Glenbrook Lumber is now offering EnerGen Solar Photovoltaic Panel Systems to the Minnesota and Western Wisconsin market. CertainTeed’s EnerGen Photovoltaic roofing system is a thin-film laminate that lies flush with traditional roofing shingles and is easier to install than traditional panel designs (See Video Click Here: http://youtu.be/PbEFc4cLXIU)
“By seamlessly integrating flush with traditional roofing shingles, CertainTeed is the first major roofing manufacturer to mainstream solar panel energy, taking it out of the niche market” said Brett Moran, Solar Sales Manager CertainTeed Corporation, “EnerGen is specifically designed with building professionals and conventional roofing contractors in mind, offering ease of installation for residential or commercial properties.”
“Typical raised panel and steel framed solar systems fall short of integrating into the an architecturally correct building design”, said Geoffrey Warner, Founder of Alchemy Architects, “The EnerGen panel solar system lays flat with the roof structure keeping the functionality of our weeHouse designs.”
“Glenbrook is excited to offer CertainTeed’s solar application as one of the best values for residents in Minnesota and Wisconsin” said Gene Heger, President of Glenbrook Lumber, “Combined with Federal, State and local solar energy rebates of more than 30%, CertainTeed protects the purchaser’s investment with a unique multi level warranty covering performance, materials, wind damage and workmanship up to 25 years.”
EnerGen systems are available in 14 pre-engineered kits ranging from 1.496 kw to 3.468 kw. Alchemy’s weeHouse solar integration designed for Minnesota and Wisconsin is available with consumer design input. With energy costs increasing at 3% to 5% per year, solar rebates exceeding 30% for new purchases and now, CertainTeed’s integrated roof system design consumers have a strong reasons to invest in solar energy.
Alchemy Architects’ mission is to make stimulating, engaging, and efficient design accessible and affordable for a wide audience. We are home to the weeHouse, a contemporary, modular, prefabricated structure appropriate for commercial and residential use.
Our distinctive hands-on approach to architecture and design combines a playful design process, collaborative relationships with clients, partnerships with builders and fabricators to create a harmonious blend of site, building, and community. With sustainable practices as a mainstay of our daily work, Alchemy utilizes recycling and reuse along with building strategies that reduce waste. Our multidisciplinary team draws inspiration from art, literature, history, and leading creative thinkers to create alternative and atypical project solutions. Alchemy’s innovation on the weeHouse prefab system and “tightwad panache” renovations has gained recognition on an international scale.
