Using car parks and other land into efficient, solar generation hotspots.
Our solar car ports are shelters for your vehicles which come in many different designs, and each is fitted with lightweight solar panels generating free, green energy for your business.

Inside 2 Outside Ltd have integrated 3 technologies: Solar PV, battery storage and electric vehicle charge-points to make solar carports a commercially viable reality. Solar Carports turn your car park into a micro power station.

The resulting “green” electricity generated can be used to charge electric vehicles via integral EV charge points.

Excess electricity generated can be used on site – significantly reducing existing costs and carbon emissions.

“Design and engineering excellence combined with great customer service is what makes the difference.”


  • Solar carports are deemed to be a capital expenditure and are generally self-financing.
  • Highly visible carbon reduction initiative – be seen to be green!
  • Increase the asset value of your business.
  • Reduce your existing electricity bills by using self-generated electricity on-site.
  • Generate significant additional income – from EV charge points and/or exporting excess electricity.
  • Reduce your corporate carbon footprint.
  • Future proof your property – the infrastructure is in place to add additional EV charge points as demand requires.
  • Increase customer footfall – customers will go where the charge points are!
  • Greatly improve customer experience – vehicles & occupants protected from the elements.


The T-Frame design has the advantage of minimum ground footprint. Vertical posts are positioned between standard 2.4m carpark bays with a typical 3 bay span. The double wing T-Frame mirrors the single wing T-Frame and features up to 6 bays spanned with only two posts. The T-Frame design is best suited to payed-for parking where the client will not accept any loss of bays and their associated revenue streams. The T-Frame is also suitable for multi-storey car park top decks as it can be fixed directly into the building columns.

VFrame Solar Car Parks


The V-Frame design features a lightweight and cost effective frame with limited footprint between parking bays of 1.2m. Vertical posts are positioned between standard 2.4m carpark bays with a typical 3 bay span. Vertical posts are all less than the width of bay markings (<0.1m) and so do not interfere with carpark usage. The double V-Frame spans up to 6 bays between columns. The V-Frame design is able to deliver our lowest-cost-per watt installation where project financials are the overriding design criteria.


The Portal-Frame design allows for full coverage of parking bays and isles. Maximum spans of 15.6m allow for standard bay-isle-bay spans to be covered. The TerraceSlope design is best suited to sites that require total coverage of the parking area, such as multi-story carpark rooftops or goods yards.

Tensile PV Canopies


TensilePV is best suited to architectural applications where new technologies and breakthrough aesthetics are the principle drivers. TensilePV offers a striking visual statement: lightweight large area coverage and organic translucent materials. The double wing cantilever mirrors the single wing cantilever and features up to 6 bays spanned with only two posts.
