Solar Roof is like shingles roof but they produce Electricity from sun rays and these shingles are called solar shingles or you can say photovoltaic Shingles and they literally looks like and also function roofing shingles or slates and also producing electricity at the same time. And these are also known as BIPV(building-integrated photovoltaics). And you are thinking that it might generate less electricity then solar panels but no they are very good but they might be expensive than the traditional solar panels but there are different prices in other companies.

Solar Shingles are produced by several companies and the famous companies includes Tesla, SolarCity, CertainTeed, Suntegra, Luma Solar Roof, RGS POWERHOUSE 3.0, Exasun, Hanenergy HanTile and Sunflare

Benefits

Your House will be fully environment friendly in summers and it literally saves the planet and if you are doing this you are stopping global warming and if you don't know the electricity you pay for is generated using coal and nuclear energy and its bad for the environment and by using solar energy you can save 99% of your electricity cost and these solar roof generate electricity by the sunlight and the electricity generated by solar roof is stored in the Solar Batteries to store and use when there's no sunlight.

Silicon

Solar panels are made using an element called silicon and silicon is also used for the production of electronics and its the 2nd most common element on this planet and it means there will be very less chances for shortage.

Why Silicon is used for making Solar Panels

Silicon is the second most common element on earth and its one of the best conductor of heat. It has a spectrum like structure and it capture a lot of radiation in one time and a solar panel lasts about 20 years and Silicon is the most reliable compound for making solar panels.

Will my solar panel work in shade ?
