PV Project Thermography - Comparison (5/7/98)

Roofs in the Afternoon

This comparison of the roofs needs virtually no explanation. The white tile roof of the PVRES house is clearly cooler than the dark shingles of the control house. Notice the red/orange/yellow roofs of the other houses in the neighborhood to the left and the right of the PVRES house.

The temperature range is from 51°F (darkest colors) to 140°F (lightest colors).
