Use Your Roof

Bay Localize


Bay Localize's Use Your Roof Guidebook is a straight forward compendium of resources and considerations to help you assess your building for the most appropriate green roof, rainwater catchment, or solar energy system. The Use Your Roof Guidebook is divided into four chapters that cover the key steps for getting started on your own rooftop project. It includes a basic discussion of rooftop gardens, rainwater catchment and solar power, factors for consideration, how to assess your building for a given system, best practices, and a comprehensive list of resources and information to inform your project. We hope that the resources and information contained in the Guidebook help you begin evaluating and deploying rooftop systems that provide you and your community with fresh, locally grown produce, seasonal supplemental water, and clean, renewable energy!  

The Guidebook can be downloaded for free at Bay Localize
