Green roof solar for residential
Helping a family home go self-sufficient
When the owners of a family home decided they wanted to do their part for renewable energy transition, they used novotegra. Mounting solar modules on their rooftop let them generate their own electricity and start saving on energy bills.
Setting the scene:
In Buochs, Switzerland, a 120m2 house became the newest challenge for our design team. How could the site generate as much solar power, as efficiently as possible, within tight space constraints?
Meeting the challenges:
Space was one challenge, but the project also had to blend with the aesthetic look and feel of this striking contemporary property. Keeping lines of communication open between architects, installers, builders and everyone else working on site also took careful project management.
After successful installation of PV modules using novotegra, the property now produces 27 kWp each year. The residents can now rest assured that they’re doing more to protect the planet and secure a brighter future.
- A "green" roof not only in terms of vegetation, but with our green roof system also in terms of CO2 savings and sustainability
- Thanks to the high supports, the PV modules have sufficient distance to the greenery and due to the module portrait mounting, a high snow load is no problem
