Optimize your parking areas

Enhance the value of your parking lot while contributing to the energy transition

Sun’R supports retailers, manufacturers, service providers and local authorities wishing to participate in the energy transition by installing solar canopies in their parking areas.

A solar canopy is a covered structure designed to protect vehicles parked in a parking lot, while producing electricity thanks to photovoltaic solar panels installed on the structure’s roof. As a real asset for your organization, solar canopies for parking lots offer numerous advantages.

I highly recommend Sun’R: communication was fluid and very clear, and the parking canopy project was of the highest quality. In fact, many of our customers have already shown an interest.

French Renewable Energy Acceleration Law

This law concerns existing parking lots, and requires companies and local authorities with outdoor parking lots larger than 1,500 square meters to equip at least half of this surface area with solar canopies. This obligation will come into force on:

 

  • July 1, 2026 for parking lots of 10,000 square meters or more.
  • July 1, 2028 for parking lots between 1,500 and 10,000 square meters.


The installation of solar panels in your parking areas will enable you to meet the objectives of the French Renewable Energy Acceleration Law.

Ensure your compliance

French Climate and Resilience Law

La loi Climat et Résilience votée en juin 2021 concerne les parcs de stationnement neufs. Elle a pour objectif de renforcer la performance environnementale et énergétique de certains bâtiments et de leurs aires de stationnement. À partir du 1er janvier 2024, tous les parkings construits en France d'une surface supérieure à 500 m² devront obligatoirement disposer d’ombrières photovoltaïques ou de dispositifs végétalisés, couvrant au moins la moitié de leur surface. En solarisant vos aires de stationnement, vous répondez aux objectifs de la loi Climat et Résilience.

Tertiary Decree

Le Décret Tertiaire impose une réduction de 40% des consommations d'énergie d'ici 2030 pour les bâtiments tertiaires existants de plus de 1000 m². La période de référence pour cette réduction doit être comprise entre 2010 et 2020. Cette mesure vise à encourager les propriétaires et gestionnaires de parking à adopter des mesures d'efficacité énergétique pour réduire leur consommation d'énergie et leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Pour s’assurer du bon respect de cette obligation, votre consommation d’énergie sera calculée sur la base de la consommation fournie par le réseau électrique. L’installation d’ombrières photovoltaïques est une solution efficace pour se mettre en conformité et répondre en partie, aux objectifs du Décret Tertiaire.

Produce your own green, local, carbon-free electricity

Solar canopies enable you to generate your own green, local electricity. You consume the energy produced directly, thus minimizing the energy you buy from your electricity supplier. Our self-consumption solution enables you to cover part of your energy needs, thus reducing your electricity bills over the long term and even generating additional income.
