Solar roofing 20 May, 2008

Lumeta has developed solar roofing that can be installed in just half an hour. It’s a clever idea: photovoltaic tiles that integrate into an existing roof.

For residential applications, Lumeta offers both integrated S tile and Flat Tile solar products, as well as asphalt shingle roof systems for home builders.

Lumeta’s larger photovoltaic module – the PowerPly 380 – is intended for commercial applications. Triplepundit has an interesting video of a PowerPly installation (it’s fast): “Peel & stick solar fulfills the need … for speed!

Installing regular photovoltaic panels can difficult in two ways: it’s a cumbersome process, and large solar panels tend to stand out from the overall house architecture (a photovoltaic eyesore, if you will). So the idea of integrating a solar panel installation with existing roofing makes serious sense.

Indeed, the future looks bright for Lumeta.
