Simple rolled white tarp type material is fastened to the roof along with tracks. During the day these shade would roll down and reflect sunlight. Simple and cheap this could reduce cooling bills substantially. Depending on the budget solar flexible solar panels could be added for additional savings. Since these are retractable residential HOA approval would be minimal. These could also be used on commercial buildings even adding advertisements. Arduino based components would monitor sunlight and weather.
