Why choose between going solar or building a green roof, when you can have both? Integrated Solar Green Roofs are a tidy package.  Or build a green roof under your existing solar canopy. Either way, have your cake and eat it too: enjoy a green oasis while also slashing your energy bill.

What is a solar green roof?

A solar green roof is a green roof which has integrated solar panels. Solar panel supports are held down by the weight of green roof layers, eliminating the need for anchor points penetrating your roof. Due to the cooling effect of green roof plants underneath, solar green roof panels produce up to 16% more electricity in the summer than standard rooftop solar systems.

There is no denying the surge in demand for rooftop solar electric systems.  The same is true for green roofs as city dwellers are demanding access to nature and energy efficiency upgrades for their buildings.  Integrated solar green roofs give all the benefits of both technologies.  Plus, each technology boosts the performance of the other. Many building owners are cover their entire roof with greenery; one-half of the roof is then covered in solar panels and the other half is used as an amenity space for residents.

You want rooftop solar to eliminate your electric bill, but you also want an amenity space that boosts every day quality of life and property values. With an Urbanstrong solar green roof, you can have the best of both worlds, and more.  We will work with you to design a system that fits your budget and improves your lifestyle.  Just ask us.
