Solar roof tiles are fast becoming an attractive option for homeowners looking to go greener with renewable energy solar PV systems.

The biggest attraction with solar roof tiles is the visual effect! Unlike traditional solar panels which can be seen fitted over the top of the existing roof tiles.

Solar roof tiles provide homeowners with the option to install a solar PV system without the eye soar of traditional solar panels that can be seen from the ground when looking at your roof.

Why choose solar roof tiles over solar panels

For many households the idea of having large solar panels installed can be off putting when compared with solar roof tiles.

Solar roof tiles perfectly integrate with the roof tiles making them virtually invisible to the naked eye.

This makes them the perfect solution for homeowners living in a conservation area or a listed building.

Where planning permission for traditional solar panels can be rejected, it is much more likely to be passed with solar roof tiles.

Although we would urge homeowners to check with their local authority before making any final purchase.

How much can you save on energy bills with solar roof tiles?

Solar roof tiles can make significant reductions to your energy bills over time.

The exact amount is hard to predict as there are many factors to take into consideration.

Although they are not quite as efficient as traditional solar panels and can be expensive to purchase in the first place.

The life span of solar roof tiles can be up to 45 years when compared with solar panels that normally need to be replaced every 12 to 15 years.

This is because solar roof tiles are more durable than even standard roof tiles. Meaning that over time solar roof tiles are actually cheaper than traditional solar panels.
Making them more attractive to homeowners than ever before.
