Solar Roof Tiles: What Are They?

Solar roof tiles are a relatively new development in solar panel technology. They are small pv modules designed to replace existing roof tiles. When aesthetics are paramount, they are a great option, but there are some things you need to consider

Your Roof

Solar Roof Tiles aren’t necessarily the best option if you’re looking to just invest in solar panels and your roof is in good shape. They are best considered if you’re thinking about replacing your roof or doing a renovation, or where you’re building a new property entirely.

Your Budget

Solar Tiles are a very aesthetically pleasing option, but they come at quite a premium. You could potentially be looking at spending much, much more on a solar tile system than with a traditional, roof-mounted system.

Your Energy Needs

Solar Tiles are less efficient than a traditional solar panel, so won’t generate as much energy as the same amount of space taken up by a roof mounted system

Your Options

Solar Tiles are a relatively new technology, which contributes to their premium pricing. There are only a small handful of companies that manufacture them so competition is low and costs are high.

Companies that manufacture solar tiles include: Tesla, Solecco and GB Sol

Your Installation

A standard roof mounted solar system can be installed in a single day. In comparison, a Solar Tile system can take several weeks to install

The Takeaway

Solar Tiles can be a fantastic way to enjoy the benefits of solar power while having minimal impact to the overall look of your property. If the aesthetics are the most important aspect for you, and you don’t mind paying the extra cost for those aesthetics, solar tiles might be a great option for you.

If your aim is to cut your energy bills and carbon footprint, a standard system might be your best option.
