Don’t let your green roof stop you from installing a solar energy system
With more and more cities around the world changing the building code and regulation to better adapt to the climate conditions. The cities must combine green roofs, systems for delaying water and energy production to conform to the new expectations. Green roofs are also beautiful and gives increased biodiversity and lower temperature in cities during hot summer days. With conventional solar panels, you must combine different approaches, with sections of the roof dedicated to green roof or solar systems that’s combined with a setup to delay water below the PV-modules. The Over Easy approach is different!
Using the Over Easy Solar unit you can combine your green roof 100% with a solar energy system. The lightweight PV-Units from Over Easy Solar can easily be put on top of sedum roofs without limiting or changing the function of the green roof itself. You have easy access to inspect, maintain and if needed repair the roof. For the green roof itself, the benefits of vertical solar panels are obvious: The plants get access to rain and sunlight for natural humidity variations and evaporation, and the rooftop is 100% accessible for birds and insects.
Energy yield from vertically mounted bifacial solar panels More energy in the morning and in the evening with V-bifiGet two energy production peaks each day rather than one with east-west mounted V-bifi units from Over Easy! Mounted so the sunlight hits the panels on the east side in the morning and on the west side…Keep reading
24 hours of solar power! Imagine if a solar power installation could produce electricity 24/7! This week at our research installation in Tromsø, Norway we had 24 hours of continuous production, taking advantage of the midnight sun! At one of Posten Norway’s distribution centers, we have commissioned a research installation with 14 Over Easy’s patent…Keep reading
