While there has been a great deal of buzz about Tesla's new solar shingles, a company called SunTegra is producing a similar product that also allows for direct-to-roof installation. Unlike rack-mounted panels, these sustainable shingles provide homeowners with a more aesthetically pleasing eco energy solution.
SunTegra's Solar Shingles are a form of high-tech roofing designed to "attach directly to a roof and integrate with composition shingles and other low profile roofing materials." The system uses 50 percent fewer parts than a rack-mounted system and also reduces the complexity of the installation process. As an added benefit, the system boasts a low-profile design that helps homeowners preserve curb appeal and protect the architectural integrity of their roof.
With a growing number of consumers embracing solar energy, the SunTegra system provides a sleek and simple way to go green.
