The company cites market research, which says there are approximately 4.5 billion square meters of commercial rooftop area in the United States and Europe. Less than 1% of commercial rooftops are being covered by solar panels. Because solar installations systems can be costly, many potential customers opt out on converting their electricity to solar.

Priced significantly lower than conventional systems that exist today, Pure Mechanics, Inc. will provide customers with solar products that will reduce labor, hardware, design and other balance of system costs. These products will also maximize the amount of electricity generated for a typical rooftop installation.
