Kyocera has introduced a new solar roof tile. The solar tile is designed so that it blends in with standard roof tiles.
These are not the first solar tiles on the market (see this previous post), but it is the first time a large corporation has introduced them.
Kyocera calls the solar tiles “MyGen Meridian”. The company says the tiles were produced in response to homeowner’s associations that have been critical of conventional solar panel installations due to their ‘added-on’ look.
