Few things say renewable energy like solar. Like most areas of technology, solar is always advancing in one way or another. Be that through rooftop panels or other gadgetry, it’s a major factor in the future of sustainable power.

The latest product from GAF Energy, shown at CES 2022, evolves solar’s potential even further. Introducing the GAF Energy Timberline Solar nailable shingles. They’re a simpler, more eco-friendly way to do home solar, and they might be coming soon. Let’s take a look and see what they’re all about!

Provide easier installation that regular roofers can do

Traditional solar—excluding Tesla’s solar tiles—uses panels that secure to a rail system installed on your roof. These panels are typically thick and vary in size, weight, and style.

For example, drive down any street in a suburban neighborhood and you’ll likely see at least a few houses with solar—some of which will look cleaner and more stylish than others. At the end of the day, there are still a bunch of large objects strapped to the roof. These objects require advanced installation by a professional solar team.

CNBC talks about GAF Energy’s new solar roof shingles

The Timberline Solar shingles, however, forego the panel design and instead opt for a shingle-style look. The new solar shingles are thinner and flatter, blending in better with your roof.

They also naturally withstand wind speeds up to 130 mph. Best of all, the nailable solar shingles don’t require a solar company to install. Any roofing team with experience can get the job done.

Integrate with the roof to fall under one warranty

These nailable solar shingles are designed to blend as seamlessly as possible with roofs. While they’re not quite as effective stylistically as, say, Tesla’s solar tiles, they do appear to fit together nicely.

In fact, the design allows for the roof and solar to install together as one entity, making it a single project that only one contractor needs to install. This allows the roof and the solar system to fall under the same warranty. That’s an advantage anyone can get behind.

Have an award-winning design to shake up solar markets

At CES 2022, GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar managed to secure itself 3 different Innovation Awards. That’s a pretty big deal for GAF Energy and may signal that its latest design is well on the right track.

Will it shake up the existing solar markets as it becomes available? It certainly seems as though it has the potential to. Either way, options are always a win-win for consumers. In the meantime, you can head on over to the official website here for more information.
