GAF Energy has launched a new solar roof system called Timberline Solar™ that promises to take solar roof technology into the future.

Unlike every other solar roof system currently on the market, Timberline Solar™ manages to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials. The star of the show is the Timberline Solar Energy Shingle™ (ES), which is the first ever nailable solar shingle. And the ES will be assembled at GAF Energy’s facility in San Jose, California, which means creating American jobs while delivering a product that can help lead to widespread residential clean energy adoption.

The Timberline Solar™ is designed to be reliable, durable, cost-effective, and easy to install. The ES has a depth of less than a quarter inch and integrates well with traditional shingles for a attractive look.
GAF Energey’s sister company, GAF, is the largest roofing and waterproofing company in North America. With access to GAF’s expansive national contractor network, GAF Energy is ready to bring residential solar to the mass market.

“Solar roofs are the future of clean energy, and Timberline Solar is the game-changing innovation that will get us there,” said Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy. “At GAF Energy, we have the capacity to scale this technology like no one else through GAF, bringing an integrated solar product that is weatherproof, affordable, and design-minded to homeowners across the country. We’re excited to lead the next generation of clean energy adoption.”

“Realizing our vision of a breakthrough mass-market solar roof has been our mission since we launched GAF Energy in 2019. What the team has accomplished is nothing short of extraordinary,” said David Winter and David Millstone, co-CEOs of Standard Industries. “Through our national roofing network, world-class talent, and aggressive investment in research and development, the Standard family of companies will transform the solar industry.”

Timberline Solar™ boasts UL’s 7103 certification, which authorizes GAF Energy to install the system on residential roofs as a roofing product and a solar energy product. This is the first product of its kind to be recognized as both!

To help to put consumers at east, GAF Energy worked with Sandia National Laboratories, a U.S. Department of Energy research and development lab, to verify the product’s strength, durability, and overall market-readiness.

At the 2022 CES Show, the Timberline Solar ES™ received three major awards from CES, including its highest honor, the Best of Innovation award, for “Smart Cities.” The product was also named an Innovation Award honoree in both the “Smart Cities” and “Smart Home” categories.
