When it comes to roofs and energy efficiency, one of the first thing that crosses our mind is the photovoltaic technology, which represents the most innovative trend.
The newest version of a solar roof has a structure made of solar tiles combined with ordinary tiles. This type of roof is designed to provide energy autonomy to a home, the sunlight being transformed into electricity stored in batteries. The price of such a roof with an area of about 185 square meters is about $34,000.
New versions of solar roofs are called solar glass roofs, and experts estimate that more and more people will have them installed on their homes. Solar glass roofs are made of tempered glass and not all shingles are solar, but they are complemented by regular shingles, identical in shape and aspect, to create a nice visual symmetry. The size and feed capacity of solar shingles has increased, thus reducing the number of parts required for the installation.
If you opt for such a roof, the manufacturers promise that you will benefit from significant savings, and the roof will be guaranteed to generate energy for at least 25 years. Manufacturers of solar roofs are already picturing a future in which solar roofs will be dominant ad regular roofs will remain merely an exception.
