SOLON Commercial rooftops

Project Development by SOLON.

Rooftops needed.

Rooftops are captial for their owners. But this captial does not get returns if the owner doesn't use it by installing a PV system. If an owner is not interested in running a PV system by him-or herself, you can lease your roof area to an investor

Common steps:
Installing a PV system on an industrial, commercial or municipal building places far greater demands on project development than home PV installations. Before a roof can be used to generate electricity, a feasibility study of the PV project needs to be conducted first. This study determines which roof types are suitable in terms of orientation to the sun, roof pitch, surface quality and, most importantly, load-bearing capacity. At this point the local utility company needs to be contacted to clarify the conditions for power feed-in to the grid.

A technical assessment will then be used to declare the roof ready for construction while a commercial assessment will determine the profitability of the PV system. If requested, we can also offer extensive services in project development. They include:

  • Feasibility study (grid connection test, review of general project conditions)
  • Yield estimates and return on investment reports
  • Structuring and arrangement of suitable financing and insurance solutions
  • Request for grid connection or grid compatibility test from relevant utility company
  • Dimensioning and planning of PV system (including yield analysis, design layout)
  • Structural integrity analysis (structural test of PV system, evaluation of roof load-bearing capacity)
  • Component recommendations based on customer requirements
  • Roof renovation - may prove advisable during PV system installation
    SOLON will help you choose a suitable combination of roof covering and photovoltaic panels
  • Integration of PV system in existing lightning protection system
