DOW POWERHOUSE™ Wins 2012 POPULAR MECHANICS Breakthrough Award

The DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle was recently honored as a recipient of a 2012 Breakthrough Award by POPULAR MECHANICS for pioneering an integrated solar roofing system that protects a home from the elements, while generating electricity to power it. The POPULAR MECHANICS Breakthrough Awards, now in their eighth year, uses this opportunity to salute the greatest innovations of 2012 as a celebration of world-changing ideas that will shape the future. POPULAR MECHANICS credits DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingles with creating the new benchmark for roof design and engineering in the U.S.

“POPULAR MECHANICS recognizes companies and people who use science and technology to improve our lives, which is the cornerstone of Dow’s mission,” said Jane Palmieri, Vice President of Dow Solar. “It is an honor to be acknowledged for our work in creating a solar roofing system that allows homeowners to rethink what they should expect from their roof. In the spirit of this award, POWERHOUSE is truly game-changing.”

The DOW POWERHOUSE Solar Shingle System is reinventing the roof by integrating solar functionality directly into a residential roofing product. It performs just like conventional shingles to protect a home, with the added benefit of generating electricity to offset utility bills. It turns this typically passive part of the home into an active source of value and clean energy generation, without compromise to the home’s aesthetics.

“We are once again excited to recognize this year’s list of incredible honorees for their role in shaping the future,” says James B. Meigs, editor-in-chief of POPULAR MECHANICS. “From a featherweight metal to the world’s fastest and most electrically efficient supercomputer, this year’s winners embody the creative spirit that the Breakthrough Awards were founded upon.”

Also honored with a POPULAR MECHANICS Breakthrough Leadership Award was Elon Musk, the visionary behind PayPal, Tesla Motors and Spacex. He was recognized for reinvigorating the American space program and breathing life into the electric car market. A full list of winners will be highlighted in the November issue of the magazine, and can be found here.

Now available in Central Texas, Northern California and Colorado through select Authorized Dealers and Builders, the POWERHOUSE Solar Shingle will be expanding availability in U.S. markets later this year.
