Solar panels are like a not-so-fashionable hat. They attach to your existing roof as a separate apparatus. On the other hand, solar shingles are more like a sustainable blanket or in some cases, they are your actual roof.

But there’s interesting solar tile and shingle competitions out there, like the solar roof shingles from GAF Energy that made a splash at CES 2022.

Matt explores what he calls “the solar roof product problem”.
