Solar Green Roofs
The Crauderueff & Associates team has years of experience designing solar PV and green roof systems. In addition to our project experience, we have conducted extensive research regarding the integration of the two systems, and are familiar with various solar green roof products on the market. Although many of these products are used widely throughout Europe, we are prepared to adapt them for the context of the New York City area.
A solar green roof is a highly effective method of combining two green technologies into one efficient system. The green roof media can serve as a ballast for the solar PV structures. In addition, the green roof creates a more regulated microclimate on the roof (see graph), which in turn increases the output of the solar PV system.
