SunTegra Teams Up With Brookside Development To Offer “Solar Roofs” in Connecticut

First Installation Receives "The Best Green Energy Efficient Home" Award in the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut's 2016 Home Building Industry Awards

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. - November 22, 2016— SunTegra (formerly known as Integrated Solar Technology or IST), a leading provider of integrated solar roof systems, today announced a partnership with Brookside Development, a leading Green Home Builder based in Woodbridge, CT. With this partnership, Brookside Development has begun offering the SunTegra® Shingle and Tile products to its customers.


"We are thrilled to be working with Brookside because of their reputation and breadth of expertise offering homeowners the best experience in new construction," said Mark Paille, Director of Sales at SunTegra. "Brookside Development has built up an impressive reputation for Green Building and has offered other roof-integrated solar solutions like the Dow POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles. We are excited to help them further strengthen their competitive offering with SunTegra."

Brookside Development and SunTegra currently have projects installed in the Singer Village Subdivision at 5 Singer Village Drive, in Derby, CT. This home has recently been awarded "The Best Green Energy Efficient Home" and Singer Village has been named "The Best Green Energy Efficient Single Family Community" by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut's Home Building Industry Awards for 2016.

As a full-service Green Builder, Brookside Development offers homeowners a start-to-finish solution for all their new home needs. The company's ability to offer a roof-integrated solar shingle has put them in a unique position in the market. Whereas other contractors provide strictly traditional roofing, Brookside Development stands out against the competition by offering homeowners the ability to combine their roofing and solar into one seamless installation, saving them money and giving them the preferred aesthetics of a roof-integrated solar solution.

"We have developed our solar program to the point where it has become a staple in our offering," said Mark Nuzzolo, owner of Brookside Development. "Solar is important for our communities, our company's mission, and of course for our homeowners. When homeowners call looking to build, we can educate them about what solar shingles are, what they can do for them, and give them all the tools they need to determine whether a solar roof is right for them."

SunTegra® Shingle and SunTegra® Tile solutions offer homeowners a viable and cost-effective way to seamlessly integrate solar into their roofs. SunTegra products attach directly to roof decking or battens, and function both as a solar panel and a roofing material. Both products are UL 1703 certified and carry a Class A fire rating.

Featured Product

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
