Hello Wrenches,

A client installed a beautiful white standing seam roof. Suddenly their 
air conditioning loads dropped way down.

We were planning to put an array on the roof, but she is concerned that 
the roof would become much hotter with dark colored solar modules over 

Is there any data on this issue?

Thank you,
