Sunrise Solar Solutions Now Installs Solar Shingles




Sunrise Solar Solutions, the Briarcliff Manor company that installs solar photovoltaic systems in Westchester County, the Hudson Valley and the New York Metro area, now offers solar shingle installations for residences and commercial buildings. According to Douglas Hertz, Sunrise president and CEO, solar shingles have become an extremely popular and sought-after energy option for home and business owners who like the aesthetically appealing, seamless appearance of a solar shingles roof, the relatively quick and easy installation process, and the significant federal and state tax credits and incentives available to those who invest in a solar system.

“There are many home and business owners who have been waiting for a very long time—and are still waiting—for solar shingles promised by other companies that are guaranteed to be top-quality, reliable, effective and save money,” Hertz says. “Their wait is finally over. We can deliver solar shingles to them today that are of the highest quality and feature proven technology.”

The company’s timing for unveiling its new solar shingles option couldn’t be better, he says, because the current federal and state tax credits and incentives remain significant and in full effect until 2019, when those rates will then start to decrease.

Solar That Looks Seamless

Solar shingles—photovoltaic cells designed to look like and integrate with conventional asphalt roof shingles—get installed over new or existing roof sheathing and can generate enough electricity to power a whole house, according to Hertz. The solar shingle roof combines the benefits of solar power with the reliability of traditional roof shingles, and is used in place of roofing materials to provide the same protection from the elements as is provided by regular asphalt shingles.

In order to offer this new product, SunTegra Solar Shingles, Sunrise Solar Solutions partnered with New York-based SunTegra, formerly known as Integrated Solar Technology, a solar products company known for developing high-quality, innovative solar solutions. The company’s administrative offices are in Portchester, and its manufacturing facility is located in Highland.

SunTegra Solar Shingles attach directly to a roof and integrate with composition shingles and other low-profile roofing materials, offering customers a durable and protective roof material and a high-performing solar system in one, Hertz says. The lightweight design and integrated wiring reduces complexity and increases the speed of installation.

Easy Installation

Dennis Farrell, a Stamford, Connecticut, homeowner who had SunTegra Solar Shingles installed on his home, says the conversion to solar was easy and has already begun to pay off. “It’s been a full year since installation, and I have never had any problem or issue with the shingles,” he says. “In fact, my solar shingle roof is extremely reliable and has significantly reduced my electric bill.”

The solar roof system installed on Farrell’s waterfront home consisted of 55 105-watt SunTegra Shingles. The 5.8 kilowatt (at peak) SunTegra Shingle solar roof is sized to provide an estimated 6,543 kilowatt hours per year and replaced the need for more than 400 square feet of asphalt shingle roofing. The installation of the entire shingle roof, Farrell says, was a “non-event, quick and clean, and it integrated nicely into the roof.”

Sunrise Solar Solutions is the largest locally owned and operated solar company in Westchester, the Hudson Valley and the Tri-State Area, including northern New Jersey and Connecticut. A full-service New York State Energy Research and Development Authority solar installer and North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners certified installer, Sunrise offers sales, design and installation of state-of-the-art solar energy systems for both homes and businesses.
