PV Slate

PV Slates work seamlessly with natural slates for the most discrete and attractive solar roofs - ever

Designed with flexibility in mind, PV Slates combine seamlessly with natural blue-grey slates to allow you to install as large or as small a system as required. 

Manufactured in Wales, PV Slate has been designed and independently tested to withstand the extremes of the UK’s weather, made of toughened glass and high quality aluminium.  Every PV Slate comes with a 25 year warranty on product, solar performance and weatherproofing.

With hundreds of installations around the UK and popular with Local Authority planning departments, PV Slate is the perfect solution where aesthetics are vitally important.


The standard 500x250 PV Slate unit has a peak output of 27.5W and an ex-works price of £57.50.  Each 500x250 unit replaces four natural 500x250 slates, covering an area of 0.2sqm.  That gives PV Slate an overall roof kit price of £284/sqm or £8,395.00 for a 4kW system.

Note that PV Slates needs a border of natural or infill slates, so you need to account for about 0.5m of border around all edges, roof windows and other penetrations when calculating the available area for power generation.

Prices do not include delivery or VAT.  VAT is usually 5% for UK solar installations or 0% for new build houses.


PV Slate looks even more amazing when taken edge-to-edge by using the same materials to make the surrounding "infill" slates.  You would never know it wasn't a natural slate roof.  Please contact us for more details.

British Made Solar Panels

The GB-Sol G60 panel is a framed solar panel that is soldered, laminated, framed and wired by our team of 18 technicians at our factory north of Cardiff.

G60 panels are made using high quality 4mm toughened glass, which is much stronger than the 3.2mm glass used on most panels. The thicker glass also looks flatter & sharper on the roof.

The cells used are the latest high efficiency dark monocrystalline circa 22.4% grade A.  The bus wires are hidden for a “blacker" look with less silver showing.

Battery Storage Systems

Battery storage is becoming an increasingly popular option with solar PV. It provides the opportunity to store the solar electricity generated during the day for use later in the evening. This reduces the need to export excess energy and then purchase it from the grid later at an increased price.
