NEWARK, N.J. — GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company, announced the launch of its innovative Timberline Solar™ roof in New Jersey. Timberline Solar, which directly integrates solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials, is now available to New Jersey residents for installation by local roofers.
The solar roofing system incorporates the world's first nailable solar shingle, the Timberline Solar Energy Shingle (ES), which is assembled domestically at GAF Energy's U.S. manufacturing and R&D facility.
"New Jerseyans now have access to the best solar solution for their home — a durable, attractive, affordable solar roof that is manufactured in America and installed by a local roofer they trust," said Jason Barrett, senior vice president of Sales for GAF Energy. "We're excited to bring the next generation of clean energy adoption to New Jersey homeowners."
The Timberline Solar ES™ boasts an industry-defying depth of less than a quarter inch and integrates with traditional shingles to create a sleek look. It is the first product to achieve UL's 7103 certification, which certifies that GAF Energy's product meets UL's rigorous electrical, building and safety standards as a roofing product and a solar energy product — the first of its kind to be recognized as both.
Since its launch in January 2022, Timberline Solar has received dozens of awards, including from CES, TIME, Fast Company, Roofing Contractor Magazine, Popular Science, Green Builder, Good Housekeeping and the NAHB. To meet demand, GAF Energy is significantly increasing its Timberline Solar manufacturing capacity with the construction of a new 450,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas.
