Cities, counties and states are enacting regulations and building codes mandating the installation of solar PV or solar-ready design on new building construction, resulting in accelerated growth of rooftop solar. This session will discsuss the role of planning and design of new buildings with respect to solar optimization. This panel will explore the impact of solar installation and solar-ready mandates on the future of new building and roof designs, materials, electrical infrastructure, technological innovations and the design process itself, including a discussion on the solar zone, orientation factors and factors, such as shading, roof tilt, roof type and the structural capacity of a building.
