CertainTeed Apollo Solar Roofing System debuts at Greenbuild 2011
November 3, 2011 - CertainTeed Corporation debuted its Apollo Solar Roofing System at Greenbuild 2011 last month. The system features “highly integrated” photovoltaic (PV) panels and is described by the company as lightweight, durable, resistant to wind uplift, and easily integrated into existing or new roof installations. According to the company, each 12-pound module features 14 high-efficiency polycrystalline silicon solar cells that absorb sunlight and can generate most or all of the electricity a home uses during the day with its maximum output potential. If there is leftover electricity, the excess power then flows back through the meter into the power grid.
