°Cool Roofs NYC: Service Day
WHEN: Saturday, September 17th
WHERE: Rooftop location TBD
TIME: 9am – 1pm
Join us as we partner with NYC °CoolRoofs, an initiative of NYC Service and Department of Buildings, to paint a white, reflective surface onto a black rooftop.
A reflective roof releases heat quickly, which combats the urban heat island effect and reduces a building’s interior temperature up to 30%. With a cooler internal temperature, air conditioning usage is lower and energy consumption, carbon emissions, and electricity bills are reduced. Additionally, a reflective surface prolongs the lifespan of both the roof and the cooling equipment by decreasing the thermal shock stress caused by extreme temperature changes.
