The solar industry is booming in India. The cost of electricity is rising and the threat of climate change is fast approaching. Moreover, the government is pushing the nation towards cleaner energy sources. As a result, businesses from many industries are turning toward solar systems to meet their energy needs.

To keep up with this diverse demand, solar companies are constantly churning out ideas and updating their technologies. The solar space is currently witnessing an influx of better designs and engineering that aim to maximize energy production.

Ornate Solar has introduced one such innovation in the form of the ‘Ornate InRoof’.

What is a Solar InRoof?

InRoof solar systems integrate solar panels into your rooftop. They generate higher amounts of energy than conventional installations and are aesthetically pleasing.

Large open areas such as industrial sheds, warehouses, as well as smaller areas such as rooftop restaurants, carports, corridors and pergolas etc. can benefit from a solar solution that has the ability to power the entire building along with functioning as a traditional roof. This way, InRoof systems can completely replace the need for all types of sheet roofing.

Advantages of Inroof

1. Waterproof

Waterproofing is the most important part of this type of structure. Since Inroof has to work as a traditional roof, they have to be completely leak proof. Even the smallest amount of seepage need to be concealed.

The InRoof system is fully waterproof as it is equipped with a double layer of protection.

The first layer is an aluminum top cover that prevents water from getting inside the shed. The second layer is made up of a galvalume MG shield that redirects the little water that seeped through to the gutters lining the corners. This water is moved down through a pipe system.

Coated with a special material, the structure itself is durable and rust-resistant.

2. Smart Design

The Solar InRoof looks good. It is designed to blend with the architecture while providing an overall premium look. Expect no panel racking or elevated mounting structures. Just a sea of blue enhancing the structural design of the building.

Moreover, InRoof is customizable. Ornate Solar has a dedicated R&D team to modify the structure according to your requirement.

3. Higher Energy Generation

The structure can accommodate 26% more solar panels than traditional roof mounted solar installation. With InRoof one can expect better space utilization, higher generation, and faster rates of return.

Moreover, since there is no tin sheet beneath the panel, constant airflow is maintained. Since energy generation is inversely proportional to the temperature in a solar system, InRoof eliminates the possibility of overheating. This in turn ensures better functioning of the solar panels.

Conventional solar installation involves mounting panels on elaborate structures while leaving spaces in between. The InRoof system eliminates this space. The solar modules are fixed closely together, creating a single seamless surface.

4. Cost Effective

Commonly, metal roofs are built before installing solar panels on top. This increases the overall cost. With Ornate InRoof, this additional cost of roofing is taken away. The integrated roof provides complete cover without any risk of heating the room.

Moreover, the structure is compatible with all types of solar panels and inverters. There is no need to limit yourself to specific brands and the decision can be made as per the budget.

5. More Sustainable

A tin roof is economical but has massive environmental costs. A corrugated sheet, used on rooftops, is made by bending tin metals through a corrugated machine. One ton of steel releases approximately 1.85 tonnes of CO2 into the air.

The solar roof, on the other hand, is an excellent investment. This solar solution will reduce your electricity bills drastically, while generating clean power. By reducing the dependence on non-renewable sources of energy, InRoofs help in lowering one’s carbon footprint.
