Texas — GAF Energy announced a new 450,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas to meet demand for its Timberline Solar™ roof.

GAF says the new facility, its second, will increase capacity by 500% and bring total production of its solar shingle to 300 megawatts annually, making it the world’s largest producer of solar roofing.

“The response from both consumers and roofers to our Timberline Solar roof has been tremendous, and we’re thrilled to be expanding capacity to meet that growing demand,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “Georgetown has a long track record as a clean energy leader, so it is the perfect home for us to build the future of solar.”

“We are pleased GAF Energy selected Georgetown as their destination for their facility,” Georgetown Mayor Josh Schroeder said. “Their innovative product will change the market as we know it, and we are excited that it will be developed here in our backyard.”

Once complete, the Georgetown manufacturing facility will result in hundreds of new U.S.-based, clean energy manufacturing jobs and build on GAF Energy’s track record of delivering a best-in-class solar roof product assembled in America.

GAF Energy’s first manufacturing facility in San Jose, California, was completed and began production last year.
