Slim Solar Panels | CertainTeed

August 24, 2015
This article first appeared in the PB August 2015 issue of Pro Builder.

The Apollo II Solar Roofing System from CertainTeed seamlessly integrates with roofing shingles and comes in pre-engineered kits for easy installation. Each slim 12-pound module features 14 high-efficiency monocrystalline silicon solar cells with a power rating of 60 watts per module. The low-profile design requires no structural reinforcement, and an open space under the modules allows for easy wiring. Water channels and raised fastener locations improve waterproofing. Apollo II systems are Class A fire-rated and meet UL 790, UL 1703, and IEC 61215 requirements. They can handle wind resistance up to 110 mph and loads up to 250 pounds per square foot.
