Solar is expanding its presence in new construction at a rate that equals or exceeds retrofitting. Solar roofing systems are known to generate energy and help reduce monthly electric bills which make them an ideal up-sell or incentive in new developments.

One prominent name in roof-integrated solar is GAF Energy. The GAF Energy solar system couples attractive and affordable solar technology with fast, easy installation. Designed to provide a good-looking, low-profile alternative to typical rack-mounted solar panels – which are usually drilled through the roof’s shingles–GAF Energy solar integrates directly with the roofing system and requires no penetration of the roofing membrane. GAF Energy uses premium solar panels to optimize power output with a matching color profile to the roof to maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to reduce the risk of leaks and animal intrusion.

Alpha Omega Construction Group, a major roofing contractor in the Southeast, is the first roofing company in North Carolina to offer GAF Energy’s roof-integrated solar systems for homeowners. Alpha Omega customers can now install an energy-generating solar roof and decrease their reliance on utility power. With a GAF Energy solar roof installed by Alpha Omega, residents throughout the region can take advantage of solar with a warranty that is backed by GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer.

GAF Energy empowers roofing contractors across the U.S. to sell and install solar technology.
