The Complete Solar Roof from SolarCentury


SolarCentury has designed the "Complete Solar Roof" that integrates solar electric and solar thermal technologies in a tile that is installed like a conventional roofing tile. The tiles, designed to sit flush with the building's roof structure, generate both power and heat from sunlight. The Complete Solar Roof is part of SolarCentury's line of Low Carbon Building Products, which aim to integrate solar energy into standard construction practices, and will be officially unveiled at Interbuild 2006, the UK building trade show in Birmingham from April 23 - 27. SolarCentury says they have helped more businesses, homes and local authorities go solar than anyone else in the UK, and their work was included in the Department of Trade and Industry's ten best green energy projects that began generating electricity in 2005.
