Firestone updates manufacturing plant

Firestone Building Products Co. LLC, Indianapolis, implemented its PLATINUM PV™ Program during the construction of its polyisocyanurate manufacturing plant in Bristol, Conn.

In 2011, the company received a clean energy grant to update its facility and used the funding to implement its PLATINUM PV Program to integrate photovoltaic (PV) systems with a cool roofing system. Through the program, concurrent life cycles between a roof and PV system are synced, allowing building owners to maximize renewable energy production and financial rewards. The PLATINUM PV Program is available in a variety of roof system types, including TPO, EPDM, SBS polymer-modified bitumen and standing-seam metal panel systems.
