Our Solarize Harwinton Campaign was a resounding success. We have 15 newly solarized households in Harwinton.
Solar Panels are fabulous but not so pretty sometimes. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could shingle our roofs with solar shingles?? Now you can!!
For homeowners interested in using a more aesthetically pleasing product to solarize their home, CertainTeed offers a solar shingle, Apollo II, that the company states is as efficient as roof mounted solar panels and the price per kilowatt-hour is comparable to the price of roof mounted systems. The Apollo II product is similar to installing a giant skylight that is integrated in the shingle roof system and acts as the exposed roofing product where it is installed. The surrounding asphalt shingles are flashed around the system, similar to flashing a skylight.Images and more detailed information can be viewed at http://www.certainteed.com/solar/products/apollo-ii/
