Solar Roof Shingles
Solar roof shingles are an integrated solar roofing solution. The best solar shingles are an innovative, aesthetically superior option to standard solar PV panels. They serve dual functions: generate electricity and serve as a roof covering. Despite being relatively new to the market, the underlying technology is the same as solar PV panels. It is reliable and durable. Solar roof shingles are just one unique benefit of going solar.
Solar roof shingles are very lightweight with no need for structural reinforcements or analysis. The solar shingles are installed directly onto the roof, requiring no roof penetrations or racking, and provide an ultra-smooth low-profile design. Due to their lightweight and small dimensions, solar panel shingles can be installed to take advantage of the available roof space. In many cases, shingles provide 90% coverage, even on irregular roofs. Solar panel shingles are also more cost-effective in comparison to solar panels.
Each solar shingle is rated at 14.7% efficiency and consists of multiple monocrystalline cells that provide 60 watts of power. Solar shingles come with a 25-year power warranty.
