Rooftop solar solutions

MAKING 100% EFFICIENT USE OF YOUR AVAILABLE SPACE

We work with all kinds of rooftop solar installations: industrial, shopping and school buildings.

Usually, roofs are unused areas so they can be profitable by installing a solar rooftop solution. Besides the extra income it helps fight the climate crisis by saving on energy bills. Rooftop solar installation has a simple and fast permitting period, being also easy to install and non-permanent in its installation. 

These solutions also help with the maintenance of the roof, by protecting it from the elements, such as rain, snow and high temperatures. 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.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT ROOFTOP PV SYSTEMS

WHAT IS 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. It is simple to install, as it requires few or no roof penetration and less weight than the full systems. However, it is only applicable for flat roofs after an advanced wind-loading analysis to avoid leaks.
WHAT IS ATTACHED RACKING?
This technique 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. It can be used on sloped or flat roofs, but 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, like the 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 installed by competent companies.
