One of the greatest ways to cut down energy costs for your business is through your building's roofing. Roofing, particularly in warm climates like here in Texas, has a huge influence upon the amount of energy used to keep a building’s interior a desired temperature. The hot sun beats down on the large area space of a commercial building’s roof and the solar energy heats the interior of your building.
According to the United States EPA, reflective roofing helps roofs absorb so much less heat that the roof will stay up to 50-60°F cooler than conventional roofing during peak summer heat. This drastic cooling effect is what helps cut the energy costs to a commercial building.
There are a myriad of options available to create reflective roofing for a commercial building, each one with its own pros and cons.
At Bronco Renewable Energy Solutions, we can handle any size project and no matter what type of commercial building you have we are confident that we can find an energy solution for your business.

Certain reflective roofing meets the EPA and the Department of Energy (DOE)’s minimum solar reflectance and reliability criteria. These products are labeled with Energy Star. There are even federal tax credits available for Energy Star qualified reflective roofs. Talk to our Fort Worth renewable energy specialists about the energy tax incentives available in your area.
