PORTLAND, Ore.—When it comes to sustainable building practices, solar is hot.
With the availability and interest in residential solar systems growing rapidly nationwide, it’s important for builders, contractors and installers to know the fundamentals and brush up on best practices to help homeowners make informed decisions.
To that end, the Metal Roofing Alliance is hosting a free “Residential Solar System Installation” webinar in partnership with Green Builder, covering design techniques and advanced rooftop installation considerations to help optimize the return on residential roof-mounted solar systems.
The webinar will be held Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. EST. Free registration sign up is available https://www.greenbuildermedia.com/residential-solar-system-installation.
The webinar will feature noted author, presenter and expert Todd Miller, president of Isaiah Industries, who has spent his long professional career in the metal roofing industry, including providing expertise, ideas and guidance to hundreds of homeowners planning for solar installations.
“Driven by California residential solar mandates coming in 2020, residential solar systems are becoming more mainstream nationwide,” said Renee Ramey, executive director of Metal Roofing Alliance. “To capitalize on the opportunity as well as to help guide homeowners during the planning process, it’s important for the trade to understand the essentials for residential rooftop solar installation.”
Contractors and roofing installers also can find the primer for solar rooftop installation on MRA’s website at www.metalroofing.com, in addition to information about how to become a MRA member and gain access to other education and training related to a wide variety of metal roof topics.
