DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles have completely changed the way the world looks at roofs, simply by making them work harder. Instead of merely lying passively on your house, these shingles generate electricity from the sun’s rays to power your life – while still keeping everything inside protected from the elements. And between making electricity, saving you money and increasing your home’s value, they’re one of the smartest investments you can make for your home.
From rooftop to fuse box, DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles are a complete system for converting the sun’s rays into electricity. Unlike other solar alternatives, everything in your POWERHOUSE system is provided and backed by Dow.
This new roofing solution is a system that includes a custom-designed array for your home based on its size, its style, your budget, and, of course, your energy-saving goals. There’s also an inverter that converts the Direct Current (DC) power into Alternating Current (AC) to power the home. And finally, the available monitoring system lets you watch and manage your electricity usage in real time. It’s a great way to see exactly how your system is performing and saving you money. Of course, the credits that show up on your electric bill are also proof of how much money DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles are saving you.
Check out how this revolutionary system works.
The Dow Solar team will work directly with you to design your powerful new roof, review financial incentives available to you, and create a custom proposal for your home. We partner with local authorized installers to install Solar Shingles just like ordinary shingles so that you can quickly have your system up and running while only needing one point of contact for your entire roof.
As for their looks, DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles are designed to complement any design. Sleek and thin, they’re impressive from all angles and are at home in the most exclusive neighborhoods. See how DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles look on your roof.
DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles have an integrated design that complements the look of your home. They’ve been endorsed by the most discriminating homeowners associations and even approved for use on historic structures.
Unlike a traditional roof, DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles create value for your home every day they’re working for you. For every $1 more you invest in a DOW POWERHOUSE roof, you’ll receive up to $4 back in energy savings. On top of that, you’ll get 70% of your investment back in added value to your home. Those savings really add up to be a smart investment over the life of your roof.
Dow Solar offers financing for Solar Shingles. For the same price as a conventional roof, you can have a roof that makes money for you.
With money-saving utility reductions, a 30% federal tax credit, and powerful state and local utility company incentives, there’s never been a better time to make the switch to solar power.
DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles are ready to greet the sunlight, but they’re also ready to stand up to wind, rain, snow, hail and fire. They’ve passed and earned seven certifications for both performance and safety, which means they’ve been tested, retested, validated and certified to stand up to the worst of the worst — including 150 mph winds and hail as large as 1¼". They’ve been designed to be maintenance free and to give your home every bit of the protection you’d demand from an ordinary roof.
And that protection is guaranteed by a 20-year warranty from Dow. Confidently made in the U.S.A. by one of America’s most trusted names in building materials, you can be sure your home is protected and powered by one of the most advanced roofs in the world.
