GAF Energy is a Standard Industries company that provides solar roofing in North America. To meet growing demand for Timberline Solar roof, a new 450,000-square foot manufacturing facility will be built in Georgetown, Texas.
“The response from both consumers and roofers to our Timberline Solar roof has been tremendous and we’re thrilled to be expanding capacity to meet that growing demand. Georgetown has a long track record as a clean energy leader, so it is the perfect home for us to build the future of solar,” says Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy. “We launched Timberline Solar because we believed that more consumers would choose solar if they had a more reliable, durable, and attractive option. The market has confirmed our belief – now we’re turning that belief into reality and building the future of clean energy here in the U.S.”
The new facility, the company’s second, will increase its capacity by 500% and bring total production of its solar shingle to 300 MW annually. Timberline Solar offers a nailable solar roof and a roof system that integrates solar technology directly into traditional roofing materials and processes.
“We are pleased GAF Energy selected Georgetown as their destination for their facility,” adds Georgetown Mayor Josh Schroeder. “Their innovative product is one that will change the market as we know it, and we are excited that it will be developed here in our backyard.”
