A Solar Industry “Game Changer”: Skyta Solar and Roofing installs Hawaii’s first solar shingle system
OAHU, Hawaii – As electricity costs continue to rise, Hawaii’s families struggle to find cost effective solutions to power their homes and save money. This week, SkytaTM Solar and Roofing (“Skyta”), Hawaii’s premier locally licensed solar and roofing contractor, installed the state’s first-ever solar energy shingle system - a competitively-priced, more aesthetically pleasing alternative to conventional rack-mounted solar panel systems.
The Timberline Solar™ Energy Shingle (ES) - launched by GAF Energy, is the world’s first nailable solar shingle. According to the GAF Energy website:
“Combined with other standard roofing components, Timberline Solar is the only product to integrate solar technology into existing roofing processes and materials to yield a full-fledged solar roof. This launch marks a turning point in residential solar energy, as incorporating solar is now as easy as building a traditional roof”.
Skyta has installed the cutting-edge GAF Energy Timberline Solar™ roof systems - the first of their kind in the state, at homes in Waianae and Waipahu (on the island of Oahu), and continues to receive orders from families who are attracted to the product’s many benefits, including:
An all-in-one warranty, which covers the product as both a roof and solar product
Ease of Installation, installed with only a nail gun
A modern, low-profile design that is sleeker than solar panels
Access to simple and accessible clean energy solutions
