Rooftop Solar Systems Webinar - May 24 @ 1:00 pm

Hundreds of roofing contractors across the U.S. already have jumped on the solar bandwagon, making more money by up-selling solar systems with a reroof and differentiating themselves in the marketplace. But do rooftop solar systems make sense for you? For your company? Does the idea of adding solar systems take you out of your comfort zone because you don’t understand electrical issues?

Aaron Nitzkin, a solar systems and roofing industry veteran and founder and CEO of Solar Roof Dynamics, provides attendees with an overview of the solar industry followed by in-depth details as to why solar systems are gaining traction as an up-selling opportunity for successful roofing contractors.

Nitzkin pulls from his own experience of launching and running a solar division for PetersenDean, one of the largest residential roofing contractors in the country, as well as his experience helping roofing contractors go solar while employed at Dow Solar and at his current company, Solar Roof Dynamics.
