Installation – Karachi , Pakistan
Basically, places in urban areas offered inadequate space for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. This is due to the unavailability and high cost of suitable places. Therefore, in most cases, the preferred location for the installation of solar PV systems is the rooftops of buildings. Conversely, the buildings’ geometrical nonuniformity makes it difficult to harness solar energy due to the shading of nearby areas. In urban areas, car parking shades are vital places for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in industrial, commercial, and educational places.
The geographical location of Pakistan is that it has a maximum duration of daylight or solar radiation that is sufficient to generate solar energy. This duration prolongs up to 8.5 hours per day.
The usage of a solar panel-based rooftop keeps increasing nowadays according to the data obtained, but still, their usage for car parking shades is still uncommon. It is highly desirable to exploit the usage of PV technology to intake maximum solar energy over low-cost land and site preparation.
