Ergosun has created an integral solution by combining solar photovoltaic (PV) systems with roofing materials to create integrated solar PV roof tiles. These solar roof tiles are aesthetically pleasing and can fit perfectly into the roof. They are easy to install and do not require any additional drilling, being ready-to-install products with an easy plug-and-play model. The tiles are integrated with solar modules, junction boxes and MC4 connectors, and they can be directly connected to the inverter. This reduces installation expenses considerably.
Each solar roof tile is like an individual solar PV panel that can produce 15 W of peak power and reportedly perform well even in low light. In case of a fault, an individual tile can be replaced without any impact on the solar PV system or the roof. Moreover, the tiles can withstand extreme weather conditions of wind, rain, snow and hail, as well as high physical loads, including the weight of the installer or maintenance personnel.
