Solar Garden Roof Study

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Solar Garden Roof Study and ROI

An extensive study about the fully integrated Photovoltaic and Green Roof solution is finally available in English. Green Roof Service LLC / Green Roof Technology performed excellent work that demonstrates all the features of a Solar Garden Roof and Sun-RootTM module.

Successful implemented on European projects over more than 5 years, the Solar Garden Roof can now catch-up in North America. “I am often wondering, why the American market is hesitating in regards of living green innovation,” says Jörg Breuning, "the savings or payback potential of green living technologies is in the US so much higher than in any other country of the world."

It is estimated that Washington, DC alone has a potential of over 2 Million square feet of green roofs combined with PV in the next 24 month. This could reduce the stromwater run-off by over 25 Million Gallons per year and produce over 26 Megawatt hours of electricity in only 12 month. Most of these smart rooftop solutions would actually payback in less than 5 years.

A bare roof with exposed water proofing has no payback.

Interested developer, architects and planners are welcome to visit two demonstrations projects – one in New York, Randal’s Island and another one in the DC area at Prospect Solar.

The system will be also presented at Cities Alive in San Francisco next week.
