GAF's Timberline Solar Shingles stole the show in CES last year when it showcased how solar shingles can be simplified and efficient. It became a national flagship for how solar shingles should be done. In many ways, it overshadowed the dominating line of Tesla solar shingles.
Timberline Solar Shingles showed the world the possibilities of seamless solar and roofing technologies. GAF used a simple principle: combine the know-how of roofers and include solar cells to collect energy and power homes and properties. Instead of using specialized teams and limiting product distribution, GAF used its extensive network of certified roofers to spread the word and install the technology.
The simplified process also meant existing certified and Master Elite roofers only needed enough training to install solar shingles effectively. We can also assume GAF's training includes the best way to quote interested homeowners. In doing so, Master Elite roofers can be the installation, maintenance, and consultant.
Today, Timberline Solar Shingles sees plenty of distribution across many states. Many homeowners are satisfied with its energy collection and the savings introduced to their property. Luckily, many property owners have yet to see the full potential of Timberline Solar as the company continues to improve its performance and capabilities.
PR Newswire has an excellent scoop about the recognition GAF solar shingles had recently received. Read an excerpt about it below.
GAF Energy's Timberline Solar™, the world's first nailable solar shingle, has received more than 30 honors and awards since its introduction one year ago to become the world's most awarded solar shingle. The two most recent awards and honors,TIME's Best Inventions of 2022 and Popular Science's Best of What's New 2022, capped a successful introductory year for Timberline Solar™. GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and the leading provider of solar roofing in North America, introduced Timberline Solar™ in January 2022. The innovative solar roof was developed and is produced at the company's R&D and manufacturing facility in San Jose, California.
"I believe that we have the most innovative residential solar product on the market today—a solar roof that is reliable, attractive, durable and easy to install—and these awards recognize the groundbreaking work our team has done," said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. "The most important feedback we've received, though, has been from the customers who are trusting us with their homes and the roofers that are installing Timberline Solar™ every day across the country. It has been an amazing first year, and the best is yet to come."
The Timberline Solar™ Energy Shingle (ES) 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 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.
In addition to the TIME and Popular Science honors, Timberline Solar™ has received dozens of other awards and honors, including from CES, Fast Company, Green Builder Media, Good Housekeeping, Roofing Contractor, the National Association of Home Builders, and Best in Biz. To meet customer 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.
