Shingles that Qualify for a Tax Credit

The list that follows is our attempt to create a comprehensive list of shingles that appear to qualify for the (maximum) $1500 2010 Energy Tax Credit. We generated this list by looking at EnergyStar-qualified shingles whose manufacturers provide a Manufacturers' Certification Statement claiming that their shingles qualify.
