View All Sessions

About this session:

As demand for renewable energy is increasing, photovoltaic (PV) arrays are being installed on roof areas more frequently. Proper planning can greatly reduce the potential for roof leaks, voided roof warranties, structural damage, and unnecessary expenses. This presentation will discuss evaluating the existing roof system and planning for the installation of a roof top PV system, selecting the appropriate PV system for the building, designing the PV system attachment to the building and roof, designing roof repairs or roof replacement in conjunction with the PV installation, maintaining the roof and PV arrays, and evaluating the costs associated with each phase.

1. Describe how proper planning when considering installing PV arrays can greatly reduce the potential for roof leaks, voided roof warranties, structural damage, and unnecessary expenses.
2. Identify the available options for PV systems and attachments, and roof manufacturer limitations.
3. Outline the condition and warranty duration of the existing roof system, the available capacity of the existing structure.
4. Understand life safety for maintenance, fire safety, and the appropriate coordination of the various tradesmen before, during, and after construction.
