ATLANTA — Northpoint Roofing Systems announced the launch of a solar division in its line of roofing solutions. The company believes this launch will resolve commercial and residential renewable energy dilemmas penetrating today's market.

As inflation and other factors like supply shortages continue to cause price increases, more people are looking for ways to save anywhere they can, including their utilities. To that end, Northpoint is now offering well-designed and engineered solar electricity with little maintenance while also providing a broad education on available options.

"We recently hired John Harding as director of solar to lead this launch, who has over seven years of solar experience spanning the spectrum of residential solar sales and sales management," said Joe Happe, general manager and co-owner of Northpoint Roofing.

Harding also has extensive knowledge in commercial solar, including a 940-kilowatt installation and utility-scale solar development in Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas.

"My commitment to solar as a viable solution for homeowners grew from my experience working in Europe and seeing development in markets with considerably less sun, but a well-developed commitment to renewable solutions for energy production," said Harding.

Northpoint states that a solar division makes sense for them and their customers for multiple reasons, mainly that, as a roofing company, it understands the intricacies of a roof system.

"We know roofs. Every solar installer will ask you about the age of your roof because it is critical to solar installation," said Keith Priddy, president and co-founder of Northpoint Roofing. "Speak to one of our customers, and they will rave about our roofs. We can now offer our customers a complete roofing system that adds more value to their property and saves them money while caring about the next generation. Just wait; our customers will be raving about our solar solutions in no time."
