights that provide brilliant lighting for 20-50 feet from the source of the light. They are often comparable to conventional electric flood lights. In addition, there are a lot of added benefits from using these lights.
