PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- SRS Energy, a leading developer of integrated solar roofing products, will exhibit its Sole Power Tile(TM), the first building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing product designed for curved roofing systems, at Greenbuild, the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The conference takes place November 10 through November 13, 2009 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona. SRS Energy will exhibit the Sole Power Tile system in partnership with US Tile, the largest manufacturer of clay tile in North America.
"The Sole Power Tile system is the first product to integrate with the barrel-style roof line of the Southwest and Sunbelt regions. Homeowners and architects can now incorporate solar into their homes and buildings without having to sacrifice aesthetics," said Marty Low, CEO of SRS Energy. "Our disruptive approach to distributing solar through the roofing industry provides our certified building and construction partners an opportunity to brand and sell a new product, solar, into a marketplace they have owned for decades."
SRS Energy's Sole Power Tile(TM) system blends seamlessly with several styles of US Tile's clay tiles, providing energy without unsightly solar panels and preserving design flexibility.
The partnership between US Tile and SRS Energy makes going solar easy by integrating the BIPV system into the purchase of a new roof or a replacement roof. A select group of contractors have been certified to sell and install our Sole solar systems. Specification support for architects is available at SRS Energy and US Tile.
The Sole Power Tile employs cutting-edge thin film solar technology, valued for its ability to convert a greater spectrum of light into electricity, as well as its relative insensitivity to heat when compared to other solar technologies. As a complete roofing system, the barrel tile profile allows for airflow beneath the tiles, reducing the overall cooling needs of the home.
SRS Energy and US Tile are currently launching the Sole Power Tile system in select West Coast markets and will begin a nationwide rollout of the product in 2010.
