CEG financed the BIPV CoolPly system through a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Kraft Group. Under the PPA, CEG will own the energy assets and sell the electricity it generates on site to Patriot Place. The 525 kilowatt BIPV CoolPly power system on Patriot Place spans seven rooftops.


The system supplies one-third of the electrical needs of Patriot Place and will generate 12 million plus kilowatts hours of energy over the next 20 years.

Suppliers include Firestone Building Products and Evergreen Solar (NYSE: ESLR). Silktown Roofing Company, a SolarFrameWorks partner, installed the proprietary solar electric roofing system.


The state-of-the-art BIPV CoolPly system is elegant in appearance and innovative in function. The patent pending system simultaneously cools the roof and cools the solar modules in the summer. In the winter, the system provides additional insulation preventing heat loss while optimizing power production to promote optimal power production and energy conservation in commercial buildings.


SolarFrameWorks is a small woman-owned manufacturing business located near the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), a leading institute for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. SolarFrameWorks' CEO, Dr. Patrina Eiffert, a former NREL employee, is an internationally recognized expert in the field of BIPV, holds patents in photovoltaic technology.
