Dow Powerhouse Solar ShinglesMurphy Brothers Contracting is pleased to announce their partnership with DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles as authorized dealer/installers in the Westchester Hudson Valley region and southern Fairfield County.

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.

DOW POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingles benefits are as follows:

  • Complements the design and roofline of any home
  • Protects the home while providing energy and savings
  • Offers a monitoring system to watch and manage electricity usage
  • Made in USA and virtually maintenance-free
