Rooftop Solar

for Commercial & Industrial Rooftop

Rooftop solar installations - making 100% efficient use of YOUR available space!

Universal Kraft offers a concept of solar production on all kind of roofs: industrial, shopping and school buildings.

Usually the roofs of industrial/commercial and even residential buildings are  unused areas. By installing a solar rooftop solution, the owner can have an extra income and high savings on energy bills, besides complying with the sustainability goals and help fighting climate crisis. 

As the renewable energy becomes now self-produced, as a result the rooftop owner gets in control of its energy bills and usage.

Rooftop solar installation has a simple and fast permitting períod, being also easy to install and non-permanente in its installation. 

This solutions also help to extend the life of a roof, protecting it from the elements, such as rain and snow, making this way the building more energy-efficient. Also during the summer, not having the hot sun beating down on the roof directly and instead absorbed by the panels, keeps the building temperature lower.

Traditional electricity is heavily fossil fuel based that besides harming the planet are also limited resources. This translates into a volatile energy market, in which we can see energy prices alter throughout the day.

Rooftop solar installations can boost the electricity independence! Protecting the customer against unpredictable increases in utility prices while enjoying cheap and clean electricity.

Universal Kraft has been working with this solution over the last years and offers both UPAC and PPA options on installing rooftop solar. That, in combination with storage, can also provide 100% clean energy production, for a 24/7 consumption.

Rooftop solar is an amazing option to decentralize energy at its core, providing a secure and clean energy source.

FAQ

HOW ARE ROOFTOP PV SYSTEMS MOUNTED?

rooftop solar

Ballasted Racking – This rooftop solar system uses heavy weights to anchor the solar systems on the flat roof. Some hybrid solutions use a combination of ballast and roof penetrating anchors to fasten it to the roof. The number of these depends on how much weight the roof can handle in terms of ballast, as well as on how much additional support will be needed to meet the wind load requirements.

Advantages: Simple to install; requires few or no roof penetration; hybrid-ballasted systems require less weight than the fully systems.

Disadvantages: Only applicable for flat roofs capable of supporting the ballast weight; may be needed more advanced wind-loading analysis; hybrid-ballasted systems have an increased risk of leaks. 

Attached Racking – Uses roof penetrating hardware to mount the rooftop solar systems on any type of roof. The number of required roof penetrations will depend on the roof structure, design, and local building codes.

Advantages: Can be used on sloped or flat roofs.

Disadvantages: Can be more difficult to install than ballasted systems.

WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS TO THE ROOF?

No negative impacts on a building usually occur when there is a correct installation process on solar rooftop systems. 

The usual building owners’ key concerns about these are regarding the potential impact that this systems may have on roof integrity (.i.e. risk of water intrusion or other damage), roof warranties, building permitting, and business operations, however, all of these risks can be mitigated or eliminated throughout the process when intstalled by competent companies.
