Frequently asked questions

Find out more about how Shift to Solar works

What subsidies are there for solar carports?

When you buy a charging station on a business basis, there are several subsidies available with tax advantages. These include the Environmental Investment Allowance (MIA), the VAMIL and the KIA. To claim these, your company must meet certain terms comply.

Several subsidies are also available for solar panels. The KIA applies to all kinds of business assets, including charging stations. It is the most general investment deduction for businesses. Want to know more? Check our page on subsidies and tax breaks.

Is a permit required for a solar carport?

Installing a carport in a business park or car park may require a permit. This is because business parks and car parks often face different types of regulations than private property. It is therefore always advisable to contact the environment desk prior to construction. There you can also apply for the permit right away. If you have Shift to Solar install your carport, we can help with the permit application.

What is the payback period?

The payback period of a solar carport is determined by the balance between yield and cost. The exact payback period of a solar carport with glass-glass solar panels cannot be determined immediately. It depends on the costs incurred, the amount of sunlight the site receives, the power of the solar panels, the energy price and any subsidies or financial support.

However, our glass-glass solar panels do have higher efficiency and durability than standard glass-film solar panels, which can lead to a 25% higher energy yield and therefore a shorter payback period. Own use of the generated energy or selling it to the grid, as well as the presence of charging stations, can further affect the payback period.

Can I see the solar carport in real life first?

A solar carport is a smart investment. But an investment. So you think about it carefully first. Maybe you have doubts and want to see the carport in real life first. We have a show model of both types of Solar carports at our own business park in Zwolle. Now you can come and see the wooden and steel Solar carports whenever you want. And do you have any questions? Then we will be happy to answer them. You are most welcome!

When to choose a wooden or steel carport?

Steel carports are extremely durable and strong, withstanding harsh weather conditions. They require less maintenance than their wooden counterparts. On the other hand, wooden carports are often considered more aesthetically pleasing, with their warm, natural look. However, keep in mind that wooden carports may require more maintenance. The cost is not the same either, ask an offer to find out more about this. In either case, Shift to Solar's carports are fully recyclable.

For which electric cars is the carport suitable?

The solar carport is designed with a universal charging function, making it suitable for all types of electric cars. This versatility allows owners of different electric cars to charge their vehicles worry-free and conveniently under the carport.
