CENTRIA recently signed a confidential letter of intent to sell EnergyPeak to
Metanna, a newly formed metal roof/solar integration company based in South Bend, Ind.
CENTRIA is an international company and the leading supplier of
architectural metal wall and roof systems for commercial, institutional and
industrial projects in the U.S. Its CENTRIA Services Group
division founded the EnergyPeak technology, which designs standards for
integrating photovoltaic (PV) laminates with standing seam metal
“The goal of CENTRIA Services Group is to identify and develop innovative
technologies for use in architectural metal wall and roof systems,” said Rick
Mowrey, Director, Business Development, CENTRIA.
“When we developed the
EnergyPeak technology beginning in 2007, our objective was to advance the
efficient and affordable integration of solar technology with standing seam
metal roofing. Having accomplished that, our next objective was to promote the
adoption of building integrated photovoltaic systems throughout the standing
seam industry. In the last few years we worked with the nation’s leading
standing seam manufacturers to make this innovative technology available to
building owners and architects. Metanna is the next logical step in this
innovative technology’s long lifespan and the best opportunity for its
widespread adoption, making affordable solar energy more available on
50-year-long life metal roofs.”
