Solar panels on tiles

More and more solar panels are designed with the largest number of houses in the world in mind, solar tiles seem to be a perfect solution.

One of the downsides of solar panels so far has been aesthetics. This aesthetic which in some cases prevents people from using solar panels.

For those of us who are fully aware of the importance of generating clean energy, aesthetics is an issue that takes second or third place. But for a part of the population, not as well informed or aware of the importance or the impact of renewable energies in our society, aesthetics are an important point in the decision to install or not solar panels on their home. roof. Fortunately, more and more companies are developing and designing solutions to “aesthetically” integrate solar panels on the roofs, one of the last Tesla with its rooftop with integrated solar cells.

Today we are talking about the Dutch company ZEP BV, which has developed photovoltaic solar panels integrated into ceramic tiles. Aware of this need, he developed an alternative. ZEP BV has developed a more aesthetic alternative: solar panels that are integrated into tiles or ceramic tiles, and can be easily installed on the roofs of houses.

These solar tiles are dark blue or black, the best colors to absorb most of the visible light spectrum. The greater the amount of light absorbed, the greater the amount of energy generated.

Its dimensions are 487 x 296 mm (approximately 19 x 12 inches), they incorporate monocrystalline solar cells (9 W) of 156 x 156 mm (approximately 6 x 6 inches).

The efficiency of these solar tiles is almost the same as that of conventional solar panels. We are talking about a product with an efficiency of 18.49%.
