Decision Makes Timberline Solar the Only Solar Roof on the Market with Miami-Dade County Approval

MIAMI, April 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar™, the world’s first nailable solar shingle, has been approved by Miami-Dade County’s Product Control Sector after an extensive multi-month review and evaluation. The County’s decision confirms that Timberline Solar meets or exceeds the High Velocity Hurricane Zone requirements of the Florida Building Code standards for safety, wind resistance, and waterproofing. Timberline Solar is the only solar roof on the market that’s approved by Miami-Dade County. GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and the leading provider of solar roofing in North America, produces Timberline Solar at the company’s facilities in California and Texas.

“Timberline Solar is the first product to incorporate solar into traditional roofing processes and materials, prioritizing resilience against extreme weather conditions like strong winds and heavy rains,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “We’re proud to be the only solar roof on the market approved by Miami-Dade’s thorough review process and this decision marks another milestone as we work to lead the future of clean energy.”

GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar™ is now the only solar roof approved by Miami-Dade County’s Product Control Sector.

The Timberline Solar Energy Shingle (ES) has a depth of less than a quarter inch and integrates with traditional shingles to create a sleek and attractive look. Timberline Solar, the first to be certified to UL 7103 as a Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Roof Covering, meets a host of rigorous third-party safety standards covering both roofing and solar. The company’s recently completed 450,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas, established GAF Energy as the largest producer of solar roofing in the world.
