I am working on a project with rooftop solar panels planned. A portion of the solar panels will be initially installed during building construction, and the rest will be installed at a later time (i.e. after the building becomes operational). For SSc5, when calculating the total applicable roof area, should I only consider the area of the initial solar panels, or should I consider the total area of the initial and proposed future solar panels?
Also, just to confirm, "Total Roof Area" in the option 1 criteria (both equations 1 and 2) is actually referring to the total applicable roof area, which excludes equipment, solar panels, etc.
Thank you so much!
