Both the photovoltaic (PV) power generation and the Metal Roofing Industries are growing with promise. They appeal to popular “green” objectives, while also pointing to durability, fiscal responsibility, longterm ownership, low carbon footprint, effective life-cycle cost, and sustainability.
Metal roofs from Rigid provide the perfect hosting platform for photovoltaics, producing an economically viable and environmentally friendly energy solution. Due to their longer service life, low maintenance costs, and energy efficiency, metal solar roofs are proving to be one of the most responsible and lucrative sustainable energy opportunities, accelerating both in demand and efficiency. Because the installed cost of PV on metal is so much less than on conventional materials, the total cost of a metal solar roof (with new construction) means that, for the first time, a new metal roof can legitimately claim to be less expensive than a conventional roof. Furthermore, metal roof surfaces allow penetration-free attachment of PV systems and wire management, protecting the roof’s integrity and warranties.
Rigid Global Solar offers three different solution programs to suit the varied needs of our contractors and architects and their customer bases.
MicroPower Kit (.7 – 60kWp)
PowerChoice (60 kWp – 1MWp)
PowerPlus+ (250+ kWp)
Each program has a slightly different model and scope of services based upon the size of the PV system. For larger systems a broader scope of services is offered.
Rigid has all of the materials, technology and experience to pair a variety of PV options with any metal rooftop, available at prices sure to please. From project and site assessments to system design and project management; to arranging financing to obtaining federal and local incentives, and, in some cases, even complete installation management, Rigid works hard for you.
