Your dwelling is a reflection of your personality, so what better way to show your concern for the environment. Gift your home with terracotta roofing tiles that will not only enhance the aesthetics, but will also cut down on your electricity bills. Dubbed the “Tegolasolare”, these terracotta tiles come equipped with built-in solar panels. The tiles aim to make your energy bill more manageable and reduce your energy footprint.
The tiles measure 46 x 46cm and the solar panels are monocrystaline 29 x 29cm units. All you have to do is install outfit your roof with these tile and let the wires for the panels be run together into a junction box. Each tile is capable of generating 11 Wp, which means if a roof has 40 square tiles nearly 3kW of power can be produced. Although, the energy produced will not meet with the average home’s energy needs, but is sure to make a decent saving.
