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

Solar can also be installed on roof coating systems as an innovative way to integrate solar panels onto commercial properties. The coating is durable and waterproof. Installation involves prepping and applying the coating, then attaching the panels with specialized mounting hardware directly to the roof.

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

Frequently Asked Questions about Commercial Solar and Roofing

Get answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) Solar & Roofing Services

Rooftop solar energy refers to the technology that captures energy from the sun and converts it into usable electricity. This technology involves the installation of photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roof of a building. The solar panels capture the sun's energy and convert it into DC (Direct Current) electricity. An inverter then converts this DC electricity into AC (Alternating Current) electricity that can be used to power electrical appliances, lighting, and equipment in the building.
Solar panels are typically made up of silicon cells that convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits the cells, it creates an electric field that causes electrons to move, generating a flow of electricity. This electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts it into usable electricity that can be used in the building.
Rooftop solar energy is an excellent investment for commercial property owners. It provides numerous benefits, including cost savings, environmental benefits, increased property value, and reduced reliance on the grid. If you're a commercial property owner looking to reduce your energy bills, decrease your carbon footprint, and increase your property's value, consider installing rooftop solar panels.
