With multiple innovative photovoltaic roofing products on the market, CertainTeed Corporation continues to take an ambitious foray into the solar roofing industry.
In addition to a powerful product portfolio, extensive contractor training programs, and comprehensive technical support, the company has now installed CertainTeed PowerMax photovoltaic modules on its manufacturing facility in Portland, Ore.
"Installing the PowerMax system at the Portland plant was a logical step in reducing the overall environmental impact of our operations and strengthening our position in the solar roofing market," said Tom Smith, president of CertainTeed Roofing.
"It sends a clear signal that we fully stand behind our solar roofing products."
Offering the most efficient cost-to-power ratio in the industry, PowerMax features an innovative Copper-Indium-Selenium (CIS) thin film technology developed by CertainTeed's parent company, Saint-Gobain, the world's largest building materials company, and its subsidiary, Saint-Gobain Solar, the worldwide leader in solar energy products and services.
Approximately 3,100 square feet of PowerMax modules were installed at the Portland facility by EC Electrical Construction Company.
The ultra-efficient, 26 kilowatt (kW) system is comprised of 216 photovoltaic modules that are estimated to produce enough clean energy to offset approximately 500,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions over 20 years.
