Solar Shade Structures


We know solar carports. With over 25 years of experience in the steel industry, we have plenty of involvement and know the market well. We analyze each individual project, determine which type of carport or structure best suites your needs, and provide the highest quality solar steel canopy available. We have a hands on approach to ensure that our customers are left more than satisfied with no unanswered questions.

Over the past two and a half decades, we have worked across Southern AZ, Phoenix, Northern and Southern CA, and New Mexico building projects of all shapes and sizes. Our extensive experience in the steel industry enables us to provide state of the art carport designs.

Our innovative solar carport designs include the “Solar Purlin” and “Button-Punch Purlin” which allow our carports to fit together tightly and securely. Traditional Solar Structures used purlins which required electricians to unsafely climb on top of the carport to install and fasten the panels in place. The Solar Purlin allows installers to safely remain in their scissor lifts and slide the panels in one by one. After panels are in place, straightened and squared, they are secured down with solar “L” clips. These patented designs enable us to place panels within 1/8″ of each other without any issues of shadowing.

With these innovative designs of solar carports, we can install more panels in smaller areas, giving our customers more power produced per square foot. Not only are our structures economical, they are safer to install and significantly reduce installation times.
