Roof tiles as solar power systems
Solar power systems are becoming increasingly popular. Because the future belongs to renewables, especially electricity from sunlight. It’s hard to miss the large-scale photovoltaic modules you see perched on top of many roofs.
But this doesn’t have to be the case: the autarq manufacturing company from Germany offers solar roof tiles as an alternative. autarq solar tiles are the choice when, in addition to producing your own electricity, good taste is also on the wish list. This is because these small-format solar roof tiles can be harmoniously integrated into the overall appearance of any roof; they can hardly be distinguished from original tiles.
autarq solar roof tiles are specially manufactured to match the existing roof tiles and are bonded together with the solar modules to form robust components. The longevity corresponds to that of the original tiles, while the water drainage and impermeability are maintained.
No changes are necessary to the roof itself: The weight is approximately the same as the original tile, the roof’s structural load-bearing capacity is not impaired, and the cables and plug contacts lie under the roof cladding and are therefore protected against the weather. In combination with the non-hazardous, protective extra-low voltage, autarq therefore offers the ideal product for renovation and new-build schemes.
In contrast to large-scale modules, the autarq system is also immune to shading thanks to the parallel connections. Skylights, chimneys, ventilation pipes or TV aerials have little impact on the installation and operation of such systems. And apart from the north side, every square metre of a house roof can be used to generate electricity, 30-40 square metres are often enough to generate 70 per cent of the electricity requirements.
autarq offers the complete system solution for this. All the data is determined on site, a needs analysis is carried out, and a bespoke quote is then made for the custom-made solar roof tiles, cabling, power storage, inverter and energy manager.
The roofer installs the solar roof tiles, lays the cable harnesses and then integrates the new solar roof tiles with the remaining roof tiles. The electrical work in the house is carried out independently of the installation work on the roof.
The favourable returns on your investment in terms of the benefits, aesthetics, safety and durability are reasons why increasingly more home owners are choosing autarq solar roof tiles.
In addition, autarq offers 5-year all-risks insurance and a 25-year performance guarantee.
This aesthetically pleasing and safe energy concept also meets the increased requirements for energy efficient buildings and facilitates access to favourable loans and subsidies through EU funds or the KfW Bank.
Supplying energy from your own roof instead of buying electricity is increasingly topping the wish list of house builders. It’s hard to miss the large-scale photovoltaic modules you see perched on top of many roofs But it can also be done almost invisibly: As an alternative, autarq solar tiles offer a smart roof that particularly emphasizes the value of the house. And the non-hazardous low voltage (< 120 V) even enables the solar power system to be installed in a single step when the roof is covered by the roofer – the ideal product for renovation and new-build schemes. < No changes are necessary to the roof itself: The weight is approximately the same as the original tile, the roof’s structural load-bearing capacity is not impaired, and the cables and plug contacts lie under the roof cladding and are therefore protected against the weather. 40 square metres of roof space are often sufficient to generate enough electricity for self-consumption in the house. And: autarq offers the individual and complete system solution.
