Solar PV Standing Seam
MT Solar PV Standing Seam roofing utilizes photovoltaic technology to provide energy to the building. The standing seam profile combined with the solar cells creates an eco-friendly solution for any building project. Because the paneling used is fabricated with sustainable materials such as zinc, this roofing application is ideal for use in green construction projects as well. The Triple Junction Technology makes it possible to harness the full potential of any available sunlight. Even if the sunlight is limited, the MT Solar PV Standing Seam is able to capture any available sunlight and convert it into power. For more information, visit www.metaltech-usa.com.
