Pf - Snow Load on Flat Roofs Subjected to Solar PV Array

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I sent you an inquiry via email to your Hotmail address but didn't hear back 
 from you so I'll try the SEAINT list.

Do you know of any studies that show that a roof mounted solar array can 
contribute to the accumulation of snow on a flat roof (i.e. less likely to 
get blown) such that the reduction allowed on the ground snow load for the 
flat roof snow load is unconservative?
