The client was looking for a roofing solution for a small studio in the garden of the Grand Chalet in Rossinière. For such an important heritage property, it was critical to preserve the historical context in the appearance of the roof in order to remain sympathetic to the site. It was also a challenge to convince the local authorities, charged with protecting the heritage of the Grand Chalet to allow solar tiles on the roof of this building.
We worked closely with our customer to answer his needs and find the appropriate solution. The result was the development of the Solaris Heritage tile. This tile looks almost identical to traditional slate tiles but yet still generates 8.0Wp per tile making solar power accessible to those with modern and heritage buildings alike.
