GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar shingle rollout continues, now available in Hawaii. Timberline Solar is the only system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials.
The system, launched earlier this year, incorporates the world’s first nailable solar shingle, the Timberline Solar Energy Shingle (ES), which is assembled at GAF Energy’s U.S. manufacturing and R&D facility.
“We’re thrilled to launch our Timberline Solar roof in Hawaii through our roofing partners in the state. Hawaii residents, who have some of the highest energy costs in the country, now have access to our award-winning solar roof that can pay for both itself and the new roof over the lifetime of the solar roof,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy.
Keys to the Timberline product are its aesthetics and ease of install for roofers, which could be huge for expanding the residential solar market overall.
Earlier this year, GAF Energy announced that it’s building a second manufacturing facility, in Texas, to meet the growing demand for Timberline Solar.
