AUSTIN, Texas, March 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and the leading provider of solar roofing in North America, today announced the launch of its innovative Timberline Solar™ roof to Austin-area residents. Timberline Solar™ is the only system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials. This new 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.
“We’re thrilled to launch our Timberline Solar™ roof in Austin. Now Austin-area residents have access to the award winning solar roof – and have a roof that pays for itself over time,” said Keally DeWitt, Vice President of Communications for 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 clean energy adoption to Austin.”
Timberline Solar™ 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 authorizes GAF Energy to install the system on residential roofs as a roofing product and a solar energy product — the first of its kind to be recognized as both. In addition, GAF Energy worked with Sandia National Laboratories, a U.S. Department of Energy research and development lab, to verify the product’s strength and durability.
