Summit Energy, one of the Northeast’s larger solar installers, announced its Peak Roofing division has begun rolling out CertainTeed’s new Solstice Solar Shingle System, which was brought to market earlier this year.
CertainTeed’s Solstice line offers a solar energy collection that seamlessly integrates with asphalt shingles. In a Nov. 16 news release, Summit Energy says its Peak Roofing unit is also one of a few in the nation that are CertainTeed ‘Select Masters’ in both solar and shingles.
“We are excited to be working with CertainTeed on this highly innovative breakthrough in the solar shingle class,” said Adam Graber, director of Business Development at Summit Energy. “Solstice combines the best in aesthetics and solar power production in the industry.”
Graber added that manufacturers have been challenged to create a solar energy collection system that seamlessly integrates with asphalt shingles and that CertainTeed’s new line seems to have overcome the pinch points,
“Many manufacturers have tried, but no one has been able to create the seamless integration with asphalt shingles we see with Solstice,” Graber said. “This breakthrough design is addressing that perception head-on and is proving to be a real game-changer.”
Summit Energy says the Solstice line “…boasts market-leading impact and wind resistance for solar shingles with a wind speed rating of 110 mph …and rated to be installed in any wind zone including Florida's high-velocity hurricane zone.”
The company also noted that the watertight Solstice Shingle design is crucial, with its designed water channel and raised fastener locations providing added protection against water intrusion. Summit Energy offers solar and roofing solutions for homeowners and businesses in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
