Some property owners may also receive rebates from their utility company.

Green Roofs

Vegetation on green roofs can:

  • Absorb rainwater
  • Provide insulation
  • Combat the heat island effect (when urban environments are warmer than surrounding areas)

Installation Permits

The Department of Buildings (DOB) oversees solar panel and green roof installation permits and construction.
