With These Glass Tiles Your Roof Can Generate Electricity

SolTech glass roof tiles work to allow light and heat into your home while also generating energy. Energy is generated by the solar cells fitted underneath the tiles.

Combining solar photovoltaic-panels and food-crops for optimizing land use and energy economics

Whether you're fine with solar panels and how they look or not, you really need to read about these new solar shingles. They're revolutionizing the way we're going to build roofs as a nation. I don't think it will be too far in the future until every house is outifitted with some sort of solar energy system. It's necessary with the damage and decline of fossil fuels. Which do you like better? Panels or shingles?

The solar panel is of the “hybrid” variety because it does two jobs at the same time. The product, called Virtu, can generate both electricity and hot water simultaneously. The company believes that with Virtu they have invented the right design and process to achieve an effective thermal transfer system.
