Can anybody explain to me the benefits / difference between using a ballasted mount vs a standard on a roof with a 15% pitch?

 

I'm talking about these two IronRidge products: IronRidge standard rail  vs IronRidge Ballasted Roof Mount

 

Thanks!

“Since January 2013, 11,000 solar panels and 14 wind turbines have been generating power at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles. The team’s 10-year-old “Go Green” campaign also includes reduced water and electrical use, recycled paper products for all tissues, conversion of cooking oil into biodiesel fuel, a digital version of the cheerleaders calendar to spare trees and compostable packaging for the hot dogs and Philly cheese steaks.

 

Signs in the men’s rooms at Lincoln Financial: “Recycle your beer here and your plastics outside.” Among other signs at the stadium: “The only water we waste is sweat.”

Here is another one from my hometown.

 

Metlife Stadium, NY Jets & NY Giants

The BIPV panels, installed in 2012 produce about 25 times the energy needed to power the stadiums most prominent feature, a glowing ring of LEDs that circles the entire stadium. The ring atop MetLife Stadium consists of 47 sections and about 1350 total panels. The panels are what’s called building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).The excess power produced goes “into the general stadium use or back to the grid.”

 

AT&T Park, San Francisco Giants

AT&T was one of the first parks in professional sports to embrace solar power and “green” event practices. Their current array can power the giant high definition scoreboard 40x over and the famed McCovey Cove boasts an additional solar array which pumps power back into the San Francisco electric grid.

Very useful information!
