Energy Cost Analysis of a Green Roof and Photovoltaics System on WPI's Future Recreation Center Public

Green roofs are new roofing technology that use vegetation to cleanse the environment, and photovoltaics directly produce electricity from absorbed sunlight. This study determined the economic feasibility of installing photovoltaic and green roof technologies on the roof of the new recreation center at WPI and found an economic balance between the two technologies. Due to the cost benefit and pay back period analyses, the green roof system would be the more beneficial technology for the future recreation center at WPI.
