Design Considerations & Challenges

The customer had a limited amount of available roof space and a high energy bill. Standard commercial fire code setbacks would have drastically limited the available space for solar.

Western Solar worked with the City of Bellingham Fire Marshall to determine appropriate fire code setbacks for the building that enabled access essential to our fire fighters while enabling the customer to offset as much of their electrical bill as possible.
