Solar Biodiverse Roof

Sempergreen Solar Biodiverse Roof 0-5 degrees

The Sempergreen Solar Biodiverse Roof is a special green roof system for flat roofs, which combines a green roof with a biodiverse mix of plants and the Sempergreen Solar mounting system. Nearly all kinds of PV panels can be placed on the Sempergreen Solar Stand. The green roof system acts as the ballast, providing the necessary weight to secure the solar panels on the roof.

This green roof not only increases the energy yield of the solar panels (with 6 to 20%), it also boosts the local biodiversity! Due to the variety of plant species in the Sempergreen Biodiverse blanket Sedum-herbs, the thickness of the substrate layer, and the fact that a solar panel can act as a shelter, the Solar Biodiverse Roof is an ideal haven for birds and insects.
