A Very Cool Roof
The new, white “cool” roof and 22kW photovoltaic system on the Dole US Courthouse is complete! SFS in conjunction with Rand Construction, Derbigum Energy Innovations and e-PGEN designed and installed the system for the GSA as a High Performance Building Upgrade under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The system was implemented as an opportunity to generate energy as well as encourage renewable energy strategies in the Kansas City area.
Monitoring of the energy generated by the PV installation can be followed at www.deckmonitoring.com/dole_courthouse.
The information automatically updates every 15 minutes to show how much energy has been collected and stored by the system.
The project is one of the first GSA ARRA projects completed in the country.
