Description: This feasibility study is for the placement of solar thermal panels on the Cobb Parking Deck. The study is to include notes on which structural elements affect the building’s capability of supporting solar panels, and if possible, a generalized explanation as to what structural elements we should look for in determining the potential of other buildings for solar panels. The study found that it was not financially feasible to place a solar thermal system on Cobb Parking Deck.
