ExtraMile Chevron Green Roof and Solar Panels. Woodburn, Oregon

Manning Design + Construction has helped both residential and commercial clients design, engineer and construct green roofs with solar systems throughout the greater Portland, Oregon region. We work with customers to maximize the capacity of their available rooftop square footage to accommodate a variety of rooftop solar solutions. From commercial rooftop solar arrays that augment and offset business energy costs to personal solar solutions that lower energy bills and increase household efficiency, we help our Portland clientele get the most out of their valuable rooftop spaces.

We install rooftop solar panels both covering and adjacent to green roofs. Constructed over a green roof, solar panels shelter plantings (increasing diversity), cool the roof below, and reduce irrigation needs. Built adjacent to green roofs, solar panels benefit from lower ambient temperatures. The combination of green roofs built in conjunction with solar arrays is beneficial to both the green roof and to the efficient functioning of the solar panels.

Like other rooftop construction solutions, rooftop solar increases structural loads and is subject to increased code compliance. With our 40 plus years of construction and contracting experience in the Portland, Oregon area we have knowledge of all applicable building practices and can help you navigate the complexities of safety requirements and structural load capacity regulations. We can manage individual project needs from conception and design to construction and maintenance.

Rooftop solar solutions provide great benefits to the environment, increase energy efficiency, and increase the value of a building or home. Over a residential living space or an adjacent garage, rooftop solar provides additional usable square footage. On commercial and/or institutional Portland area buildings, rooftop arrays help residents and business reduce energy costs and mitigate the use of fossil fuels and their impact on the environment.

If you have a rooftop solar, other rooftop development project, or just want to see how you can better utilize your rooftop space in the Portland metro area (including Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington Counties and beyond), contact us to discover how we can help you save time and money.
