GAF Energy, North America’s leading provider of roof-integrated solar solutions, has announced the launch of a brand new super high-efficiency solar panel for use with its roof-integrated solar product. The new Solaria panels are 16 percent more powerful than the previous offering, allowing homeowners to fit more roof-integrated solar capacity in a similar amount of space.
Solaria’s innovative cell technology is best-in-class for efficiency and power, giving homeowners a premium option for adding solar to their roof. By increasing solar capacity and production, the new solar panels can increase the long-term value of a GAF Energy solar roof to homeowners.
“Solaria panels are an exciting upgrade to our roof-integrated solar offering. These are top-of-the-line solar panels that are not only more powerful, but are sleek, black-on-black to improve the aesthetics of an already beautiful design. These are a premium offering, and nobody else in the market can offer the combination of roof-integrated, high-efficiency solar like GAF Energy,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “By increasing the power and efficiency of the solar, we’re able to increase the value of our solar roof for our customers.”
“Solaria’s goal has been to develop a no-compromise solar panel offering superior performance, aesthetics, and greater reliability to our customers,” said Suvi Sharma, CEO at Solaria Corporation. “We are pleased to offer that technology to power GAF Energy’s roof-integrated solar offering. This partnership brings two leaders together from the solar and roofing industry to transform passive roofs to solar roofs.”
GAF Energy empowers roofing contractors across the U.S. with a comprehensive and economical approach to solar installations. The GAF Energy solar system couples innovative, attractive, and affordable solar technology with fast, easy installation.
Designed to provide a good-looking, low-profile alternative to typical rack-mounted solar panels – which are typically drilled through the roof’s shingles – GAF Energy solar integrates directly with the roofing system and is part of the primary water-shedding layer.
The new super high-efficiency solar panels optimize power output and maximize aesthetic appeal, combined with robust flashing and a sleek black perimeter shield to further reduce the risk of leaks and avoid animal intrusion.

Shedding light on optimal materials for harvesting sunlight underwater
Washington DC (SPX) Mar 19, 2020
There may be many overlooked organic and inorganic materials that could be used to harness sunlight underwater and efficiently power autonomous submersible vehicles, report researchers at New York University. Their research, publishing March 18 in the journal Joule, develops guidelines for optimal band gap values at a range of watery depths, demonstrating that various wide-band gap semiconductors, rather than the narrow-band semiconductors used in traditional silicon solar cells, are best equipped for u … read more
