Peter Bressler of the BresslerGroup is an old friend and incredible designer. His last great product, the Vocal Smoke Detector allowed mothers and fathers to record their own voices to wake sleeping children. Brilliant.
Now Peter has developed a new way to tap solar energy for your house without putting up ugly solar panels—build photovoltaic roof tiles that are beautiful. A spin-off of the Bressler Group, SRS Energy, is commercializing these tiles. CertainTeed, a Valley Forge, Pa., building products manufacturer is partnering with SRS Energy, to begin producing them.
This could be a huge opportunity for Peter, SRS Energy, CertainTeed and the country.
