A Request for Proposals has been issued for the Photovoltaic Panel Installation Best Practices Review and All Hazard Assessment research project. Proposals should be submitted to Kathleen Almand by July 23, 2012, 5 pm EDT.
Photovoltaic panels are proliferating across the country as an alternative energy source. The installation of these panels on a roof may create a number of new fire and structural hazards. There have been a number of recent studies evaluating these hazards and recommending mitigating installation strategies.
The Foundation seeks a project coordinator to conduct a review of best practices for installation and an all-hazard assessment of photovoltaic panels installed on roofs.
The Foundation periodically issues requests for proposals for the conduct of research. To automatically receive notification of these requests, please e-mail Eric Peterson.
