During Tuesday's State of the Union address, President Obama told the story of Michigan roofers who are now manufacturing solar shingles thanks to a government loan. This made me think: I'm only slightly educated on the topic of photovoltaic shingles and since we'll be in the market for a new roof later this year, why not check out what Re-Nest has to say.

Re-Nest's resident Green Architect Rachel Wray has done a GREAT job of covering the topic of eco-friendly roofs over the past few years. Here is a round-up of those related articles by her and a few others.

While reading and clicking through the Internet, I also learned DOW Solar is launching a new roofing product in select markets in 2011. More information, pricing included, is to come.
