Photovoltaics generate electric power by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into electricity. Adding a solar electric rooftop system to your commercial business, industrial, institutional or government facility is an economic and strategic measure that will reduce energy costs, improve energy efficiency, reduce reliance on the struggling electrical grid and improve the value of your building. Solar power also protects the environment by using clean, renewable energy.
- Lower operating costs and become energy independent
- Receive federal, state and local government rebates and incentives
- Reduce highly volatile energy costs
In the case where a new roof is warranted, a solar integrated roofing system can be the most appropriate choice for photovoltaics. This type of system is comprised of thin-film solar laminates integrated with a new roof. As a turnkey solar installer with years of commercial roofing experience, Pfister Energy can complete the entire installation from start to finish.
The decision to go solar will have a direct impact on the type of roofing system that would be specified for a given building. That being said, if you’re going to be installing a solar system on your roof, one which has a life expectancy of 25+ years, then it is necessary to make sure that the roofing system selected is one that is going to be watertight for at least that long, in order to avoid having to remove/replace the solar array when the useful life of the roof expires.
Pfister Energy is a total solutions provider that is being recognized as a leader and innovator in solar.
