Location: Santa Cruz, CA
Project Type: Reroof Tilt-up Building and install Photovoltaic solar panel support stanchions
Size: 36,472 sq. ft.

Challenge

Central Coating’s first ElectroRoof┬« project, designed to demonstrate the synergy of integrating an SPF roof to save energy and a photovoltaic (PV) panel installation to generate electrical energy.

Solution

Stanchions to support the PV panels were installed on a new plywood deck and permanently sealed as the new SPF roof was installed. The PV installation not only generates electricity, it is a research facility. The performance of several photovoltaic arrays of different panel types, and panel tilt angles can be monitored separately.
