SolTech Alfa ??
This is the first variant with the glass tiles that store and transmit heat to where it is needed. The glass tiles will last longer than the average tile.
SolTech Σigma ?? - Also spelled SolTech Sigma
The SolTech Sigma is intended for both apartment buildings and individual houses. The concept is simple: you replace your normal tiles for a flexible tile system. This system looks like a glass or plastic roof, so with glass tiles. These special tiles capture all the warmth of the sun. This heat is then stored and used to heat your home.
No more solar panels on your roof, you instead get a new roof with glass tiles that will last 40 years.
SolTech Techo Solar ??
Besides electricity you obviously also need hot water. This is exactly what the SolTech Techo solar system does for you: heat water. As with the SolTech Sigma, the heat stored in the glass tiles.
SolTech Power ??
This variant is in fact not an official variant, but a combination of the first three options. Combine this, then you have a complete energy system for your home.
The heat that stores the SolTech System in the tile is then connected to your heating system or electrical grid.
The glass tiles can provide all the heat / energy?
The glass roof also increases warmth in the winter, because it has just a little bit of sun to work. Basically a roof takes annually more heat than a house in terms of energy needs. The glass tiles work best oriented to the south, but the southwest or southeast are also possible locations for the tiles. Snow will however not remain on the special tiles.
