In addition to its recently secured financing agreements, OneRoof Energy announces new partnerships with CertainTeed and Integrated Electrical Services (IES), making the company the first to offer a complete single-source roofing and solar solution. These partnerships differentiate OneRoof Energy’s business model from any other solar entity in the U.S. OneRoof Energy’s collaboration with CertainTeed, North America’s leading brand of exterior and interior building and solar products, will help efficiently address the bureaucratic process that often increases the cost of solar for customers.
OneRoof Energy will leverage CertainTeed’s sales force, training and brand strength to bring solar financing to an entirely new channel, builders and roofers. CertainTeed offers training programs to teach roofing contractors the skills needed to be successful in the solar roofing market, including: how to install photovoltaic roofing systems, marketing themselves as a solar roofer, and how to sell solar roofing.
CertainTeed, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain, the world’s largest sustainable building products company, also supplies the solar products and provides permitting, design services and rebate and incentive processing for OneRoof and CertainTeed’s roofing customers. A key component of the solution for CertainTeed’s channel of roofing contractors is the ability to offer OneRoof Energy’s SolarSelect Lease.
“Offering a complete roofing and solar solution with OneRoof Energy simplifies the process of going solar for our customers,” said Mark Stancroff, head of CertainTeed Solar. “It’s critical to have a financing solution for our PV products, and OneRoof Energy brings that to the table for us.”
OneRoof Energy CEO and founder David Field adds, “CertainTeed provides us access to an existing deep roofing channel, and this partnership truly is the first of its kind to combine solar and roofing systems with a simple lease program. We now have the opportunity to easily deliver aesthetically pleasing solar to the four million roofs that are installed every year in the U.S.”
