This project evaluated the feasibility of the installation of sustainable rooftop technologies on selected buildings at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). This report includes the structural analysis and design of three sustainable rooftop technologies: solar panels, green roofs, and solar collectors. These technologies have the ability to save energy, while contributing to WPIs sustainability plan. Additionally, an economic analysis is prepared to show the simple payback periods of installing these sustainable rooftop technologies.
