solar roof tiles

the american company srs energy has taken the idea of solar panels design for rooftop to a whole new level by integrating them right into roof tiles. rather than using flat panels installed over traditional roofing materials, srs energy has developed solar panel roofing tiles that integrate right into the roof. the unique design allows the tiles to blend right into the roof, making themselves almost invisible. the tiles are made from a lightweight recyclable plastic that is molded together with a flexible solar cell. while the flexible panel design gathers less energy, it actually reacts to a broader spectrum of light. the tiles are also linked together so that they can operate even if one stops working.
