Solar roof tiles

Solar roof tilesSolar roof tiles may be laid on top of existing roofing. They also may take the place of standard roof tiles. However, the specific brand and style of a solar tile will affect which uses are possible.

One of the major benefits of solar roof tiles is their ability to be smoothly incorporated into the design of a home. In fact, they fall under the category of BIPV technologies. This stands for building integrated photovoltaics.

Traditional solar panel mounting options are considered by most to be much less aesthetically pleasing than solar roof tiles. This is because they are often bolted onto the roof in large, bulky arrays. Another struggle faced by larger solar panel systems is their need of being firmly secured to the roof. Solar tiles, on the other hand, require no more damage be done to the roof than regular roof tiles.
