Solar Slates - Why You Need Them for Your Roof

Sunday, 30 October 2016  |  Admin

Well... good news for the aesthetics of your house, SOLAR Tiles/Slates for your roof. Lets face it, we and I'm sure you too have thought that though the solar panels are a good Eco idea but lousy when just plonked onto the roof as many are.

Tesla who have designed the very desirable Electric Hybrid Car have now come up with this and though it is a little premature at the moment but should be readily available in 2017. We know initially it will be expensive but over time it will come down as more companies bring their own versions onto the market and sales increase all round.

By incorporating solar modules into rooftops, Tesla is hoping to succeed with a solar technology that to date has had little success.

The company surprised everyone with not only one solar roof, but several new solar roof options, including designs that look like Textured Glass Tile, Slate Glass Tile, Tuscan Glass Tile, and Smooth Glass Tile.

Some of the options look opaque from a street angle and transparent from a birdseye view – aka the sun’s view. That’s what enables the roof to look nothing like solar, but for the solar cells to still capture solar energy from sunlight.
