"Hammer & Nails" Style Solar Roof Tiles By SRS Energy

If the size and shape is similar to regular asphalt roofing tiles, if the product comes in a pallet like typical roofing material, can be installed without expensive equipment, and the result resembles what the neighbors have had for 25 years, you can be sure that the mainstreaming of residential solar photo-voltaic systems is right around the corner.

"... we deliver a product roofing distributors want to sell, roofers can install, and homeowners desire.

SRS roofing systems consist of Active tiles (electrically generating) and Inactive tiles (non-electric, visually identical to Active tiles). The majority of the roof is installed with traditional underlayment (water protection), battens, and Inactive tiles. Active tiles are plugged into connectors featured on the SRS Underlayment/ Batten sheet, installed in electrically generating portions of the roof.

The patented SRS connection system eliminates the complex system wiring normally found on solar roofs, and makes installing tiles with and without solar an easy "hammer and nails" process.

In addition to installing like traditional roofing, SRS tiles look and feel like traditional premium roofing as well. Unlike other solar modules or solar roofing tiles, SRS Active tiles are glass-free. SRS tiles are distributed on palettes, with the size and weight of typical roofing product.

This is the perfect suburban camouflage. Heck, the roofers won't even stop to wonder if their customers are dirty secularist hippies.
