GAF Energy has made its innovative Timberline Solar™ roof available to North and South Carolina residents. Timberline Solar is the only system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials.
The new system, unveiled at the 2022 Consumer Electronic Show, incorporates the world’s first nailable solar shingle, the Timberline Solar ES™ Energy Shingle, which is assembled domestically at GAF Energy’s U.S. manufacturing and R&D facility.
“We’re thrilled to launch our Timberline Solar roof in the Carolinas. North and South Carolina residents now have access to the award-winning solar roof – and have a roof that pays for itself over time,” said Jason Barrett, senior vice president of sales for GAF Energy. “Solar roofs are the future of clean energy, and Timberline Solar is in a class of its own: reliable, durable, cost-effective, easy to install, and aesthetically superior. We’re excited to bring the next generation of clean energy adoption to North and South Carolina.”
Timberline Solar boasts an industry-defying depth of less than a quarter inch and integrates with traditional shingles to create a sleek and attractive look. It is the first product to achieve UL’s 7103 certification, which authorizes GAF Energy to install the system on residential roofs as a roofing product and a solar energy product — the first of its kind to be recognized as both. In addition, GAF Energy worked with Sandia National Laboratories, a U.S. Department of Energy research and development lab, to verify the product’s strength and durability.
