The MIM installation represents the first US commercial installation of the lightweight, roof-integrated LPP 420 photovoltaic module. The LPP 420 was chosen as the safest choice in terms of long term functionality of the roof system while also providing reliable and efficient power generation.
“We wanted everything about MIM to be extraordinary in terms of beauty, functionality, and sustainability,” said Bill DeWalt, president and director of MIM. “ Lumeta's LPP 420 solar technology that we selected for our roof will most likely reduce our energy costs by 15% with no compromise to the roof integrity, ensuring MIM’s priceless collection has no risk of water damage. The low-profile LPP 420 modules will be invisible on our roofline, thus enabling our goal to blend into the landscape and be a timeless part of Arizona.”
