Our Mission

To provide high quality, long lasting solar shelter solutions that help businesses realise maximum return on investment - including carbon reduction and profit enhancement - by utilising existing carparks to generate renewable electricity.

Our Story

About Us

Recently part of Kensington Systems, Solspan® was founded on a simple premise: to provide the best quality solar carport solutions for UK companies and public sector bodies looking for a long-lasting solution that would guarantee return on investment.


Helping Businesses Achieve Net Zero Goals

With businesses increasingly under pressure from shareholders, staff and the government to demonstrate their commitment to achieve Net Zero carbon, many companies are looking for ways to reduce carbon emissions while also improving EBITDA.

Our high quality products and full project management combine to create a turnkey solar carport solution to supplement your company's energy use and by selling electricity to EV owners.

Sourcing & Sustainability

Solspan has achieved Planet Mark Business Certification as part of our responsibility to reduce our impact on society.

We are also committed to sourcing our materials as locally as possible, and work only with European manufacturers. While sourcing solar panels and other components from the Far East may seem more cost-effective, choosing to work with European products and manufacturers not only guarantees high-quality and longevity but significantly reduces transport emissions.

Who we help

Manufacturing, Retail & Commercial

A solar carport will generate renewable energy onsite to help offset your electricity costs and reduce your overheads.

Or provide customers and staff with a safe and dry place to park their vehicles while they shop, work or relax.

Public Sector

Install a solar carport to maximize your outdoor space, reduce your corporate carbon footprint and effectively meet your organisation’s crucial Net Zero goals.


Solspan® solar carports can be used to offset rising energy costs and deliver savings every year for distribution companies all over the UK. In addition, installing EV charging points along with the carport offers an additional revenue stream and may help to increase customer dwell time.

Transport & EV Charging Infrastructure

Generate significant quantities of clean energy to charge EV vehicles on-the-go at service stations and petrol stations, and boost profits.
