Green Roofs Make Green Sense
Over the l Members of the BIA-Hawaii Remoders (BHR), the ast few years, many homes and commercial buildings have renovated their roofs with Photovolatic Energy Systems (PV).
Living or working in an environment with a green roof is a satisfying choice because we are choosing to become more environmentally responsible citizens.
A PV roofs saves money for owners and managers every month by transforming your roof into an asset that provides energy-efficient homes and workplaces.
In fact, PV roofs alone will save Hawaii millions of dollars in deferred energy consumption.
Besides spending less money every month on your electricity bill, you can take advantage of the federal and state tax investment credits.
For commercial buildings, Built-In Photovoltaic (BIPV) roofs can work the best.
However, even with tax credits, the purchase and installation of a BIPV roof can be costly.
We provide solar energy financing for this which assists our customers tremendously.
So whether it’s a BIPV or a PV roof, as long as the sun continues to shine, you can have a risk free, lower cost source of predictable energy.
