Infographic: The role cool roofs play in peak demand periods
No matter the climate in which a building sits, owners and managers probably are paying more for peak demand charges than necessary – a lot more.
Charges for peak usage can be 30 to 70 percent of a total commercial or industrial user's electric bill, no matter the base use, according to the Chemical Fabrics and Film Association – Vinyl Roofing Division.
Through roof material selection, building owners and managers have choices.
The infographic below, by the CFFA, looks at how energy demand increases bills, illustrating how two buildings in different climates can achieve the same peak savings, proportionately, with a cool vinyl roof.
