A solar solution that ticks all the right boxes.

More and more Australian homeowners are opting for solar energy solutions. And why not? With continually increasing electricity prices, smart homeowners want to be as independent as possible and reduce their energy bills into the future.

Monier SOLARtilesBy taking advantage of the large average roof areas of Australian homes and our perfect climate for solar power generation, many homeowners are doing just that.

However, there is one issue that makes people apprehensive about committing to solar energy at home. And that’s the look of traditional bolt-on solar panels. They just don’t integrate into the design and look of the house and tick that ‘aesthetic box’. Because solar panels are independently mounted on top of the roofing surface, they will always look out of place, ruining the lines and aesthetics of the roof and your home.

You’ll be glad to hear there is now a solution that ticks this final box – the Monier SOLARtile.

Monier SOLARtiles integrate seamlessly with your roof and appear just like roof tile, maintaining the roofline and aesthetics of your home. They are the first BIPV roofing product of their kind in Australia and have been designed specifically to maintain the look of your home and deliver high performance, clean, green energy.

On top of this aesthetic advantage, unlike traditional bolt-on solar systems, the impact on natural wind flow around the roof and debris build up is minimised with Monier SOLARtile. There is also no need to cut, grind or drill through the existing roof during installation and, being a tile based modular system, SOLARtiles can be installed in any configuration to fit your particular roof and energy requirements.

So, it is possible to maintain the beauty and look of your roof, with its clean lines, as well as deliver high performance, clean, green solar power, without the look of unsightly bolt-on solar panels.

Choosing Monier SOLARtile will result in a home that is great looking, energy efficient and sustainable into the future. Best of all, it will save you real money into the future as you reduce your energy bills.

As far as solar energy solutions go, Monier SOLARtile really ticks all the right boxes.
