- Solar Roof Tiles
A Solar Roof Tile is a roof tile engineered to function as a roof tile and also as a solar panel at the same time. This way the 'look' of the roof is not adversely impacted by a separate set of solar panels and existing roofing structures can be used to support the new tiles.
The downside with such an approach is that you have no ability to adjust the solar alignment of the tiles to better harness the Sun. News & Blog articles where 'solar roof tiles' used:
