There are some misguided souls who believe that clean roof-lines are more important than sustainable power generation. But we'd all be silly to think that someday we won't have both. And, if you have enough money, that someday could be today.
SRS Energy has developed roofing tiles that mimic Tuscan terracotta roofing tiles but contain amorphous silicon solar cells produced by Uni-Solar. The solar tiles are extremely durable, work in a variety of temperature ranges, and link in specifically with tiles from US Tile. The result is a stunning, seamless blend of dark solar tiles and traditionally colored clay tiles.
The solar tiles generate a peak of 500 watts per 100 square feet. So you'll be getting less power for more money than if you installed a traditional south-facing, roof-mounted panel, but incorporating this technology so elegantly into the design of the building with be worth a lot of money to a lot of people.
