GAF Energy is improving upon its roof-integrated solar solution with the new and improved DecoTech 2.0. Perfect for roofing contractors expanding into solar, the redesigned product will deliver the same homeowner value and give installers a fast, easy, durable solar solution for customers. DecoTech 2.0 will maintain the same excellent aesthetic appeal of all GAF Energy’s products (the company combines its mounting system with super high-efficiency Solaria solar panels) while simplifying the installation process for installers.
“We need to be improving and innovating in this moment more than ever, and our new DecoTech 2.0 system delivers on that. Not only does our redesigned system simplify the installation process, but it can reduce costs and save our local roofing contractors time,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “The goal is to provide a product to roofers that is as simple and easy to install as a non-solar roof, while delivering superior value.”
Designed to provide a good-looking, low-profile alternative to typical rack-mounted solar panels — which are typically drilled through the roof’s shingles — GAF Energy solar integrates directly with the roofing system and is part of the primary water-shedding layer.
The upgraded system features wiring improvements for durability and safety. It also boasts fewer points of attachment and new fastener hardware for quicker and simpler installation.
GAF Energy empowers roofing contractors across the U.S. with a comprehensive and economical approach to solar installations.
New super high-efficiency solar panels optimize power output and maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to help reduce the risk of leaks and animal intrusion.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
