Roof-Integrated PV System
As a part of the US Department of Energy's PV Bonus Program and in collaboration
with the North Carolina Solar Center, Duke Energy, and the NC Alternative Energy
Corporation, Innovative Design developed two prototype roof-integrated photovoltaic
systems that, in addition to their electrical benefits, also incorporate thermal heat
recovery. After extensive testing at the NC Solar Center, the roof systems were
integrated into a new prototype Applebee's restaurant and a Central Carolina Bank.
In 1997, our unique PV/thermal system developed for Applebee's was featured on
CNN's "Science and Technology Week."
