Raising the Roof for Solar

Raising the Roof for Solar

02/26/2012 from TheSolarGazette.org The BRC/SolarForm Canada PV project resulted from the use of an innovative solar system designed to maximize solar production on a physically constrained commercial rooftop. It was built under Ontario Canada’s Green Energy Act and Feed-in Tariff program . The project began with a targeted production capacity of 250 kW on a site that was less than 35,000 square feet. The building was older and had been constructed in phases resulting in 3 different roof heights, numerous roof penetrations from previous and existing tenants and was very long and narrow with an azimuth of 135 degrees. The owner quickly realized that the production target could never be met with a traditional ballasted solar rack system due to shading and production losses related to area challenges and roof hardware. A raised solar rack system was proposed by the design tea...
