Solar Roof Tiles

Compare solar tile costs

One way that alternative energy is becoming more affordable is with the use of solar roof tiles. Homeowners who want to maintain the aesthetics of their home while also saving money on their energy bill may want to consider them over traditional solar panels. They're becoming more affordable all the time, and you could even qualify for tax incentives simply by having them installed.

Solar panel roof tiles somewhat resemble traditional shingles, and are placed on a roof in much the same manner. They contain photovoltaic cells that turn sunlight into energy that can be used for heating, cooking or a number of other functions. They also provide protection from the elements much like traditional shingles do. As a result, many people are considering them as a replacement for their asphalt shingles whenever it comes time to replace their existing roof.

Solar Roof Tile Costs

Average solar tile prices depend on the size and pitch of the roof they are being installed on. The price will also be higher if existing shingles need to be removed before they are placed. When choosing solar tiles over asphalt shingles, many people just might find that they are very affordable when considering what the cost of a roof would have been anyway. When you factor in the energy savings and tax incentives, they could actually wind up being more cost-effective in the long run than asphalt shingles.

Your solar roof tile questions answered

How much do solar roof tiles cost?

That will depend on the size of the home. Most solar roof tile installations will start at about £12,000 but this will vary based on the size and age of the house, among a number of other variables.

Are solar roof tiles better than solar panels?

One is not necessarily better than the other, as both are about equal in energy conversion efficiency and cost. The main difference is installation because installing solar roof tiles requires replacing the entire roof, where solar panels can be bolted on to already existing structures.

How long does it take to install solar roof tiles?

Solar roof tiles, once installed, will rest on top of your existing roof tiles. Depending on the overall size of the installation, it can be completed in as little as a few hours. Larger installations can take a day or more.

What is the potential energy output of these tiles?

A standard solar panel installation will generally generate 4kWp. The largest solar roof tile installation to date currently generates up to 18kWp. While a home tile installation will be smaller, it still has the potential to generate 8-10kWp.

What are the advantages of solar roof tiles vs. panels?

Solar roof tiles provide a less bulky appearance, and are therefore ideal for anyone who is concerned with aesthetics. It is also more economical to replace a single solar roof tile instead of a much larger panel should one ever malfunction.
