Westinghouse Solar Inc., a designer and manufacturer of solar power systems, has released a new lightweight, non-penetrating flat-roof solar power system designed for commercial rooftop projects.
Westinghouse Solar says it has combined its new 235 W solar panel with a new lightweight, aluminum and stainless steel flat-roof mounting system. The system is non-penetrating, thereby reducing the possibility of roof leaks and preserving roof warranties. The system also has been aerodynamically designed with extensive wind tunnel testing to resist high winds, thereby minimizing the ballast weight necessary for the system, the company adds.
The total system weight is 2.7 lbs. per square foot, making the product suitable for virtually all commercial rooftops, according to the company.
The product is available for order in the U.S. immediately, with availability in Europe and Asia during the third quarter.
