HONOLULU — GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and the leading provider of solar roofing in North America, announced the launch of sales of its Timberline Solar™ roof to Hawaii residents. 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. "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 solar to Hawaii."
The Timberline Solar ES has received multiple awards and honors since its launch earlier this year, including the Best of Innovation award from CES, Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas, the Green Builder Sustainable Home Award, Good Housekeeping Editor’s Choice for CES 2022, Roofing Contractor's Editor's Choice, and the NAHB Best of IBS Awards, Most Innovative Construction Tool. Earlier this year, GAF Energy announced that it’s building a second manufacturing facility, in Texas, to meet the growing demand for Timberline Solar.
