Heritage Solar Slate: A Contemporary Roof that Blends New and Old
Solar Slate Allows for Eco-Friendly Traditional Roof
If solar panels appeal for their environmental benefits, but an attractive, traditional appearance is also required for your building, Heritage Solar Slate is the ideal solar slate to provide both modern-day energy efficiency and the aesthetic properties of regular roofing slate.
Heritage Solar Slate is an efficient, roof-integrated, PV slate that is ideal for conservation districts and historic buildings. These weatherproof panels blend in with standard roof slate to please the eye, while providing a long-awaited solar panel solution that will meet planning rules. Historic buildings and conservation areas deserve to improve their carbon footprint while still maintaining the look of the past, and Heritage Solar Slate does both.
Features provided by Heritage Solar Slate include the following:
--Reliability – no moving parts to worry about
--Aesthetics – an attractive match to traditional roofing slates
--Virtually no maintenance required
--Eligible for feed-in-tariffs
--Meets those essential planning requirements
--Installation is painless – plug and play
Heritage Solar Slate has put together a simple, ‘fit-and-forget’ installation process, so building crews with traditional roofing skills can easily do the work. The electrician installing the system must be MCS accredited. The roof should be built as normal, secured with roofing hooks, to batten level, with a gauge of 205mm.
You may have researched the other photovoltaic slates on the market, but the company claims that Heritage Solar Slate is the only product that looks so similar to traditional slate that it can meet planning requirements on the slate roofs of listed buildings.
