La tuile solaire trompe lil des maisons villageoise

Le dernier modèle lancé par Freesuns produit de l’électricité tout en préservant l’aspect esthétique des anciennes toitures avec leurs couleurs de terre cuite.
Article publié dans 24Heures par Jean-Marc Corset

Avec les différents modèles de tuiles photovoltaïques qu’il a conçus et installe depuis maintenant cinq ans, John Morello, fondateur de Freesuns, apporte une nouvelle pierre à l’édifice solaire dans le bâtiment. Après avoir rénové toute la toiture de sa villa dans le style moderne des années 50, il a pu refaire le toit de la petite maison proche du célèbre Grand Chalet de Balthus, à Rossinière, grâce à des plaques superposées qui ressemblent comme deux gouttes d’eau à de l’ardoise. Même pari réussi à Grimentz où son entreprise a été mandatée pour remplacer une petite toiture en bardeaux. Elle s’intègre parfaitement dans le décor de ce village typique tout en alimentant en énergie des bornes de recharge de voitures électriques.

A New Solar Tile to Transform Traditional Roofs into Solar Roofs

Colombier, 11 May 2021: Freesuns is pleased to announce the launch of its innovative Solaris™ VDiamond Terracotta solar tile. This solar tile is revolutionary in its unique shape and range of earth tone colours. The Solaris™ VDiamond solar tile provides a beautiful and simple solution for 100% solar coverage for traditional and heritage buildings.
Freesuns has been working on the development of the Solaris™ VDiamond solar tile for the past three years to bring this ground-breaking product to the Swiss market. The expanded range of Freesuns solar tiles will contribute to an increased adoption of solar energy in Switzerland by providing a sustainable solution for houses and buildings without visually altering traditional roof aesthetics.

The Solaris™ VDiamond solar tile replicates the traditional terracotta clay roof tile and is available in a range of earth tone colours that can match existing roof tiles. The solar tile can fit any roof shape, including complex architectural constructions. It is ideal for houses located in traditional Swiss villages or historic buildings in city centres protected by heritage preservation laws. The installation process is the same as for traditional roof tiles utilising identical wood substructures. The Solaris™ VDiamond roof generates up to 111 Wp per m2.

Freesuns has helped clients produce energy with its range of solar tiles since 2017. With subsidies provided by the Swiss Government (Pronovo) for solar installations, the potential long-term return on investment is significant.

“We are excited to have developed this uniquely shaped colored solar roof tile. The launch of this product, together with our existing product range, enables building owners to install a solar roof without having to compromise on aesthetics.” John Morello, Founder of Freesuns

Freesuns has completed the first installation of the Solaris™ VDiamond tile in the lakeside village of Buchillon, Vaud. The owners were delighted with the results and look forward to using the solar energy generated to charge their electric cars and heat their outdoor swimming pool.

“The roof looks amazing and fits perfectly with the traditional neighbouring village houses “, Craig – Home Owner Buchillon.
