Schweizer SOLRIF® XL

Like roof tiles: the Solrif system converts framless photovoltaic laminates into a power generating one. Installed on a simple wood batten structure, these solar roof tiles replace the regular roof cover. The photovoltaic system may thus cover the complete roof or only a portion of it.
