SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC ROOFING
Building Integrated Photovoltaic Roofing
A unique, cost-effective and affordable building integrated solar photovoltaic roofing system that transforms the complete roof of a house into an effective power generation system. A standard Solar Shingle Canada PV system provides sufficient power to supply all the needs of a typical Canadian home. A Solar Shingle Canada system can help any off-grid house or structure to become energy independent. In addition, Solar Shingle Canada systems qualify for participation in the generous Feed-In-Tariff system administered in Ontario by IESO.
• An attractive, cost-efficient, permanent alternative to traditional rack mounted solar panels.
• Effectively generates sufficient power for a typical Canadian home.
• Attractive design complements any house design or existing roofing finish.
• Solid steel construction of roof shingles ensures that roofing will last for many years.
• Does not require expensive and unsightly solar panel racking system.
• Produces power all year round even during Canada’s long cold snowy winters.
• Produces large volumes of power with no ongoing energy costs – sunshine is free!
• Reliable alternative to diesel power generation in off-grid locations.
• Environmentally friendly, operates without generating any Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.
• Designed in Canada for years of continuous uninterrupted use in cold Canadian weather.
Solar Shingle Canada integrated solar photovoltaic roofing systems are installed in many locations across Canada and internationally. The following are some of the applications for this technology:
• New and Existing Single Family Homes
• Farm Houses, Barns and Other Rural Structures
• Cottages and Other Off-Grid Houses
• Buildings in Areas with Unstable or Unreliable Power Supply
• Remote First Nation Homes, Facilities and Communities
• Mines, Forestry Plants and Other Resource Processing Facilities
• National, Provincial and Municipal Parks
• Fishing and Hunting Lodges
• Remote Scientific Stations, Coast Guard Stations and Defence Facilities
• Apartments, Student Residences, Co-ops and Public Housing Buildings
• Hospitals, Assisted Living and Long Term Care Facilities
• Hotels, Restaurants and Other Commercial Facilities
• Transforms entire roof, or any desired section, into a power generator.
• Can be installed on any pitched angle roof, which includes most houses, cottages and rural structures.
• Unique modular design – can be shipped easily, and assembled wherever required.
• Photovoltaic power is the ultimate in Green Energy – producing power directly from the energy of the sun.
• High photoelectric conversion efficiency.
• With the exception of final power connection, can be installed by any qualified roofing contractor.
• Does not require any roof penetrations, minimizing the likelihood of roof leakage.
• Smart ventilation system beneath tiles reduces summer heat build up.
