Green Roof Technology Becomes North America's Premier Supplier of Solar Green Roofs

BEL AIR, MD--(Marketwire - February 07, 2013) -  Green Roof Technology, a design and installation firm specializing in green (vegetated) roofs, announced today the completion of an exclusivity agreement with German green roof manufacturer Optigreen. Per the agreement, Green Roof Technology will become the exclusive North American supplier of the Sun-Root™ system.

The Sun-Root™ system is being hailed as the latest achievement in sustainable technology. The Sun-Root™ creates the first ever fully integrated Solar + Green Roof combination. The weight of the green roof holds the entire system in place, negating the need to drill into the roof membrane to support the solar panels. The cooling effect from the vegetation dramatically increases the efficiency and output from the solar panels.

"Partnering with the largest green roof supplier in the world is an outstanding accomplishment for our firm," states Jorg Breuning, founder of Green Roof Technology. "The North American market leans heavily on Germany for new and innovative green roof products and this agreement supports our vision to supply the market with high quality products at a competitive price."
