Spotlight on the Sun-Root™ System

Monday, January 28, 2013

Back in 2012, Green Roof Technology installed our first Sun-Root™ System in New York City.  The vegetation’s ability to cool the air increases the efficiency of the solar panels perched atop the green roof.

roofs with our Sun-Root™ System

This week the Sun-Root™ System has been highlighted in “Under Cover: Solar Vegetated Roofs Take Root,” a recent online article by Green Manufacturer.  The Sun-Root™ will also be in the spotlight in their January/February issue of the Green Manufacturer Magazine.     

Chicago, one of America's green roof leaders, is slowly falling behind in the technological race. Numerous studies have proven solar energy integrated with vegetated roofs are more efficient than either practice by itself. Chicago has yet to offer any incentives that include integrated solar green roof systems.
