Apollo II Solar Roof Shingles from the CertainTeed company use monocrystalline silicon solar cells to capture and convert more solar energy per square foot than any other solution.
Apollo II Solar Shingles are the versatile solution for maximum power and flexibility in installation directly on new or existing roofs.
14 high-efficiency monocrystalline silicon solar cells per module for a power rating of 54 watts per module.
The slim profile provides a clean look that a rack mounted system cannot match.
Each module weighs only 12 lbs – about the same pounds per square foot as a typical asphalt shingle. Structural reinforcements are not required.
The modules are rated to 250 pounds per square foot.
Wind resistance rating
Apollo II roofing systems achieve a 110 mph wind resistance rating.
Water channels and raised fastener locations further improve the integrity of Apollo II as a roofing system.
Open space under the modules allows for easy wire/installation and eliminates the possibility of wires being pinched between the module and the roof deck.
Black (frame) on black (cells) on black (backsheet) provides a greater aesthetic and visually blends with the surrounding roof.
p>Apollo II shingles compare well with other solar shingles as well as traditional solar panels. They have a large output potential, and when properly installed have the ability to generate all of the electricity your home uses during the day. We’re interested to see what happens in the field of solar shingles in the future.
