PV and roofing: Bridging the gap


The key outcomes that the draft guidelines are aiming to address include: maintaining water-tightness and lifespan of the roof; ensuring that the photovoltaic installation does not compromise the roof’s warranty; reducing temperature impact on the roof system; allowing the roof to drain; and allowing safe access for maintenance and safety personnel.

To address these outcomes, a range of recommended actions and examples addressing each intention has been published in the draft report. The recommendations can be accessed here.

All comments on the draft report are to be submitted by Tuesday, January 31, 2012.

The second aim of the Roofing Center PV Taskforce is to bridge the gap between the roofing and solar industries and to increase communication between the two.
