SRS Energy has entered into a partnership with CertainTeed Corp., a manufacturer of interior and exterior building products, to advance the development of photovoltaic roofing products.
Through the partnership, both companies will collaborate on the development of a polymeric-based photovoltaic roof tile that generates energy without compromising the look of the home. The technology will seamlessly and inconspicuously embed solar technology into roof tiles.
‘We are thrilled to be on the leading edge of developing attractive roofing products that help save homeowners money and reduce energy consumption,’ says John Donaldson, president of CertainTeed Roofing. ‘This partnership will revolutionize the way homeowners look at roofing – from being simply a form of shelter, to being an environmentally-friendly resource that powers a home.’
