SALT LAKE CITY, USA: John Ohlin, president and CEO of Gold River Productions Inc. (GRPS) reported that the company's patent pending technology of a monolithic, photovoltaic solar roof has been embraced by the SIP's industry.
"SIP stands for structural insulated panel which is an emerging construction technology particularly in commercial construction," Ohlin reported. "An Executive at SIP school and the SIP Association has been in extensive discussions with our CTO on how our patent pending PV roof will enhance the advancement of building projects within this market segment."
"The potential market for our patent pending monolithic, PV solar roof is huge. In the US alone in 2010, $2.4 trillion dollars of commercial and civil construction (the major market for our technology) is in the "post bid" phase," he reported.
"The roof portion of these projects is between 5-10 percent of the total cost, which means that the total available market for our PV solar roof equals between $120 billion to $240 billion in the US alone," he said.
"Our technology will allow solar roofs to be installed in 60' free span lengths, with an R value in excess of R-42. Photovoltaic solar cells, producing up to 13 watts of power per hour per square foot are integrated into the exterior skin of the monolithic, structural insulated roof panels," he stated. "At full production, our machinery will be able to produce in excess of one million square feet of PV solar roof panels per month; generating potential sales for AeroQuest in excess of $30 million per month."
