Designing and Building "Solar Ready" Seminar - EmPower Solar

Designing and Building “Solar Ready” Seminar

On Friday, April 28, local policy makers, and members of the Long Island building and design community came together to discuss a growing trend in new construction: building “Solar Ready”. Given ever rising energy prices and environmental concerns, demand has grown for more sustainable and energy efficient construction. Solar Ready principles help guide architects, engineers, and builders on how to design a building’s roof in a way that would allow for maximum energy production either from initial solar panel installation or future adoption. Some municipalities including the Town of Brookhaven have already adopted Solar Ready building requirements.
