SunTegra, a leading provider of solar roof systems, today announced that they have started production of their solar shingle products at 27 Link Drive in Binghamton, NY. The shingles offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional roof-mounted solar panels and can already be found on homes across the country. SunTegra will use its new facility as a main office supporting administration, sales, R&D, and to ramp up production to meet increasing demand.
“We are delighted to be moving our business to the Binghamton area,” says CEO Oliver Koehler. “Binghamton offers access to great technical expertise, has talented labor and features a robust network of regional suppliers. We see Binghamton as a great platform from which to grow our business nationally.”
Originally based in Highland, NY, SunTegra was a winner of the 2017 76West Clean Energy Competition, which is how they initially learned of the resources Binghamton offered. In that year, they joined the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator, gaining mentorship and guidance from subject matter experts.
“Bringing innovative companies to the Binghamton area is what the Koffman Southern Tier incubator is all about,” says Mike Jagielski, Clean Energy Program Director. “SunTegra’s patented solar roofing products offer consumers an alternative to bulky solar panels, compete head to head with Tesla’s solar roof products and are the type of technology that will help clean energy go mainstream.”
SunTegra has hired initial assembly and operations staff to restart the production of its products and plans to expand hiring in the new year.
