(#8157)Deduction of rooftop solar panel area from ground coverage in thermal envelope calculation.


Out of the total roof area of our project, 80% of it is covered with solar panels that reduce direct heat gain. Kindly clarify whether the area occupied by solar panels has to be deducted from the total roof area for thermal efficiency calculations of building envelope.


Overall roof area should be considered for thermal envelope peak heat gain calculations.
