Rooftop PV Tiles

  • Insulated Solar Glas
  • Available Colors: Custom
  • Variants: 2
  • Transmittance: 0%
  • Efficiency: 135W/㎡
  • For Domestic Rooftop Systems

Rooftop PV Tiles

Rooftop PV tiles reduce roofing and slate/tiling costs while giving the roof an aesthetic look. They just look like a normal roof and are beautiful while standing out with a high efficiency. Thanks to new heat recovery technology, they reduce heating bills as well.

Our Household PV Tiles are similar in structure to the Standard Series, but with a fully tempered glass layer at the backside. In consequence, PV tiles offer better resistance against impacts from objects like hailstones.

Choosing the Right Solar Panel

solar inverter diagram

Solar panels convert direct or indirect sunlight into electricity, which then flows through a converter so it can be used to power devices.

A photovoltaic (PV) array acts as the root of a solar power system. While any part of the system can greatly impact its overall efficiency, this efficiency is governed in the first instance by the quality of the solar panels used in the array. There are many environmental and financial incentives for installing an efficient solar energy system: Not only do many governments offer tax credits to offset the initial cost, but home solar arrays can dramatically reduce your electricity bill.

How Solar Panels Work

Solar panels use the photovoltaic effect to generate electricity. They are made up of semi-conductive material which, when struck by light, absorb a part of the energy that the light is composed of.

This energy fires up some of the electrons in the material, which can then leave their bound position and move.

In so doing, they create an electrical charge. The electricity produced by the solar panels then has to be converted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC), which is done with  solar inverters.

Will My Solar Panels Work Outside of Direct Sunlight?

It is natural to assume that solar panels only generate electricity if they are exposed to direct sunlight. However, this is incorrect: Solar panels work in any weather, albeit with reduced efficiency depending on how cloudy it is. This means that solar panels generate as much power during winter as they do during summer, as long as there is sunlight and they are not obscured. The only thing that will stop a solar cell from producing any electricity is being completely deprived of sunlight.

However, before making the decision to purchase solar equipment, you should still make sure that you will be able to use it effectively with your roof layout. If you are unsure if this is the case for you, your local solar installer will be happy to give you further information!

Types of Solar Panels

  • Monocrystalline: Very efficient / expensive 
  • Polycrystalline: Less efficient / more affordable
  • Thin-film: Less efficient / very flexible

The Solar Cell Technology behind Ruike Panels

Nano-cadmium telluride solar cells (CdTe) are thin-film solar cells based on heterojunctions of p-type CdTe and n-type CdS. A transparent conductive film (TCO) and a transparent high resistance transition (HRT) film are deposited on a glass substrate, then cadmium sulfide (n-type) and cadmium telluride (p-type) films are deposited by vapor transport deposition (VTD).   The improvement of crystal structure and the activation of PN junction are accomplished through CdCl2 activation treatment.

A metal electrode (Mo/Al/Cr) is further deposited by physical vapor deposition (PVD), and a glass /TCO /CdS /CdTe/Mo/Al/Cr [cell] structure is formed.   Butyl and EVA tapes are attached to the base of the cell, and then laminated and sealed by a laminator. At last a junction box is installed to complete the manufacture of a solar cell. 

Why Invest Now?

There is no time like the present, especially when it comes to investing in solar panels for home applications.

Thanks to continuous innovation within the industry and large-scale production, the cost of solar panels in the UK and Europe has been plummeting in recent years, while their efficiency and quality have done the exact opposite.

With average household electricity rates going up and flexible financing options like solar panel grants and solar leases becoming available, installing a domestic PV system is now more cost-effective than ever.

Maintenance of Solar Panel Systems

Solar panels are very easy to maintain, considering they are advanced electrical equipment. Since they are constantly exposed to all kinds of weather, they need to be sturdy and weather-resistant right out of the box. Our Ruike Household PV Tiles and Standard Panels for example are IP65 water-resistant and have an impact resistance rating of 4. This means they are just as durable as regular roof shingles, maybe even more!

The only maintenance you will have to carry out regularly is cleaning your solar panels. There are differing opinions on just how regularly you need to do this, but generally speaking, once or twice annually should do the job. You can even enlist professional help, but this can be costly in the long run. We suggest investing in some equipment and doing it yourself, but remember: Safety first!

Only climb on your roof if it is flat enough to safely stand on, and do it from the ground if possible. If you have any safety concerns, listen to your gut and call a professional!
