I agree with this. When we were doing the construction of my house in Lincoln, I had a little chat about this with the roofing contractors (Omaha-based). They said some of the residential houses they serviced were asking about the green roofing and its benefits. I believe they said it's more conservative and natural.
My college buddy who has a small computer business has contacted some roofing companies (Omaha, NE), which inspected first the roofs before doing the repairs. The guaranteed that the life of the roof would be longer than it was before. Because of the long usage of computers and other devices, his workplace is now safer and heat-reduced.
