5 Reasons Solar Shingles Will Change the Way You Think About Solar

Solar Energy

Shine Solar has collaborated with GAF Energy to bring a brand-new product to the solar industry. Solar shingles are the latest technology in renewable energy providing a sleeker, more modern alternative to traditional solar. Shine Solar is the first to partner with GAF in this endeavor to bring clean energy in a never-before-seen way. Here are 5 reasons solar shingles will change the way you think about solar.

Timberline™ solar shingles are the “world’s first nail-able solar shingle” according to Shine partner, GAF Energy. Solar shingles are water-shedding, strong, and warranted to withstand up to 130 mph winds. Their durability gives the consumer the confidence that their shingles will stand the test of time.  

Increased Tax Credit

In addition to durability, the Timberline™ solar shingle is an American made product. Because of this, you will see an additional 10% tax credit totaling a 40% federal tax credit putting money back in your pocket. The federal government incentivizes American made products, so by investing in solar shingles, you can save money in more ways than one.


The Timberline™ solar shingle is also much more affordable than you might initially think. According to Ryan B., an owner of a Timberline™ solar roof, “The overall cost of my roof with the solar was surprisingly affordable and the financing they offered was very competitive.” With financing options, owning a solar roof is made accessible and streamlined for customers.  

Simple Process

The process of installing a solar roof is a simple, straightforward process. This is a one project, one crew operation which will begin generating energy for your home and saving you money on your electric bills. Ryan B., a solar roof owner states, “Having the same installer for both the shingles and solar simplified the installation process and eliminated the need for contacting multiple parties if any issues arise.” Streamlining the process through use of one crew makes the installation process simpler with less chance of any hiccups along the way.

Finally, Timberline™ solar shingles have a design that helps blend in with the aesthetic of your home rather than detracting from it. The technology in Timberline™ solar shingles use elements that help add visual appeal like an architectural shingle, adding curb appeal to your home. This new take on renewable energy helps add value and seamlessly blends with the design of your home.  

To sum up, solar shingles are changing the way we think about renewable energy and its benefits. While you still retain some of the beloved perks of solar-lower electric bill and the solar tax credit, solar shingles offer an affordable, aesthetic, and simple solution to your solar roofing need.
