OneRoof Energy, Inc., a residential solar services provider and wholly-owned subsidiary of OneRoof Energy Group, Inc. recently announced that it has signed an agreement with the University of California, Riverside to work together to test next generation photovoltaic products.
“This initiative is designed to test next generation solar modules for their functionality under various real life conditions, quantify their benefits to the homeowner, and validate increased energy harvest assumptions,” commented David Field, President and Chief Executive Officer for OneRoof Energy. “Once testing is complete, we plan to add the new photovoltaic products to our solar offering portfolio representing what we believe to be the most cost effective durable solution for homeowners that increase energy harvesting from their solar system.”
Independent testing of the new technology will be performed by researchers at UCR’s Southern California Research Initiative for Solar Energy (SC-RISE), which is part of the Bourns College of Engineering’s Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT).
Dr. Alfredo Martinez-Morales, SC-RISE Managing Director, said the partnership highlights CE-CERT’s reputation as a trusted resource for the analysis of emerging technologies that are being developed to demonstrate renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainability. “Designing, testing and implementing a new technology for the real world is a complex process and we welcome the opportunity for our students and researchers to evaluate a market-ready technology,” Martinez-Morales commented.
