Solar on a Municipal Facility

City of Boulder Police and Public Safety Building

A critical municipal facility with an aging roof, Unico Solar worked with the City’s facility staff to implement a long-term maintenance plan for the roof that would allow a solar installation. Likewise, coordinating with police, 911, and other critical City departments, a ballasted rooftop system – on a ballasted roof – was installed at no cost to the City. The system was designed around and in coordination with the facility’s rooftop communications equipment to ensure the City could gain access to low-cost, renewable energy without encumbering the facility’s primary functions.
