PHP Systems/Design (PHP), designer and manufacturer of high-performance rooftop pipe and equipment support systems, has added a solar panel mounting system to their comprehensive line of rooftop support system products this Fall to meet market demands and further ongoing commitment to sustainable building practices.
According to data from the Solar Energy Industry Association, the cost of solar has dropped 73 percent since 2006,resulting in a rise in solar installations for facilities across the nation. Additionally, recent global climate agreements involving the US indicate an upward shift toward solar and other clean sources of energy for the entire nation.
“The solar panel mounting system is a product we previously offered as a custom order option for our customers. After receiving great feedback from previous orders and installations, we are proud to announce that the PHP Solar Panel Mounting System is now re-introduced as a widely and readily available product for any type of rooftop solar installation project,” said Art Valentz, Owner of PHP Sytems/Design.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
