Glass Roof Tiles That Double As Solar Energy Collectors

Sun Tiles

I am soooo cold! All the time. Even now as I sit here typing I feel like my fingers might freeze off. I think it’s partly due to circulation but mostly to the thermostat. ‘Someone’ in my house insists that it not be turned up high. Booo. I bet cold wouldn’t be a problem if I had a natural heating source like these sun tiles.

Let’s face it. Solar panels aren’t that pretty to look at. They are great for power but not for the aesthetic beauty of your home. These glass roof tiles aren’t unattractive at all. In fact they are just as functional as they are fashionable.

Made from ordinary glass, these tiles cut down on energy costs and provides insulation. It’s not like having a furnace on your roof but they will keep things warmer. They can generate 350 kWh (kilowatts) of heat per square meter or 10 square feet (science talk). How amazing that we can harness the power of the sun. I wonder what Apollo thinks of that. Here are some other solar panel designs that are a little more inconspicuous than the norm. Trend Hunter has gathered up some good ones for us.
