Dow Solar

The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) unveiled its line of DOW POWERHOUSE, revolutionary photovoltaic solar panels in the form of solar shingles that can be integrated into rooftops with standard asphalt shingle materials. As of May 2012, Dow solar shingles are available in CA, Co and TX. Dow officials have yet to say how much each shingle will cost, but the estimated cost for a homeowner, with tax credits, to install solar shingles and an energy converter box is about $11,200.

Dow has found new ways to harness the sun's energy to power homes across the country. Homeowners, like you, can enjoy lower energy bills and decrease your global footprint. When you choose a solar panel from Dow, you'll enjoy the confidence in knowing that the product was built to last. The DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingle makes it possible for your house to become a self-sustaining, electrical generator using the clean, renewable power of the sun. From now on, your roof is an active part of your home, generating the electricity you need to power your life.

The DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingle is installed and performs just like a conventional shingle but with the added benefit of generating electricity to offset your electricity bills. These systems require the expertise of a POWERHOUSE Authorized Dealer to make sure installation is done safely and in a way that maximizes the functionality of the product. Need a new roof? Why not make it one that pays for itself? POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles are a complete solar solution. Dow offers a total package that makes it easy to create and monitor your electricity. It includes a custom designed solar array that fits the homeowners goals and complements the homes style; an inverter that converts the Direct Current (DC) into Alternating Current (AC) to power the home; and a monitoring system that delivers real-time readouts showing how much energy your system is creating and how much your home is using. Made in the USA, POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles have the safety backing of Underwriters Laboratories (UL); are certified to withstand rain, hail and wind; and is backed by a 20 year warranty.
