California — GAF Energy has leased and begun improvements on a 112,000-square-foot facility in San Jose, California.

Once construction is complete, the new facility will serve as the company’s center for research and development and manufacturing, bringing traditionally off-shored solar manufacturing to the U.S.

The buildout of the property and its ongoing operations will result in hundreds of U.S.-based, clean energy manufacturing jobs and a solar roof product that is made in America. As part of Standard Industries and a sister company to GAF, GAF Energy brings roofing manufacturing and R&D expertise to the solar industry.

“Driving the next generation of solar innovation is a top priority for our business—and we’re proud to be making this investment here in the U.S.,” said David Millstone and David Winter, co-CEOs of Standard Industries.

“Solar roofing is the future of the industry,” said Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy.

GAF Energy says it designed its current product to provide a low-profile alternative to rack-mounted solar panels, which are typically drilled through the roof’s shingles.
