To provide a lower-cost PV parking lot canopy to supply EV charging, three novel PV canopy systems are designed with a 25-year expected lifetime to match a standard PV warranty including: (1) an exclusively wood, single parking spot spanning system, (2) a wood and aluminum double parking spot spanning system, and (3) a wood and aluminum cantilevered system. The designs are presented as 5 stall and 6 stall builds, but all systems are entirely scalable to any amount of parking spots needed. To be published.
