Dow Chemical Company, Oct. 5, 2009 Solar shingle are just that: shingles similar to roofing shingles on most homes. Except these shingles are photovoltaic and produce electricity, like solar panels. While solar shingles (versus panels) have been around for awhile, there does not appear to be many if any big-name manufacturers producing them. Enter Dow Chemical. In October of this year, Dow unveiled its "Powerhouse" Solar Shingles, which can be integrated into a home's array of asphalt roofing shingles. Dow anticipates having a limited supply available in 2010, with a larger supply coming in 2011. Dow has invested $50 million in a photovoltaic facility at the company's 1,900-acre complex in Michigan, a sign that big players like Dow recognize that solar is here to stay..... and is a good business move from an industry's perspective. So what does this mean for consumers?
