TESTIMONIALS

Universal Renewables installed a rooftop canopy to our Condominium building. This approach allowed two significant advantages for our relatively small multifamily building…great coverage, total panel area, because they didn’t need to work around the various us air conditioning units/heat pumps, but over them; and allowed for the bifacial solar panels to capture reflected light from the underside. All

this improves our electrical production and efficiency! That is, more kilowatts per total roof area. As a side benefit, the canopy approach provides shade protection to our roof and the related HVAC systems.
