San Francisco, March 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — GAF Energy, North America’s prominent provider of roof-integrated solar solutions, today declared the launch of a brand new excellent high-efficiency solar panel for use with its roof-integrated solar invention. The new Solaria® panels are 16 percent more potent than the former offering, permitting homeowners to install more roof-integrated solar capability in a similar amount of space. Solaria’s inventive cell technology is top class for power and efficiency, giving homeowners the finest option for fitting solar to their roof. By growing solar capacity and production, the new solar panels can raise the long-term value of a GAF Energy solar roof to landowners.
“Solaria® panels are an exciting upgrade to our roof-integrated solar offering. These are top-of-the-line solar panels that are not only more powerful, but are sleek, black-on-black to improve the aesthetics of an already beautiful design. These are a premium offering, and nobody else in the market can offer the combination of roof-integrated, high-efficiency solar like GAF Energy,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “By increasing the power and efficiency of the solar, we’re able to increase the value of our solar roof for our customers.”
“Solaria’s goal has been to develop a no-compromise solar panel offering superior performance, aesthetics, and greater reliability to our customers,” said Suvi Sharma, CEO at Solaria® Corporation. “We are pleased to offer that technology to power GAF Energy’s roof-integrated solar offering.

The new super high-efficiency solar panels optimize power output and maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to further reduce the risk of leaks and avoid animal intrusion.
