Why is GAF’s Timberline Solar Shingles an Enormous Game Changer for Solar Tech?

Solar panels perform well as excellent materials for collecting solar energy and powering an entire house that requires more than 300kWH to function properly. While some Golden, CO homeowners may find the solar panel to be quite bulky and non-endearing appearance-wise, it’s still an excellent solar energy collecting system for most homes.

Then came Tesla’s solar shingles that became a huge hit with many homeowners nationwide due to its discreet and low-profile appearance. But, unfortunately, it had many issues requiring many repairs and maintenance to keep working properly. As a result, it has become a pariah of exploring solar shingle technologies without looking at the finest details.

GAF’s Timberline Solar Shingles has become a huge game-changer for solar technologies because it’s the first time a solar panel can be drilled straight into your roof, just as any roofer would with a standard set of asphalt shingles. According to GAF, their Timberline Solar Shingles reduce the time to install asphalt shingles from weeks to days because of its innate installation process similar to that of asphalt shingles.

Laying a path for a more solarized future, Silicon Valley's GAF Energy has launched the Timberline Solar charging system at CES 2022. Replacing the rack-mounted panels on which traditional residential roof solar systems rely, Timberline Energy Shingles (ES) take on an ultra-thin, flat-mounted form that installs just like a regular shingle. The Timberline panels nail down with ease, blend more naturally with a home's aesthetics and stand strong against winds up to 130 mph.

If the name "GAF Timberline" sounds familiar, it's likely because you've heard of GAF Timberline roof shingles. GAF describes itself as North America's largest roofing manufacturer, and Timberline shingles are readily available through major retailers like Home Depot and Lowe's.

Spun off in 2019, GAF Energy is GAF's solar product arm and currently offers the Decotech line of low-profile solar panels. With Timberline Solar, GAF Energy rolls out a simpler solar panel with the same flush, weather-resistant form as traditional Timberline shingles. It calls the Timberline Solar ES the world's first nailable solar shingle and adds on the same 130-mph (209-km/h) wind resistance and limited lifetime warranty that apply to Timberline HD shingle products.
