Metrotile Photovoltaics

  • Individual homes.
  • Large social housing projects.
  • Schools.
  • Commercial buildings.
  • Industrial buildings.


Enables the rooftop to harness energy from natural light. Compatible with all Metrotile Slate and Bond profiles, available both incorporated into tiles or for retro-fitting onto the rooftop.

One tile equals one installed photovoltaic panel. The tiles interlock and are screwed, not nailed, for easy removal should a cell be damaged. There are no special flashings or mounting systems and no other waterproofing or sealing materials are required.

Features and benefits:

  • Easy to install.
  • Save money on home energy bills with the opportunity for making money back from feed-in tariffs.
  • Reduces carbon footprint.
  • Can be installed to a low pitch, so are less obtrusive, helping to avoid planning restrictions.
