PV Slate has now been extended to a full roof system

 PV Slate is now available edge-to-edge. It is now almost impossible to distinguish GB-Sol's PV Slates from natural slates, as the system has been extended to be able to cover the whole roof.

GB-Sol first full roof PV Slate scheme has now been commissioned at Pilton Methodist Church Hall in Somerset, with the support of local architect Roger Barnes.  140 PV Slates were used, generating 3.85kWp of power and replacing 420 natural slates.  The system works with a Tesla Powerwall installed by our friends Solarsense for a complete solar & battery system.

PV Slate creates stunning roofs that have the look and feel of natural slate combined with the hidden electricity generating power of high efficiency solar cells.  PV Slates can also be fitted right alongside natural slates and come with a 25 year warranty.

Manufactured in Wales, the GB-Sol PV Slates have been designed and independently tested to withstand the extremes of the UK weather.  Popular with UK Local Authority planning departments, churches and listed buildings:  PV Slate is the perfect solution where aesthetics are vitally important.
