A roof integrated solar tile system to develop cost-effective distributed solar power generation.
There is an increasing global need to reduce dependence on fossil fuels as a resource and convert to renewable production of energy. Traditional solar installations require large amounts of material, equipment and labour resulting in unattractive systems and a poor market adoption.
Soltiles’ innovative business project aims to significantly accelerate the uptake of solar power for individual properties whilst disrupting the existing model of utility scale central power generation. The Soltiles solution offers an efficient and reliable solution to residential solar power whilst maintaining the aesthetics of the property. For homeowners, the tiles generate enough power to attain self-sufficiency. The moulded tile is installed like a standard roofing tile by roofing contractors. The patented product is unique by incorporating both crystalline and thin film technology improving flexibility and versatility of the substrate
