Innovation is at the core of CSR, especially in the field of renewable energy, and the Monier SOLARtile delivers a green solution with excellent design and aesthetic appeal to the market.
Solar panels have been around for many years, however they have been somewhat unsightly in design. Now homeowners can take advantage of the latest PV technology to convert sunlight into electricity with an integrated design. The Monier SOLARtile is especially appealing as it blends in with the roof, providing a significant difference to the look of a solar-powered house.
Developed specifically to work seamlessly with Monier’s range of flat profiled concrete tiles, Monier's SOLARtile is a truly innovative product. As a tile-based modular system, it is able to capitalise on smaller roof sections to optimise the energy production.
Monier SOLARtiles are lighter than concrete roof tiles, so there is no need to strengthen trusses. Unlike traditional bolt-on solar systems, the SOLARtile minimises the impact on wind flow around the roof, making wind loadings a thing of the past. Plus, there is no need to cut, grind or drill through the existing roof during installation.
A roof offers various opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of a house. In particular, roof tiles can assist in keeping homes cool in summer, and with the Monier SOLARtile, they can also harness the sun's rays to provide power. Photovoltaic cell systems have long held environmental and cost-saving benefits, and can now generate solar power on a roof, all the while appealing to the eye.
