Please take our listener survey.
Installing solar PV on commercial buildings can significantly reduce electricity costs but it requires careful coordination with roof repairs and replacements. Today on the Clean Power Hour, experts from the solar and roofing industries advise facility owners and contractors on best practices for integrated solar roof projects. The speakers include Daniel Sammon from Douglass Colony, a major roofing and solar contractor in Denver Colorado, and Peter Bonavita from Sika Sarnafil, a leading roofing products manufacturer.
Daniel provides an overview of commercial rooftop solar - what it is, why it's becoming more popular, factors to consider like roof condition and ability to handle added weight, mounting system options, incentives, project timelines, and costs. He stresses the importance of coordinating roof replacements or repairs with solar installations to maximize solar panel lifespan. Daniel also covers special solar incentives for nonprofits and rural businesses.
Peter introduces Sika Sarnafil's innovative SSM solar racking system that integrates directly with their PVC roofing membrane. He explains unique benefits like not requiring roof penetrations, weighing only 3.5 lbs per square foot, and being included in the roof warranty. The system is FM Global-approved and easy to install. Peter also discusses retrofitting solar onto older roofs and the challenges of solarizing roofs over 10 years old.
This episode provides excellent advice for facility owners and contractors interested in rooftop solar. It covers technical considerations, financial incentives, project planning, and more. With strong federal tax credits and rising energy prices, now is an ideal time to go solar.
