Romag’s first installation of its highly innovative ‘Intecto’ solar roof tile is almost complete. The installation is being undertaken in conjunction with Gentoo Homes at their site in Beechbrooke, South Shields, Tyne and Wear. The Intecto integrated solar tile has been designed with aesthetics in mind and blends seamlessly with terracotta, concrete and clay tiles. It also comes in black, grey and brown and can be tailored to work with almost all existing tiling systems. The tiles use the same PV cells found in the British manufacturer’s existing range of PV panels, but the cells have been specially manufactured to colour-match the UK’s range of terracotta roof tiles. This means that house builders no longer need to compromise on the look of their new housing to prospective customers when incorporating desirable solar technology.
