Residential PV Solar Panel Array, Skyline Drive, Portland, OR


When the family of this residence decided to implement a 15 kw PV solar panel array on their roof, Imagine Energy - a local solar panel installer - called on Miller Consulting Engineers to help them with the perplexing task of supporting and anchoring the roof-mounted panels to serve as awnings. Because of the large area of the roof that was being covered, the structural design for the support and anchorage was complex dealing with existing framing conditions to support the weight of the newly added PV array.
