Utility Carport System

UT-Gen I

The SFUSA UT-Gen I Carport is the ideal hybrid solar racking solution for residential projects. Solar Foundations’ versatile fixed-tilt structure can be elevated to serve as a carport, utility storage structure, or as a general canopy. Our durable design permits the elevated system to be installed on uneven ground or in areas that have minor slopes over the entire width of the structure. The existing material and equipment used for the SFUSA Ground Mount structure are also employed for the SFUSA UT-Gen I Carport, allowing Solar Foundations’ installation crews to install the carport system quickly and efficiently. Depending on the desired configuration, the SFUSA UT-Gen I Carport provides a minimum clearance height of approximately 8ft at the south edge of the array.

  • A typical array tilt for the utility carport is approximately 5 degrees to keep the north posts around a maximum height of 10 ft
  • Complete structural drawing packages available, including wet stamped seals that can be submitted with your permit package
  • Compatible with a wide range of modules
  • Each structure is designed specifically to meet/exceed local building codes
  • High-grade steel fully galvanized in accordance with ASTM standards and high-strength aluminum alloys
  • Custom layouts are available
  • 25-year guarantee against failure

The solar modules act as the carport roof. While this provides the desired shading and significant protection from rain, the system is not intended to be waterproof. Thus, the utility carport does allow some water and sunlight to pass through the small gaps between the panels.
