What Are Solar Shingles?
The POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 solar shingle is a photovoltaic (PV) tile that integrates with asphalt roofing shingles to create a strong, durable roof that delivers solar energy to the home. With that being said, the solar roof tiles are designed and installed to look and function like a regular roof. In fact, solar roofing shingles are what’s known as “building-integrated photovoltaics” or BIPV. They integrate with your asphalt roofing shingles.
How Can RGS POWERHOUSE™ Help My Roofing Business?
How many other roofers do you compete with on jobs in your area? In most cases you have at least two or three direct competitors. In other cases, roofing contractors have dozens of competitors. Whether you have three competitors or a dozen, you should distinguish yourself from the competition.
Most roofing companies will state that they provide superior craftsmanship, use the highest quality material, and deliver excellent customer service. You do all of this, as well. But do your competitors offer solar roof options that can be installed alongside their new asphalt roof? If they don’t, you can. All you need to do is become a professional POWERHOUSE™ solar shingle installer.
