Port Chester, NY, June 06, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- SunTegra, a leading provider of solar roof systems, today announced the release of a higher efficiency version of its SunTegra Solar Shingle®. The updated offering has a 16.6 percent conversion efficiency, making it the most efficient solar roof product available on the market today. SunTegra’s Solar Shingle is 10 to 25 percent more efficient than competing solutions.
“We are delighted to offer our customers higher efficiency versions of our popular SunTegra Solar Shingle product. Customers want the low-profile, integrated look of a solar roof product, while also maximizing available roof area, clean energy generation from the sun and return on investment,” said Oliver Koehler, CEO and founder of SunTegra. “High-efficiency residential products are especially important as the available roof area suitable for solar on most homes is typically only 20 to 40 percent of the total roof area.”
The new SunTegra Solar Shingle will be available as either a 105 watt or 110 watt version, which replace the previous 95 watt and 100 watt versions offered to customers across the United States for the past two years. The 105 watt product is available immediately and the 110 watt product will be released later in summer 2017.
SunTegra also manufacturers a Solar Tile® product. Like the Solar Shingle, the Solar Tile solution attaches directly to roof decking or battens and functions as a solar panel and roofing material. The SunTegra Solar Shingle and Solar Tile are UL 1703 certified and carry a UL Class A fire rating.
SunTegra’s solar roof products use the same crystalline solar technology found in most conventional solar panels. SunTegra’s solar roof products also incorporate a unique ventilation technology called the Tegravent™, allowing for better airflow and cooling of the panels when in operation to ensure the highest productivity and efficiency gains.
“This new industry-leading efficiency development strengthens our offering and our position as a leader in the solar roofing space. In addition to having solar roofing materials on the market today, our existing expertise enables the company to continually improve on price and performance and to push industry standards higher, ultimately ensuring greater returns for our customers,” said Mark Paille, Vice President of Sales at SunTegra.
