In 2016 Tesla attempted to reinvent the roof as a set of glass squares filled with solar energy, a vision it has been struggling to achieve ever since. GAF Energy The reality based in San Jose, California thinks it has a simpler solar roof solution.
According to the Arab Gateway for Technology News, the company has made a solar roof that can be installed much like how you install the wood panels you use when repairing or replacing a regular non-solar roof..
You may have heard of the solar roof before, but the head of a company GAF Energy, Martin Debono, points out that the new solar roof Timberline He is the first to deserve this name because he is the first to work in this way.
“A group of companies have come up with what they call a solar roof, but this solar roof is pretty much identical to regular, very small solar panels,” Debono said, explaining how those earlier solar roofs required rails so the panels could be disassembled..
Debono claims that the result of the company’s work allows the installation of the solar roof in days instead of weeks, and says: We installed it in two days, including removing the old roof and placing the new roof.
The company has experimented with traditional tile-based solar roofs, and Debono said that GAF Energy It has installed over 2,000 of them, allegedly more than Tesla.
GAF Energy competes with Tesla in solar roof production
It takes several days with 12 people working on the roof, Debono says. But the parent company, the building materials conglomerate Standard IndustriesI decided to invest over a billion dollars in this seemingly simpler solution.
Debono explained that Timberline It is the first product to be certified UL 7103 To function as solar panels and building materials, thanks to a special blend of glass, polysilicon solar cells and a top layer of fluorinated alkane ethylene polymer..
This combination is fire retardant, shock-resistant, snugly designed to be easy to walk on, and still transparent enough to let light through..
He says the solar roof has a first-class rating against fire and cold, and the solar roof is less dense with the same thickness as regular shingles, meaning it weighs less and should be easier for roofers to handle.
