    Thanks, Jim.


    Not bad, I suppose.  But see all that "roof" you have to build under those things just to support that "roof?"


    I am visiting with a custom manufacturer tomorrow, and bringing my "wish-list" up to date. 


    Phil's fantasy spec is something that just screws down to a frame -- any frame -- wood, steel, aluminum, not the silly install track that every dink tries to out-do-each other with.


    Probably would not even have to have an aluminum frame.


    I am thinking if a crew can just unload R-panel from a truck and screw a metal roof down -- why not  a PV roof that works the same way?


    No plywood, no deck, no shingles, no metal panel(s) -- why pay for that twice?  acts as a radiant barrier, and is a 25 year (+) roof. 


    btw, I put this on NTREG, as well , but did not see it come through.  Is NTREG working properly?

    the closest thing to BIPV we've done is at that Glen Rose install you work on in '06 with us. We went back and put up clear-backed PV in the greenhouse roof several months after the inital install of the trackers etc was finished.

    But I suspect that you are looking for something like this....

    Anyone know anything about or have used what are in more-formal-terms called Building-Integrated-Photovoltaics?

    Particularly asking about using Solar Panels as roofing panels.

    Not so much where the PV is On the Roof, but rather where the Solar PV IS the roof?

    for examples >>>
