Solar Green Roof


Highview was thrilled to be a part of one of the first solar and green roof combination projects in New York City. Situated atop a private row house in Brooklyn, the 800 square foot green roof is complemented by a solar canopy system. Our clients enjoy the perks of a lush green roof while also benefitting from protection of the the solar PV shade. Highview selected a customized blend of sedum plugs that would withstand shade in some areas. With its ability to absorb stormwater runoff, harness the sun's energy, and create a habitat for local pollinators, this is surely the greenest roof on the block.
