Solar Homes Make Sense

Solar homes reduce your carbon footprint and make a financial return. Solar panels for a domestic property come in three forms; On-Roof Solar System, Roof-Integrated Solar System and Solar Tile System. An On-Roof system is positioning solar panels on top of the roof, sitting proud of the roof tiles. This installation method is predominantly used for retro-fitting solar panels to a roof.

A Roof-Integrated System, uses the same solar panels from an On-Roof system, but instead of sitting on top of the roof tiles, replaces the roof tiles to form a building-integrated solar panel. The panels sit integrated into the roof, sitting flush with the roof tiles. This does disrupt the eye line of the row of tiles.

A solar tile or a solar slate system, is a roof-integrated system, which keeps the horizontal line of the tiles. This gives the impression that the solar tiles are indeed part of the roof structure, and helps integrate the two products to increase the aesthetics of the roof. This is becoming the most popular form of pv used for solar homes.
