Dow Solar Solutions

The dream of a solar-powered house has intrigued homeowners for years. But solar energy has always faced two big challenges: the way it looks and how it’s installed. The DOW™ POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle is changing all of that. The solution is built into the design.

LOOKS: Solar energy no longer has to come from massive panels added to the top of your roof. POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles were designed purposefully to be pleasing to the eye and blend with your roof’s good looks. Developed as a Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) product, they’re tough, flexible and thin enough to be a shingle because they are roofing shingles. So not only do they generate power, but they shield your home from the elements. Solar Shingles are a part of your roof and look like they belong there.

INSTALLATION: POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles are a great example of technology making things simpler. High-tech materials allow for a building-integrated design that also makes installation easy. So easy in fact, they can be installed by a roofing contractor, just like regular asphalt shingles. A unique, integrated electrical connection system eliminates complicated on-roof wiring, meaning fewer holes drilled into your roof, helping to preserve its integrity. The only specialist you’ll need on your roof is the one who belongs there — the roofing contractor. And that helps reduce the overall installation cost.

Dow Solar is making it easier than ever to choose clean, renewable energy. And with federal tax incentives, plus state and local incentives that may be available in your area, your net cost can be even lower. Not to mention what you will save on your electric bills once your house is making its own energy.
