Sheds for Solar Equipment

Some solar equipment, and most batteries, cannot be placed outdoors without protection from the elements.  The single most important thing solar owners can do to increase the lifetime of solar equipment is to shield them from excessive heat and moisture swings; a solar shed can help in both areas. Sunnycal sheds come in various formats to suit customer preferences.

            • Freestanding wood-framed sheds
            • Lean-to wooden sheds
            • Freestanding metal sheds
            • Lean-to metal sheds

Security of solar equipment is greatly improved when it is out of sight, inside a locked building.
