  <dc:description>The rising price of fossil fuels, government incentives
and growing public aware-ness for the need to implement sustainable
energy supplies has resulted in a large in-crease in solar panel
installations across the country. For many sites the most eco-nomical
solar panel installation uses existing, southerly facing rooftops.
Adding solar panels to an existing roof typically means increased
loads that must be borne by the building-s structural elements. The
structural design professional is responsible for ensuring a new solar
panel installation is properly supported by an existing structure and
configured to maximize energy generation.</dc:description>
