These DOW solar shingles are not just a more attractive way to build solar panels, but they are also literally shingles — they are classified as official roofing products.

“Dow Solar Shingles are among the most cutting-edge renewable solutions on the market, making DOW POWERHOUSE the ideal partner for NEXUS EnergyHomes,” said Paul Zanecki, NEXUS EnergyHomes founder and President. “They enable us to offer our customers a truly breakthrough product, from one of the biggest names in renewable energy solutions.”

“This solar integrated roof product protects the home, uses sunlight to power it, and provides superior aesthetic appeal for our homes’ exterior design, and that is exactly what we were looking for, because they support our ability to lead the market in sustainable living. This is the future of new homebuilding in America.”

Some people are concerned about the aesthetic impact of solar panels on their homes. That is largely determined by how neatly and where on their roofs the panels are installed. Solar shingles fit together in a very neat, and some would contend more attractive fashion.

These DOW shingles are also manufactured in the USA, which is a very important part of the alternative energy revolution, which is also intended to help the local economy. It is difficult to pull this off, but it is working, and Dow might just accelerate it with this outstanding innovation, if it explodes like I think it will.

Nexus EnergyHomes said the solar shingles are validated to withstand wind uplift of up to 150 MPH (earning the highest Class F rating).

These shingles actually protect the house, because, as Nexus EnergyHomes said on its website, they aren’t ON the roof, they ARE the roof!

I love getting more out of equipment!
