GAF Energy is expanding the level of solar services available to its roofing partners. GAF Energy, which provides a roof-integrated solar solution, will now allow local roofer partners to access solar specific expertise and staffing when installing a GAF Energy roof-integrated solar system.
Services include: electrical installation, system design, proposal generation, project permitting, project coordination, and installation training for solar roofing jobs. GAF Energy services allow roofing companies to enter the fast-growing residential solar market with the backing, experience, and expertise of one of the industry’s leading solar roofing companies.
“Homeowners across the country are more and more interested in going solar. With GAF Energy services, roofing contractors can do what they do best — provide a great roofing product and installation to their customer — while our team takes care of the solar design, permitting, and electrical work,” said Martin Debono, President of GAF Energy. “With GAF Energy services, roofers can readily become solar companies.”
GAF Energy empowers roofing contractors across the U.S. to sell and install solar technology. The GAF Energy solar system couples innovative, attractive, and affordable solar technology with fast, reliable installation.
Designed to provide a good-looking, low-profile alternative to standard rack-mounted solar panels — which are typically drilled through the roof’s shingles — GAF Energy solar integrates directly with the roofing system and requires no penetration of the roofing membrane. High-efficiency solar panels in the system optimize power output and provide a matching color profile to the roof to maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to 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.
