PermaCity says it picked GAF because it could provide both high-quality roofing materials and financing for the project in the Port of Los Angeles. GAF will supply roughly 1.9 million square feet of EverGuard TPO, enough to cover 30 football fields. The single-ply thermoplastic polyolefin membrane, will be installed by Clark Roofing, a GAF Master Select Contractor. The EverGuard TPO will be topped with PermaCity's SolarStrap racking system. The solar system is expected to generate more than 700 million kilowatt hours of electricity over 25 years, enough to power 5,000 LA homes and the equivalent of removing 6,000 cars per year from local roads.
GAF's Solar Commercial Program offers resources for designing, financing and installing new solar systems along with a commercial roofing system.
