Contractors and roofing installers, do you know your crystalline silicon from your photovoltaics?
If not, the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) says it’s time to gain a better understanding about residential solar system installation. That’s because the solar market is hot, thanks to growing nationwide interest stemming from California’s recent solar mandate for all new homes beginning in 2020.
As a resource to the trades, the MRA now offers an online 101 for solar rooftop installation that helps define key solar terms, outlines installation considerations, describes compatible roofing material types including various options, and offers design planning basics and other resources. It can be accessed through the organizations website at https://www.metalroofing.com/news/solar-market-is-hot-primer-for-solar-system-roof-installation/
