PERTH AMBOY, N.J. - Englert Inc. announced the addition of Englert
Environmental, a provider of renewable resource solutions where metal roofing
and rainware systems play a critical role in collecting solar electric and
Environmental has partnered with key technology and service
providers including leading photovoltaic, inverter and mounting solution
providers and solar thermal suppliers to provide world leading, best-of-breed
technology, products and services to insure highest productivity, financial
savings and return on investment.
“Englert Environmental’s goal is to lead the development and
of integrated roofing technologies, now and in the future,
that can cost effectively reduce fossil fuel energy usage and air pollution and
better manage our dwindling water resources - all with an ROI to the customer,”
said Tom Dyszkiewicz, senior vice president of business development.
“Metal roofing by itself is the most environmentally sound
material - easily meeting standards of recyclability, reuse, manufacturing and
energy savings,” he said. “The key now is to stay abreast of new technologies
that work hand in hand with metal to set new levels of energy savings and cost
efficiency in a building.”
Through its strategic relationships, a single Englert
Environmental-sponsored project utilizing all of its metal roofing, rainware
and solar photovoltaic and thermal technologies can earn more than 15 U.S.
Green Building Council LEED credits.
Englert Environmental projects will also qualify for federal
renewable energy investment tax credits, state-specific financial incentives
including rebates, incentives, grants and state credits, accelerated
depreciation tax benefits, Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s) and net income from
electric power purchase agreements.
Environmental offers a building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV)
standing seam roofing technology that
works in conjunction with its metal roofing systems for delivering

state-of-the-art thin-film solar laminate called Uni-Solar from United Solar Ovonic, the
world’s leader in thin film solar technologies.
and highly flexible material easily integrates onto the surface of Englert
standing seam panels. When exposed to sunlight, these solar laminates produce
electricity, even in high temperature and cloudy environments. Electricity
generated by the laminates may be fed back through the electrical meter into
the power grid.
In addition to the PV laminate system, Englert Environmental
also offers an integrated solar thermal system mounted under its metal roofing
systems. The entire system is positioned between the attic roof and the outside
roof covering of a steep slope roof. Englert standing seam panels are a component of the solar collector,
heating purlins, which in-turn hold and heat a water/glycol mixture that is
circulated through the cross-linked polyethylene tubing.
roofing material will radiate heat after it reaches a certain temperature, the
system is self-regulating, preventing overheating and component damage when the
system is inactive for extended periods of time.
