Types of Commercial Roofs Suitable for Solar Panels
Roof and solar systems tailored to your building from the top-down.
When considering installing solar panels on a commercial roof, it’s important to consult with a qualified solar and roofing contractor such as BPi, to determine which type of roof is the best option for your building and solar panel system. Solar panels can be installed on several types of commercial roofs. These include low-slope flat roofs, which are the most common and provide an excellent surface area for capturing sunlight. Low-slope roofs with a slight incline are also suitable for solar panels due to their ability to handle heavy loads. Metal roofs are another durable and long-lasting option, and they are lightweight and easy to install on. It’s important to consult with a qualified solar and roofing contractor to determine which type of roof is best suited for your building and solar panel system.
Low-Slope Flat Roof Systems
Solar photovoltaics (PV) on low-slope flat roofs is ideal for commercial and industrial buildings with large flat roof surfaces. BPi uses racking systems that are mechanically attached using custom anchor assemblies and secured to the roof deck for a watertight installation. The roof’s reflective properties provide maximum energy efficiency.
Steep Slope Pitched Roofs
Solar can be mounted on steep slope pitched roofs, commonly found on multifamily apartments and some commercial buildings. BPi uses specialized solar racking systems that are attached to the roof system providing a flush mount solution that is secured and watertight to protect your property and occupants.
Metal Roof Systems
Metal roofs are ideal for solar due to their durability, stability, and reflective properties, which improve solar panel performance. Commonly found on manufacturing facilities and industrial plans. Panels and racking are attached using specialized mounting hardware directly onto the metal roof during installation.
Roof Coating Systems
BPi uses innovative Solar Modules & Equipment
Solar photovoltaics (PV) & bi-facial modules to maximize your energy.
We specialize in solar photovoltaics (PV) and bi-facial modules that can help maximize your energy output and save you money. One of the primary products we use is Solar SkyRack, which is a mechanically attached solar racking system designed for low-slope flat roofs. As a commercial property owner, you know that energy costs can be a significant expense. However, with solar PV technology, you can generate your own clean energy and reduce your dependence on grid power. Bi-facial modules are a particularly effective type of solar panel, as they can capture sunlight from both sides, increasing energy output by up to 10%+. Not only will investing in solar PV and bi-facial modules help you reduce your carbon footprint, but it can also increase your property value and provide a strong return on investment. Let us help you take the first step towards a more sustainable and cost-effective future.
Operations & Maintenance (O&M) of Solar Systems
Ensure your solar systems is operating at peak performance.
Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for rooftop solar is the ongoing upkeep and management of a solar system to ensure its optimal performance and longevity. It includes regular monitoring, inspection, and maintenance of the solar panels, electrical components, and other system components to ensure that the system is functioning at its best capacity. This involves checking for any damage, ensuring that all connections are secure, and removing any dirt or debris that may have accumulated on the panels. In addition, any necessary repairs or replacements are carried out to keep the panels in good working condition. Regular maintenance is important to ensure optimal performance and efficiency of the solar panels, as well as to extend their lifespan.
Roof System Maintenance & Repair
Maintain your manufacturer’s warranty and extend the life of your roof.
Find out how California Title 24 building energy code changes may affect you
We ensure your property meets Building Energy Efficiency Standards
California’s Title 24 is a set of building energy efficiency standards that apply to new construction and alterations of buildings in California. The standards are designed to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from buildings, while also improving indoor environmental quality. Title 24 has different sections, including Part 6 for energy efficiency and Part 11 for green building standards. These sections include requirements for building envelope insulation, also includes provisions for solar energy systems and cool roofs. Regarding solar energy systems, Title 24 requires that new buildings in California have a certain minimum amount of their electricity usage provided by solar energy systems. This requirement is designed to help reduce the carbon footprint of California’s building sector. Regarding cool roofs, Title 24 requires that buildings have roofs that meet certain standards for solar reflectance and thermal emittance. These standards are designed to reduce the amount of heat absorbed by roofs, which can help lower the cooling loads on buildings and reduce energy consumption. California’s Title 24 sets energy efficiency standards for buildings, and includes provisions for solar energy systems and cool roofs that are designed to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
