The Solar Shingles

By Jennifer

This is for the closeted tree-hugger: inconspicuous solar shingles. No one will even know that you are using solar power.

These shingles install just like normal shingles but with an added bonus, they collect those precious solar rays to convert into electricity. It seems this product could become very popular if energy prices keep rising.

Here are some of the features:

Capable of withstanding 80 mph wind loads

No support structures needed

Direct nailing on wood decks with fire-resistant underlayment

Price: If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

  1. Ok, I have to ask how much? Also is there an energy credit that applies? I live in Portland Oregon, so how long would it be to break even?
