Solar Integrated Wins BIPV Solar Roofing Contract for U.S. Navy

Solar Integrated Technologies, Inc. has won a U.S. $1 million contract from SupplyCore to supply and install a high-wind rated building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing system at a U.S. Navy base in the South Pacific. The project is expected to be completed in 2007.

“First, our product is able to meet the end customer’s requirements for a high-integrity and fully integrated flat solar roofing solution that can withstand the rigors of the strong South Pacific winds,” said R. Randall MacEwen, President & CEO of Solar Integrated. “Second, we are encouraged to be booking repeat business for U.S. federal government projects.” In 2006, Solar Integrated completed a $5 million contract from the United States General Services Administration (GSA) for the installation of a turnkey BIPV roofing system for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Murphy Federal Records Center in Waltham, Massachusetts. In 2005 and 2006, the company completed two contracts, totaling $4 million, from Honeywell Building Solutions to install a BIPV roofing system on the Base Exchange at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. This BIPV roofing system is expected to supply a significant portion of the building’s power demands, offsetting Luke AFB’s utility and rooftop maintenance bills for the next 20 years. “We continue to see growing interest by the U.S. federal public sector in our BIPV roofing systems,” stated Rob Campbell, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing of Solar Integrated. “This project marks our third flagship reference project for the U.S. government, further to our projects with GSA in Massachusetts and with Luke Air Force Base in Arizona.”
