Thanks to GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, New Jersey is now home to one of the country’s highest output residential solar roofing installations. The 64-panel DecoTech Solar Roofing System is more than three times larger than the average residential solar roof, totaling 18.2 kW at peak performance in Far Hills, New Jersey.
“The DecoTech Solar Roofing System has an intuitive, interlocking design that simplifies the installation process and saves time and money, which is particularly important with a large-scale project like this one,” said Jon Parker of American Home Contractors, a GAF factory-certified Master Elite Roofing Contractor based in Florham Park, New Jersey. “We look forward to being involved in future DecoTech installations.”
“We are bringing an innovative and affordable solar solution to the roofing market with unique features and sleek aesthetics,” said Amy Ochsenreiter, renewable energy product manager at GAF. “The completion of one of the country’s largest solar roofing installations is an exciting milestone for the industry and for the GAF team.”
This project follows successful DecoTech Solar Roofing System installations on homes in California and New York, after multiple DecoTech installations on test sites throughout the country.
“We’re proud to offer an exceptional solar roofing system that is the product of our legacy in roofing and our experience in solar,” said Jim Schnepper, president of GAF. “We anticipate continued growth in the solar market, and we are committed to refining and expanding our offerings.”
