Open Energy Corp., a Solana Beach, Calif.-headquartered developer of solar technologies, has received Underwriters Laboratory (UL) approval for its SolarSave Roofing Membranes.

The company's SolarSave Roofing Membranes are a building-integrated solar roofing system created for both new construction and re-roofing projects on commercial, industrial and residential buildings with flat to low-sloped roofs, Open Energy says. The system uses crystalline solar cells in composite material laminated under vacuum pressure to create lightweight, waterproof and fire-rated solar applications.

‘By receiving UL approval for our SolarSave Roofing Membranes on these additional substrates, we have significantly expanded Open Energy's potential applications in the commercial and industrial low-slope roofing market,’ says Don Rogers, Open Energy's executive vice president. ‘This is a very important advancement for Open Energy, and we look forward to successful partnerships with Seaman, DuroLast and IB Roofing in the manufacturing and distribution of this innovative renewable energy product.’
