YouthBuild Philadelphia students witness installation of solar panel system

Recently, three YouthBuild Philadelphia students visited the Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed North American headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania, to witness the assembly of three major components of a solar panel system—racking, solar module and the inverter—as a learning opportunity.

Saint-Gobain tapped two Chester County-based businesses to install the system—Alternative Energy Development Group (AEDG), based in Berlin, which served as the project developer and consultant, and Keares Electrical Consulting, based in Downingtown, which served as the electrical consulting firm.

The company’s decision to install CoolStar Solar Reflective Roofing and solar panel system from CertainTeed, coupled with its decision to install insulation from CertainTeed and electronically tintable dynamic glazing from SageGlass, led to the company earning LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for superior core and shell performance.

Since the company is not the building owner but has a long-term lease arrangement, ensuring the integrity of the roof was very important to both landlord and tenant. Saint-Gobain worked in close consultation with AEDG to deploy a solution that would ensure the roof integrity would not be compromised. As a result, the building serves as an example for how companies that are energy efficient and sustainability-minded can work together to move forward with a solar roof installation that has significant benefits for both building owner and occupant.

The company selected to install Solstice GreenTriplex PM250MO1 by CertainTeed Roofing. By installing this product, the company’s building scientists will be able to study the impact of the product which will enhance the development of other residential solar systems.

In addition to witnessing the solar installation, the YouthBuild students received a behind the scenes look at the installation process about how the system will impact energy savings and product development.
