CertainTeed Intros New Apollo Solar Roof

During Greenbuild in Toronto, CertainTeed Corporation introduced a new solar photovoltaic system called the Apollo Solar Roofing System.  Apollo skips the rack and mount for a seamless profile that integrates with standard roof shingles.  Each 12-pound module has 14 high-efficiency, polycrystalline silicon solar cells that soak up the sun and convert it to energy to power the underlying home.

Apollo “fully integrates with roofing shingles for a clean, seamless appearance” and the “lightweight design does not require structural reinforcement or evaluation,” according to a press release.  The solar PV system is only available in the US at this time.

Apollo will be offered in pre-engineered kits with everything necessary for installation. The modules are Class A fire rated, meet UL 1703 requirements, and should qualify for a 30 percent federal tax credit (and any other available state and local incentives).

Apollo is one of several solar system available through CertainTeed including EnerGen, a thin-film solar laminate system, and Avancis PowerMax, a jet-black panel-type solar system.
