The wooden photovoltaic shelters represent a practical and aesthetically beautiful solution, to install a photovoltaic system in your home, without having to face the quite expensive costs of a system placed on the roof. They offer the advantage of bringing energy to each independent structure, but connected to one’s home, such as garages, sheds, closets, etc .: They combine design and aesthetics with the environment in addition to a good economic return if combined with an energy account. They are built using various types of wood, treated with specific substances to withstand the most adverse environmental conditions, including hail. They are widespread in public buildings such as swimming pools, holiday farms, hotels, parks, sports facilities, where they are mainly used as parking lots.

Fixed wooden canopy

Canopy leaning against the external wall Canopies and Pergolas are the ideal solutions to be placed in the garden, to repair objects from the weather or the sun, such as protecting the bodywork of your car, or repairing gardening tools. For the construction of Canopies and Pergolas in the garden, it is necessary to obtain the appropriate permits issued by the technical office of the Municipality of residence. They can be made in different ways, depending on your preferences or the size of the spaces available. They can be leaning against the external wall of the house, or built away from the house in fixed structures on the ground. In the first case it is possible to create verandas, that is covered spaces to be used as an annex or study or relaxation room, the others as “gazebos”, places of relaxation, or as greenhouses or closets.

Photovoltaic wooden roof The construction of Canopies and Pergolas involves costs that depend on the materials used and the installation. Most of the Canopies and Pergolas are made of wood. This material is increasingly replacing other synthetic materials, because it is considered eco-sustainable. Wood is a natural, non-polluting element that has particular properties that make it irreplaceable. It is an excellent thermal and acoustic insulator; elastic and resistant to stresses, even of a seismic nature; beautiful to look at, decorative and makes the rooms warm and welcoming. A pergola made of wood embellishes the garden. Today they are spreading more and more and are combined with photovoltaic systems. In this case it is possible to access state incentives, because these constructions fall within the categories of properties subject to deductions for energy redevelopment interventions.

Solar photovoltaic system The photovoltaic shelters have been designed to increase the space to be allocated to a photovoltaic system. They are innovative and very versatile. They are used in private homes, but also in public facilities such as hotels, parking lots, etc. In the motorway rest stops along the highways, they satisfy both the energy needs of the structures and a shelter for parked motorists. A photovoltaic system uses photovoltaic modules to absorb solar energy and convert it into electricity. Generally connected to the mains. The electricity necessary for the needs of the house is supplied by photovoltaics during the day and by the electricity grid at night. In fact, a photovoltaic system only works during the day precisely because it uses the energy of the sun. It is an ecological system and helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the air.
