World’s First Nailable Roof-like Solar Shingle Debuts in NJ

Award Winning Solar Roof Boasts World's First Nailable Solar Shingle and Installs Like a Traditional Roof

GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and a leading provider of solar roofing in North America, has announced the launch of its Timberline Solar™ roof in New Jersey. Timberline Solar™ is the only system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials. It incorporates the world’s first nailable solar shingle, the Timberline Solar™ Energy Shingle (ES), which is assembled domestically at GAF Energy’s U.S. manufacturing and R&D facility.

“New Jerseyans now have access to the best solar solution for their home—a durable, attractive, affordable solar roof that is manufactured in America and installed by a local roofer they trust,” said Jason Barrett, senior vice president of sales for GAF Energy. “We’re excited to bring the next generation of clean energy adoption to New Jersey homeowners.”

The Timberline Solar ES™ boasts an industry-defying depth of less than a quarter inch and integrates with traditional shingles to create a sleek and attractive look. It is the first product to achieve UL’s 7103 certification, which certifies that GAF Energy’s product meets UL’s rigorous electrical, building and safety standards as a roofing product and a solar energy product—the first of its kind to be recognized as both.

Timberline Solar™ is the most-awarded solar shingle in the world. Since its launch in January 2022, it has received dozens of awards, including from CES, TIME, Fast Company, Popular Science, Green Builder, Good Housekeeping and the NAHB. To meet demand, GAF Energy is significantly increasing its Timberline Solar™ manufacturing capacity with the construction of a new 450,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas.
