Live Oak Business Park 2003
Project Name: Live Oak Business Park
Location: Santa Cruz, CA
Project Type: Reroof Tilt-up Building and install Photovoltaic solar panel support stanchions
Year Completed: 2003
Size: 36,472 sq. ft.
Challenge: Central Coating's first ElectroRoof® project, designed to demonstrate the synergy of integrating an SPF roof to save energy and a photovoltaic (PV) panel installation to generate electrical energy.
Solution: Stanchions to support the PV panels were installed on a new plywood deck and permanently sealed as the new SPF roof was installed. The PV installation not only generates electricity, it is a research facility. The performance of several photovoltaic arrays of different panel types, and panel tilt angles can be monitored separately.
