Osterville, MA (PressExposure) March 29, 2013 -- Made in America in Midland, Michigan, The DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingle is an award-winning, integrated solar roofing system that protects the home and generates electricity. It is a first-of-its kind product, designed to combine the benefits of solar technology with the durability and performance of traditional roofing materials.
The 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 1Â¼". 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.
