The Best Solar Panel For Slate Roofs In 2023

The Marley SolarTile is the best option on the market today for homeowners searching for a way to cut down on their monthly energy bills.

Understandably, the rising costs of living and increase in energy prices have been a hot topic this winter. So it certainly isn’t a surprise that with the rising prices comes a renewed demand for products that can help us to save money.

That’s where the latest in integrated solar technology for slate roofs from Marley comes into play. The newly developed SolarTile can save between 1.3 and 1.6 tonnes of carbon per year and make a saving for the homeowner of up to £260 on the annual electricity bill for each home that it is professionally installed on.

Of course, solar panels aren’t new. But if you aren’t up to date on how they improve your home’s efficiency, you might be wondering how they can save you money. Solar panel systems work by capturing energy from the sun using ‘photovoltaic cells’. The cells operate by converting sunlight into electricity which can be used by the home or building they are on.

As sunlight is a free energy source, it means energy bills will come down as soon as the panels are installed, and this electricity is also renewable energy. Meaning it doesn’t release carbon dioxide, so it can significantly cut a building’s carbon footprint.

But what about the aesthetic? Won’t it stick out like a sore thumb? Absolutely not! The Marley Solar Tile has been specifically designed with roof slates in mind. This means rather than the panel being fitted on top of your existing slates, it replaces the tiles on the roof so that the panels sit lower in the roofline. This provides a flush finish, that looks as though it was always designed to be a part of the building, delivering a more attractive aesthetic.

The Marley Solar Tile isn’t just easy on the eye, it also achieves exceptional fire performance and weather tightness without the need for extra roof battens, adhesive flashing rolls or fireproofing materials. As always, high winds are a consideration for roofing products, which is why the Solar Tile was also designed to have four times more wind resistance than other panels on the market.
