CertainTeed's EnerGen Flush-mounted
Photovoltaic Solar Roofing System

Unlike other photovoltaic (PV) systems on the market, CertainTeed's EnerGen system is specifically designed with building professionals and conventional roofing contractors in mind, offering ease of installation and vastly improved aesthetics for homeowners.

The EnerGen system features integrated UNI-SOLAR® thin-film laminates that seamlessly integrate with traditional asphalt roofing shingles. The laminates lie flush with the traditional shingles, providing a streamlined, visually appealing appearance.  By providing a more aesthetically pleasing, unobtrusive roof plane with no roof penetrations, the product overcomes the largest objection to the acceptance of solar panels. In addition, the system's lightweight design requires no rooftop penetrations, making it easier for contractors to install while maintaining roof deck integrity.  

“Photovoltaics continue to gain momentum as the world's fastest growing energy technology,” says Guillaume Texier, president of CertainTeed Roofing. “Through the development of EnerGen, a lightweight, easy-to-install system, we are helping building professionals and roofing contractors expand their product offering and seize new opportunities for growth.”

The EnerGen system is offered in pre-engineered kits containing all components necessary for installation.  Its flexible design allows it to be customized to meet a home's specific energy needs and environmental conditions.  EnerGen's versatility makes it perfect for residential remodeling or new construction projects. 

CertainTeed is transforming a niche technology into a product that is more accessible to the building industry and, therefore, a broader range of homeowners,” adds Texier.  “EnerGen is the first step in what will be a comprehensive portfolio of photovoltaic roofing products for residential and commercial applications.”
