My home in North Texas has a reflective standing seam metal roof. Last year my wife contacted Solar City about solar panel installation on our house. They were all up for it until she mentioned we have a standing seam metal roof. Suddenly they're referring to some rule or law that prevents them from installing their panels on this type of roof. That makes no sense to us, as standing seam metal roofs are ideal for solar panels, being there are no penetrations required through the roofing material to hold the panels fast to the roof. I have searched extensively online for any Texas code, statute, etc. that Solar City might be referencing as to why they're balking at our roof choice. Solar City calls us every six months to see if we're still interested, and as soon as we mention the metal roof their enthusiasm dies off. Last time I had the guy on the phone I asked him to ask his boss what source they are relying on for this decision and there was no verdict. Texas is a HUGE market for solar, and more of us are waking up to the fact that asphalt shingle roofing is a stupid choice in a hot climate, where the shingles soak up heat all summer long, punctuated by severe storms with hail any time of the year. We have stock in Solar City but are disappointed they won't service one of their stockholders with their product citing reasons they can't justify with Texas law or building code. Has anyone heard of this, or know of any similar experience either in Texas or elsewhere?
