What are Solar Roof tiles?

The solar roof tile is made up of photovoltaic modules that are capable of being integrated into any standard roofing system. Solar roof tiles are connected by electrical sockets on their underside. This creates a single electrical unit, and therefore, an electric current. Basically, solar roof tiles use the sunís rays to absorb heat and generate electricity for your home or building.

Why Use Solar Power Roof Tiles?

At a time of global environment crisis and sky-rocketing electricity and energy bills, solar roof tiles could not be more called for. Solar power roof tiles are a technological development designed to reduce these bills (sometimes to only $5 a month!) and power your home or building. The output of solar roof tiles is enough to consistently heat all hot water, pools, and warm up the entire home. This is obviously an enormous financial saving. Although they can be somewhat expensive to purchase, installation is easy, and clay roof tiles have a guaranteed life expectancy of 25-30 years. So in the long run, this is actually a wise economic investment. Most solar panel roof tiles are made of polycarbonate, making them virtually indestructible. In Addition, solar roofing tiles allow for the saving of fossil fuels, a low m≤ cost, a replacement for heating systems, and an overall neat and modern looking roof.
