The solar car park company, turning car parks into renewable energy power stations
Why a solar car park?
3ti is the UK’s leading designer, installer, funder & operator of solar car parks. At 3ti we are passionate about renewable energy and believe that providing low carbon electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure is the key to decarbonising the transport sector.
Where better to do that than in a car park?
Solar energy from a car park is a low cost, low carbon and innovative way of powering businesses, including factories, offices, shopping centres and leisure venues. Combining it with a battery and local mains power allows 3ti to provide much needed EV charge points for customers, employees and guests.
EV charging in a solar car park
With around half of UK households unable to charge an EV at home, destination and workplace solar car parks are a cost effective, sustainable way of providing not only low carbon electricity but also charging infrastructure to support the switch to EVs.
Installing a solar car park to generate renewable energy and provide EV charge points facilitates destination and workplace charging in large numbers. This allows EV drivers to charge their vehicles whilst at work, out shopping, visiting a theme park or even at the gym!

Solar car park PPA funding
3ti funds the installation and operation of its solar car parks through a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), meaning that customers don’t have to commit to any significant capital expenditure.
The PPA fixes the cost of electricity for the customer with simple monthly payments for the power generated, delivering immediate savings, visibility of future energy costs and securing long-term energy supply.
