POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 Solar Shingle by RGS Energy
RGS Energy’s POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 Solar Shingle is a new roofing shingle that combines the performance and protection of a conventional asphalt roof with an integrated photovoltaic (PV) system that powers the home with clean energy from the sun. This product protects a home like a standard roofing shingle while providing energy that saves the homeowner money and is as easy to install as an asphalt rooftop—all while maintaining the home’s attractiveness.
Asphalt rooftops represent approximately 85 percent of all residential U.S. rooftops. The POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle is engineered to address historically unmet needs by giving homeowners an option to go solar without bulky, rack-mounted systems.
Here are a few key features of the POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 Solar Shingle by RGS Energy:
- POWERHOUSE™ is based on technology developed by The Dow Chemical Company.
- The shingle is designed to address critical customer requirements and achieves a competitive price point.
- An asphalt roof with POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles can be thousands of dollars less expensive than other integrated solar products installed with high-cost tile or concrete roofing materials.
POWERHOUSE™ is set to transform the residential market by making a solar shingle system installation as easy as installing an asphalt rooftop—all while maintaining the home’s attractiveness. As one of our judges put it, “It is really something. It looks seamless on the roof.”
