GAF Energy is North America’s leading provider of roof-integrated solar solutions, and this week it bolstered the power of its system by teaming with Solaria to include its super high-efficiency solar panels with its roof-integrated solar product. This partnership brings two leaders together from the solar and roofing industry to transform passive roofs to solar roofs.
The new Solaria panels are 16 percent more powerful than GAF Energy’s previous offering, allowing homeowners to fit more roof-integrated solar capacity in a similar amount of space. Solaria’s innovative cell technology is best-in-class for efficiency and power, giving homeowners a premium option for adding solar to their roof. By increasing solar capacity and production, the new solar panels can increase the long-term value of a GAF Energy solar roof to homeowners.
“Solaria panels are an exciting upgrade to our roof-integrated solar offering. These are top-of-the line solar panels that are not only more powerful, but are sleek, black-on-black to improve the aesthetics of an already beautiful design. These are a premium offering, and nobody else in the market can offer the combination of roof-integrated, high-efficiency solar like GAF Energy,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “By increasing the power and efficiency of the solar, we’re able to increase the value of our solar roof for our customers.”

The new super high-efficiency solar panels optimize power output and maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to further reduce the risk of leaks and avoid animal intrusion.
