Flat Roof Mount Tilt Up Design
An increasing number of PV systems are being installed in flat roof residential and commercial applications across the US. While low pitch roofs are very often a dream installation site for many solar integrators, they present a number of design and installation challenges: valleys and ridges for drainage, the drains themselves, vents, exhaust fans, rooftop units, curbs and parapets.

S&R Solar Design takes into account all the above consideration during the design process. 
The Tilt-Up system allows solar arrays to be tilted to an optimum angle.
Flat Roof Mount Solar Canopy Design
S&R Solar Design is the leader in rooftop solar canopy design systems.
Urban rooftops aren't just flat, open spaces. They often are covered in vent pipes, hatches, skylights and more, and in New York City, fire codes require a six-feet-wide and nine-feet-high open path on every roof. That means that solar panels have to fit in what little space is left.
S&R Solar Design approach is to incorporate solar panels on rooftops to resolve concerns such as shading, fire code regulations, rooftop obstructions, and wind and snow loads.The canopies also angle the panels over flat city roofs so that they also get the most sunlight.

The Solar Canopy allow homeowners to save considerably in energy costs. 

Ground Mount Solar Design
We can help installers with ground mounts solar design and installation.
Every site is unique, and every mount design will be, too. For example, an array located in an area that receives heavy snowfall should have ample ground clearance so that snow can slide off, accumulating below without shading the modules.
In addition to site-specific considerations, the tilt angle of the array is a key factor. While adjustable legs are a common option with many ground mounts, it isn’t nearly as easy as adjusting a pole-mounted array. Most pole mounts are balanced and have a single point of tilt adjustment, which a person can handle alone.   
The engineering and testing that go into manufacturers’ designs take the guesswork out of ground-mounting a PV array, and the end result is likely to be cheaper, sturdier, longer-lasting, better engineered, and quicker to install than a homemade rack.

Ballasted Solar Design
Ballast mounts rely solely on the weight of the array, racking system, and additional material, like concrete pavers, to hold the array to the roof. Their biggest advantage is the lack of roof penetrations. This can significantly reduce the coordination required between the roofer and the PV installer. Ballasted systems need to be carefully analyzed due to the increased roof loading imposed by the array.
S&R Solar Design can assist you with ballasted system design on the flat roof by assessing existing structure and running calculations.
We also note the areas that should be free of solar due to shading, drainage, fire access, etc
