Thickness of Excel roof deck

Does anyone know the thickness of the wood used under the EPDM roof on an 2007 Excel? Also any known issues with screwing solar panel mounts to the roof deck? How has such installs held up for other people?

I have three panels on mine without an issue. Use dicor self leveling when done. Used either 3/4 or 1 inch number 12 wood screws.

It's at least 1" if not a little thicker - don't ask me how I know...

I've got an 07 and have one large solar panel. It is secured with 5 brackets screwed into the roof and it has a solid hold. No issues.
