This system was installed on a standing seam metal roof of a farm in West Kingstown, RI. This section of the roof faces south-southeast.
This 57-panel installation has been used to cover the electricity expense for the entire farm in addition to the adjoining residential property.
Unique Factors and Challenges:
This installation was large and required additional up-front engineering work. In addition, the standing seam metal roof required a unique attachment system that pinches the standing seams rather than penetrating the roof into the rafters.
Beyond receiving the RI Commerce Corporation Grant, the owner was eligible to take advantage of MACRS depreciation of the commercial asset.
