Why Baja builds Baja Carports?
We get asked a lot; How’d we get into the business of building carports? In 1981-1982 in the mist of the recession and widespread unemployment affecting the construction field, Bob Hayworth and Luis Fabian built structures that other general contractors considered a risk to spare their labor force on. To make a long story short, in 1981 the partners established Baja Construction and built mainly mini-storage businesses that provided outdoor covered vehicle spaces. It was a living that led to their niche – carports. But still, it wasn’t until the innovation of solar modules and the panels capability to produce significant power that led to Baja Construction expanding the Baja Carport product line to include Solar Support Systems™.
Dedicated Carport Specialist
At Baja Construction we understand that we are in a unique market and have a niche product line. It’s for this reason, we have dedicated ourselves to the continuous innovation of structural steel design. We empower our design engineers with the best steel material to create the best steel mainframes for solar and non-solar canopies in the industry. Baja’s in-house engineers are committed to designing with steel and working with the top solar photovoltaic module manufacturers in the world to gain peak power performance and maximize coverage for Baja customers.
Baja Solar Carport Installations have Increased
In 2017 Baja Construction experienced its best year ever. Our Baja Carport product line saw an increase in request for custom designed and engineered Solar Support Systems™. Our customers are coming to us educated on renewable energy. We are witnessing businesses, corporations, and organizations of all sizes, covering their parking lots with solar carports to offset the cost of their electric bill; ultimately becoming their power producer; achieving a zero-energy building status. [Meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the property.]
These same customers are anticipating the economy’s popularity in electric vehicles. Our customers want to be accommodating to their employees, guest, and customers. As do we with them. It’s a company-wide effort at Baja to find cost-effective solutions in design, engineering, supply, and installment without compromising quality. We’re aiming to have another banner year in 2018! Solar modules are more affordable than they’ve ever been, and the technology in them is only getting better, there is no reason for Baja not to increase its solar carport installations.
“Someday, I wouldn’t be surprised if the building industry saw another guidance standard set; to the liking of ADA compliance. Whereas; every public parking lot must have “X” amount of handicap spaces, it must also have “X” amount of solar covered parking areas or “X” amount of solar covered spaces, and pathways – depending on its footprint.”
