What are Solar Shingles?
There are two ways to think of solar shingles – small solar panels or ordinary shingles that provide solar energy to your home. Regardless of which way you want to look at solar shingles, you’re not wrong.
Solar shingles look and operate in much the same way that ordinary roof shingles do. They’re similar in size, shape, and appearance, but they can harness energy from the sun and convert it to electrical energy for your home or business.
Solar shingles are made of the same type of durable glass used for solar panels. This glass contains special photovoltaic cells, also used in solar panels, and gives your solar shingles the ability to produce electricity. There are many different types and sizes of solar roof shingles, which are capable of producing an average of between 13 and 71 watts of energy.
While GAF solar shingles have the incredible ability to generate electricity, they can still do everything that a normal shingle would. GAF solar shingles are waterproof, resistant to the elements, immune to rain and hale, and won’t get damaged by heavy winds, hail, or debris. The glass that GAF solar shingles are made of is highly durable and heavy-duty.
Benefits of Solar Roof Shingles
While installing solar shingles on your home or business has plenty of benefits, let’s look at three of the main advantages.
Traditional forms of electrical production are expensive and can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars per month, depending on the size of your home or business. However, energy from solar shingles is 100% affordable and renewable.
Protection for Your Home
As we said before, solar shingles can do everything traditional shingles do. They’re durable, water-proof, wind-resistant, and can withstand hail or snow damage.
