Solar Shingle First in Fairfield County

The Shore Road Project features another "first", being the first installation of Dow Powerhouse Solar Roof Shingles in Fairfield County. The Shore Road project is a new 2,700sf single family home located at 15 Shore Road in Old Greenwich, CT.


The 4.5 Kw system replaces over 600 SF of conventional roofing because the solar shingles ARE the roof.  Installed by Murphy Brothers Contracting and Matthew Roofing Company under the watchful eye of Dow Field Rep, Adam Sollner, the solar array not only compliments the home's attractive design, it will provide solar-generated electricity to the custom coastal colonial home, roughly half of its daily usage.


Designed by local architect Rex Gedney, the Shore Road Project also features the following:

  • Fully insulated concrete form (ICF) exterior wall construction
  • Closed-cell spray foam insulation where essential
  • Blue Jean insulation for Sound attenuation
  • Super energy-efficient air-source heat pump w/ ERV system
  • Water-saving plumbing fixtures and appliances
  • Instantaneous hot water unit (on-demand)
  • Energy-efficient Marvin & Andersen windows and doors

Murphy Brothers Contracting recently announced their partnership with DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles as authorized dealer/installers in the Westchester Hudson Valley region and southern Fairfield County.  Solar Shingles differ from conventional solar panel systems in that they aren't on the roof, they actually are the roof.  Solar Shingles provide the same protection, durability and flexibility as asphalt, cedar or slate shingles. Visually appealing, they are designed to blend with standard roofs and normal home construction.  This is an excellent option for folks who want to take advantage of the environmental opportunity offered by sun's clean abundant energy plus the financially attractive government sponsored tax incentives, but are turned off by the unsightly look of conventional solar panel systems.
