Three PV roof projects with Johnson Controls

Solar Integrated Technologies, Inc, has been awarded contracts from Johnson Controls to supply and install BIPV roofing systems on projects in Wisconsin, California and Washington. The three contracts total US$3 million and are expected to be completed by the end of 2008.

One of the projects is planned for the Johnson Controls global headquarters building in Glendale, Wisconsin . The BIPV roofing project at this facility is expected to produce 116 MWh annually.

The Solar Integrated solar roofing system integrates a durable, low maintenance, waterproof membrane with lightweight, thin-film photovoltaic cells featuring Uni-Solar photovoltaic laminates. The laminates are supplied by United Solar Ovonic LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices, Inc.

‘Our strategy is to provide value to our customers across their portfolio of solar roofing opportunities. We provide solar roofing solutions that address the technical and levelized cost of energy requirements for the specific building and site profile,’ stated R. Randall MacEwen, president & CEO of Solar Integrated.
