Cal Trans, Altadena, wanted to go solar, but their open web truss roof wouldn’t support a PV system.  Solar Electrical Systems came up with an ingenious engineering design to support the new solar system, strengthen the roof, and add 3 inches of new insulation.  The Altadena numbers are impressive, also.  Rebates and tax benefits paid for 90% of the total cost, with electrical savings of $6,000 the first year, and lifetime savings of over $665,000.
