What’s a Solar Patio Cover?

A solar patio cover, also known as a solar powered patio cover, is a type of shade structure for your backyard porch that can provide your home with solar electricity. It’s usually attached to your home and is supported by 2 or more columns or posts. A solar pergola is the perfect for homeowners who cant install solar panels on their roof. Luckily you can use a solar patio cover in your back yard if you have enough space.

According to EnergySage, “Solar patio covers are part of an emerging category of solar that uses a structure other than the roof of your home or business as the framework for a solar system installation. These structures are often commonly referred to as “solar pergolas”.
