U.S Government and Public Building Rooftops
Solyndra offers a Made in USA solution for local, state and federal government building owners interested in meeting ARRA funding requirements. Choosing Solyndra products promotes job creation in the United States as our products are manufactured in California and we rely on a predominately (more than 60%) U.S. made supply chain. Rooftop solar is increasingly viewed as a critical element of meeting renewable energy goals and those for national energy security. Our systems are ideally suited for “cool roofs” and their conservation benefits. Solyndra has a network of energy service company (ESCO) partners with long experience working with local and federal governments on projects of many sizes. Solyndra systems are on rooftops on U.S. military installations, colleges and universities, public and private schools and many other public buildings.
Real Estate Investment Trusts
Rooftops are a great source of income for the commercial property owner and there are unique tax advantages for using Solyndra systems. Lightweight panels work well on rooftops not designed to carry a heavy load and our systems are easily moved should the building have an ownership change.
Rooftop, distributed solar generation is the best solution to achieve renewable portfolio standard (RPS) goals. A hedge against future price uncertainty, rooftop solar also eliminates the need for costly transmission systems required by desert or remote ground mount systems. Solyndra’s industry leading balance of systems cost enables low LCOE on the rooftop. Working closely with utilities and our partners Solyndra offers turn-key rooftop solutions. Solyndra has worked with Southern California Edison, PSE&G and other utilities in the U.S. and around the world.
Distributors, Roofers, Energy Service Companies, Developers and Integrators
Solyndra systems are ideal for rooftops with weight restrictions, roofs with many contours, off azimuth roofs and roofs where penetrations due to mounting are a strong concern. With a rooftop load of only 2.8 lbs/sq ft., Solyndra enables projects on rooftops with weight restrictions.
Roofers find that a white membrane is an integral part of a Solyndra system and offering Solyndra in conjunction with a white membrane gives roofing suppliers and contractors the ability to offer their customers with a total rooftop solution, conservation and power generation. Solyndra systems are non-penetrating and don’t affect most rooftop membrane warranties ensuring your new roof and your solar system are good for 20 years or more of life.
All customers benefit from the fast installation times of Solyndra systems- up to 3x faster than other systems- whether it is the minimal business disruption of an installation or the ability to complete more projects during good weather months.
