The environmentally-conscious homeowner wished to have a greener approach to his power usage and to offset the energy required to run his home by supplementing with alternative, clean energy sources. In this case, solar was his choice. The home features a trapezoidal, exposed-fixed metal roof with a 7kW solar array mounted to the ribs of the roof using the S-5! PVKIT® direct-attach solar PV mounting solution and the ProteaBracket. The roof was optimal for solar due to its orientation, which receives sun from the morning all the way through to the evening, allowing the homeowner to maximize solar panel efficiency.
The S-5! direct-attach (rail-less) solar PV mounting solution along with the ProteaBracket provided the precise low-profile, aesthetic solution the homeowner desired, making it easier for installers than a traditional rail system.
