POWERHOUSETM
The POWERHOUSETM Solar Shingle is a revolutionary new roofing product that combines the performance and protection of a conventional asphalt roof with an integrated photovoltaic (PV) system that powers the home.

The POWERHOUSETM Solar Shingle protects the home like a standard roofing shingle while providing energy that saves the homeowner money. Behind a strong brand reputation and warranty, POWERHOUSETM is transforming the residential market by making a solar installation as easy as installing an asphalt rooftop – all while maintaining the home’s attractiveness.

RGS Energy can now serve the need of homeowners who want to go solar, but aren’t willing to accept the complexity and sub-optimal aesthetics currently offered by bulky, rack-mounted systems.

 

The POWERHOUSETM 3.0 Solar Shingles Product Overview

The POWERHOUSETM 3.0 Solar Shingles Product Overview
The POWERHOUSETM Solar Shingles are engineered to address the historical un-met needs of the residential homeowners by functioning differently from any other product available to homeowners with asphalt rooftops – which represent approximately 85 percent of U.S. homes. It operates as both a roof and solar product, and is installed directly onto the roof deck along with standard asphalt roofing shingles.

POWERHOUSETM Solar Shingles are both the roof and the solar energy generator, and look like they actually belong on a home. POWERHOUSETM is based upon technology developed by The Dow Chemical Company leading the introduction of POWERHOUSETM 1.0 and 2.0 to the solar community. POWERHOUSETM 3.0 is designed to achieve a competitive price point for customers.

All pictures and images shown are the earlier generations of POWERHOUSETM solar shingles. POWERHOUSETM 3.0 is expected to be available to homeowners during the second half of 2018. A primary difference with POWERHOUSETM 3.0 is using traditional silicon solar cells instead of copper indium gallium selenide cells (CIGS).



Channels to Market
As a new roofing option, the best time to choose a POWERHOUSETM solar roof is when a homeowner is replacing an existing roof due to repair or replacement.

POWERHOUSE™ Dealer Network is comprised of professional roofing contractors, national homebuilders, and developers who bring the POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles directly to U.S. homeowners.


 
Competitive Pricing, Long-Term Value
An asphalt roof with POWERHOUSETM Solar Shingles can be thousands of dollars less expensive than other integrated solar products installed with high cost tile or concrete roofing materials. POWERHOUSETM is designed to integrate asphalt roofing products, and when combined with incentives and tax credits, making POWERHOUSETM the most affordable solar shingle on the market.

As with many building-industry products, the cost to homeowners for the POWERHOUSETM system will depend on the size and configuration of the home and desired power generation.
