    Maximizing Rooftop Solar

    in Energy

    Join TalkSolar host Beth Bond as she interviews Ralph Velasquez, NewWind out of Nashville, Tennessee about their new way to maximize solar on your roof.


    Ralph has been involved in the roofing and building industry since 1978 and renewable technologies since 1999 .In his career, he has re-roofed millions of square feet in the Industrial, Commercial, Institutional and Governmental sectors all over North America. His passion for sustainability was formed from his early ideals of stewardship, minimalism and legacy, sharpened by five years in the late 80's and early 90's, working in sub-sahara Africa.


    Ralph is one of the industry's early innovators in the green roof industry. He developed the GreenSave calculator, the green roof industry's first financial benefit calculator and was part of the ASTM sub-committee that wrote the first five national ASTM standards for green roofs. He completed the first ever green roof installation on a Presidential Library, with the completion of the William Jefferson Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2008 and an award winning design on the National Institutes of Health, in Bethsesda, MD  Involved in distributed solar since 2008, Ralph developed over 3.5 mW of rooftop solar during the throngs of the great recession, from 2008-2010, 


    From 2010-2012, Ralph was the Executive Director for Sustainability for a global roofing manufacturer, responsible for all policy and strategic sustainability initiatives, world-wide. In late 2012, Ralph, along with his wife, formed Ark Investments to focus on micro investment opportunities in sustainability, in rural and local communities. To date investments have been made in sustainable animal husbandry, music and land development. Earlier this spring, Ralph joined NWES, as the Sr. Director of Business Development to again pursue the idea of rooftop solar, this time with a ROI financial focus.
