Global industrial company Standard Industries has launched a new rooftop solar company called GAF Energy.
Working in partnership with GAF, a Standard Industries company, GAF Energy aims to drive the scalable adoption of integrated and affordable rooftop solar solutions across GAF’s distribution network.
“As the largest global player in roofing and waterproofing, we will reshape the way clean solar energy becomes a reality for everyone,” says David Millstone, co-CEO of Standard Industries. “We believe that roofing is real estate, and we see a future with energy from every roof. GAF Energy’s offerings will empower people to put their roofs to work with technology that is attractive, accessible and affordable.”
With a turnkey approach, the company has dedicated teams for project management, design, permitting and installation.
“GAF Energy capitalizes on the historic challenges facing the rooftop solar industry – acquisition and installation costs – and turns them into demonstrable strengths – making it easy for customers to say yes to solar rooftops,” notes Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy. “Our product is smart, integrated and economical, and we hope it will mark a fundamental shift in rooftop solar adoption around the world.”
With offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York Metro Area, GAF Energy is building a team to generate “Energy From Every Roof,” the company’s trademark.
