A carport that can generate power from the sun is debuting at the Electric Vehicle Symposium 23 (EVS-23) this week in Anaheim, California. Created by a company called Envision, the Lifeport can generate power for the home, or it can used to recharge electric vehicles directly. A 22 square foot carport incorporates 24 solar panels, and is rated at 4.8 kilowatts. It delivers and average of 16.4 kilowatt hours per day. The carport can be scaled up to a grid tied 6.4 kilowatt system.
The Envision solar carport is made of recycled light gauge steel framework that can be assembled via instruction manual and videos.
