This fall, experts on the use of solar panels will present live information on how this technology can be used at self-storage properties to generate additional income, improve the environment and create greater consumer appeal.
On Sept. 21, Michael O’Bryant, regional manager for roofing contractor D.C. Taylor Co., will present a free webinar for self-storage facility owners titled, “A Solar-Ready Roof: What It Means and How to Get One.” The live online event will explain what a solar-ready roof is, options for solar-ready roofs, the importance of evaluating the condition of a facility’s roof before installing solar panels, and the benefits of installing solar technology. Registration for the event, scheduled for 2 p.m. ET, can be completed at MiniStorageMessenger.com.
Additional information about using solar technology can be obtained live at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 4-6, where experts will discuss the costs, financial incentives and benefits of installing solar panels to self-storage buildings and carports. On Oct. 5, Bob Hayworth, owner and CEO of Baja Construction Co., and Robin Heuer, a partner in Elevated Solar, will talk in detail about the use of solar panels, drawing on real-life case studies.
