Sunslates™ are an advanced photovoltaic product. Sunslates™ allow the roof of your home to serve as both a roof and a power plant simultaneously. A typical installation of 216 Sunslates™ (about 300 square feet / 28 square meters) will cover from 60 to 80% of your power needs, depending on location.
With SUNSLATES™ solar electric roofing tiles, you get more than a roof over your head. A technologically advanced roofing solution dramatically reduces electricity demand. Atlantis Energy's stringent standards and insistence on using superior building materials results in a product that will last for decades. Each SUNSLATES™ tile begins as an Eternit roofing slate. These slates dominate the European roofing world. We then glue the low glare tempered glass power panel to the exposed surface. Because it is a roofing product it is installed using on site electrical or certified roofing subs.
Installation is Easy
Ideal for both new construction or re-roofing, the complete SUNSLATES™ system is delivered to the job site. No special trades are necessary. Once trained, the roofer and electrician can handle the installation themselves:
• SUNSLATES™ are secured with stainless steel storm anchor hooks and anchored to 1x4 nailers resting on 2x2 sleepers.
• Each SUNSLATES™ tile comes with a proprietary gas-tight connector that wires each tile to the adjacent tile. With a simple twist of a special screwdriver-like tool (provided), the SUNSLATES™ tile is locked securely within its circuit.
