Roof mount solar power systems are a popular choice for municipal governments, commercial and industrial facilities, school systems and universities. Building rooftops are an often overlooked space with enough room for large solar arrays.
Depending on the available roof area and your usage profile, you may be able to generate 100% of the energy you need through solar power. In some locations, excess power can be sold back to the electrical grid, potentially turning rooftops into revenue.
Ameresco offers Solar PPA financing and complete design, build own and maintain services, allowing building owners to go solar without up-front investments or additional expenses. Rooftop solar systems can be mounted using ballasts, which do not disturb the roof surface, or traditional rooftop mounting systems.

City of Melrose
Ameresco developed several plans to add solar power to school roofs. The final project was chosen to deliver the lowest solar PPA price to the City of Melrose.
Arizona State University
ASU made extensive use of rooftop solar panels on its stadium, arena and campus buildings to help achieve $8 million in annual energy savings.
Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport
It’s Minnesota’s largest solar energy project to date, and further efficiency will be gained with lighting enhancements.
