The photovoltaic « ombrière » was designed to fit most parking lots.

The roof

It is composed of two parts:
- the photovoltaic part covers 80% of the surface
- the non-photovoltaic part can be made of either corrugated iron or fabric, it plays a role of reflector.

A gutter placed at the bottom collects rainwater which can be conducted to a specific water collector.

The structure

The structure supporting the PV panels has a 20° inclination. It is made either of laminated wood or of metal.

It is composed of structures placed every 10 meters (4 car spaces). The concept is hence highly flexible: it can be installed on any size parkings from 12 parking spaces up to hundred parking spaces.

The « Ombrière » structure is factory-made to ensure its lifespan is at least as long as the one of the 25 year guaranteed PV panels.

It is mounted on the spot on concrete foundations.
