PHILADELPHIA, July 27, 2010 - SRS Energy, a leading developer of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products, today announced that its Solé Power Tile has been chosen to power the Sunset Dream Remodel Home. The Open House began last Friday and will continue through August 15th, 2010.
This historic 1920's bungalow in Los Gatos, California, has been overhauled into a modern Mediterranean villa. De Mattei Construction transformed a 1,500 square foot rental property into a green oasis using sustainable building materials. The Solé Power Tile, the first curved solar roof tile, was selected for its seamless integration with the barrel -style clay roof, preserving the home's historic appeal while delivering renewable energy savings.
"We did this remodel consciously because of the times," says Kathi McCalligan, Sunset's Home Programs Director. "We wanted to showcase that smart design can be beautiful." The Solé Power Tile system is a stunning complement to a gallery of green design including drought -tolerant landscaping, low VOC paint, and an eco -friendly custom kitchen island.
"Builders and homeowners have become increasingly aware of the financial benefits of solar power," says SRS Energy CEO, JD Albert. "Sunset's Dream Remodel is a perfect fit for the Solé Power Tile which fuses the timeless style of clay tile with excellence in engineering." The Sunset Solé Power Tile system includes sixty solar roof tiles, with an estimated annual production of 1,200 kilowatt hours. The Solé Power Tile system is expected to eliminate expensive, top -tier electricity costs for the future owner.
The Solé Power Tile was recently recognized as the first curved solar roof tile to obtain UL certification and CEC listing. SRS Energy and US Tile, the largest manufacturer of clay tile in North America, have partnered to launch the Solé Power Tile system in California with a nationwide rollout of the product to follow.
