GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar™ is a groundbreaking solar roofing solution that seamlessly integrates solar technology into conventional roofing materials and procedures. It features the world’s first nailable solar shingle, which sits flush with the roof surface. This offers both resilience and a modern appearance. Timberline Solar™ has been developed with affordability in mind, particularly in the face of ever-increasing utility rates. By harnessing solar energy to power your home instead of relying on grid electricity, you could experience lower energy costs. Over time, the savings generated by your Timberline Solar™ roof can help offset the expense of installing a new roof. It may even enhance your property’s resale value!
The cost of a Timberline Solar™ system for a standard home depends on factors like the roof’s dimensions and incline, the surrounding shade, and the amount of sunlight received daily. Designed with affordability in mind, Timberline Solar™ pricing usually aligns with the combined expenses of installing a new roof and conventional rack-mounted solar panels. Presently, Timberline Solar™ is offered for home installation – but commercial may come in the future.
As the pioneering solar roof solution, Timberline Solar™ features the world’s first nailable solar shingle, which can be effortlessly installed by roofers using just a nail gun, much like conventional roofing shingles. This innovative roof-integrated solar system provides a streamlined, watertight installation that mimics traditional shingle placement. In contrast, most residential solar systems involve rack-mounted panels or tiles.This requires specialized installation techniques and structures that may involve ballast or the use of lag bolts, potentially compromising the roof’s waterproofing and accelerating its deterioration. Additionally, the compact design of the Timberline Solar™ Energy Shingle (ES) makes it suitable for installation on more intricate roof configurations, such as dormers or hipped roofs.
Evaluating the efficiency of Timberline Solar™ as a comprehensive roofing solution differs from standard solar panels. The Energy Shingle (ES) employs the same high-efficiency mono PERC cell technology present in top-tier solar panels, and depending on the unique roof structure of a home, Timberline Solar™ might accommodate a higher kilowatt capacity per roof compared to traditional solar panels.
The Timberline Solar™ system is engineered to function in conjunction with the electrical grid and is compatible with numerous energy storage solutions available in the market. AC-coupled batteries can be integrated into existing solar setups when needed. However, other energy storage options may necessitate special equipment for pre-existing solar installations. Keep in mind that all energy storage choices and features are site-specific and tailored to the individual energy storage system. Consult with one of Stronghold’s solar roofing experts beforehand to ensure that the specifications align with the installed solar components and the intended operation modes (backup, self-consumption, time-of-use load shifting, etc.).
Designed to withstand various weather conditions such as snow, rain, and wind, Timberline Solar™ comes with a warranty and typically only needs minimal maintenance. Seasonal rainfall should help maintain the cleanliness of the solar roofing system by removing dirt and debris. If needed, homeowners can gently rinse the shingles (only when cool). Timberline Solar™ offers robust protection against the elements while consistently producing clean energy for the household. It is essentially a roof with integrated power capabilities, crafted to shield your home from leaks and weather-related concerns. Timberline Solar™ users can access the GAF Energy customer portal to monitor their system’s output and track clean energy generation. This monitoring feature enables customers to easily identify any potential issues.
