FREESUNS TILES BLEND IN WITH TRADITIONAL VILLAGE ROOFS.

The latest Freesuns solar tile model launched by Freesuns produces electricity while preserving the aesthetic appearance of old roofs with their terracotta colors. 

With the various models of photovoltaic tiles that he has been designing and installing for five years now, John Morello, founder of Freesuns, is adding a new stone to the solar building industry. After renovating the entire roof of his villa in the modern style of the 1950s, he was able to redo the roof of the small house near the famous Grand Chalet de Balthus, in Rossinière, thanks to superimposed plates that look like two drops of water to slate. The same challenge was met in Grimentz, where his company was commissioned to replace a small shingled roof. It blends in perfectly with the decor of this typical village while supplying energy to the charging stations for electric cars.
