Global warming is a reality we face every day. In the European Union, buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of carbon dioxide emissions. To slow the effects of global warming, the European Union has set a series of targets, known as the European Green Deal. In this context, in the coming years, buildings will have to use mostly renewable energy sources, such as solar energy. This means that eventually, every roof will need solar panels.
To become energy independent, Romanian consumers no longer must sacrifice the aesthetics of their homes. Metigla, the specialist in innovative metal roofing solutions, launches FALT SOLAR, the solar roof with a revolutionary 2-in-1 technology that integrates photovoltaic cells directly into the metal roof.
Solar energy shouldn’t come at the expense of home aesthetics
Locally, there is a significant growth potential for solar energy, since Romania has around 210 sunny days a year. In addition, at the legislative level, there are initiatives to encourage consumers to become prosumers, i.e. to produce energy for their own consumption but also for the grid.
The innovation of FALT SOLAR is the integration of two different products (photovoltaic panel and roof) of the highest quality in terms of technology and design. From now on you no longer need to install solar panels on top of your roof but benefit from both advantages – weather protection and renewable electricity.
FALT SOLAR 2-in-1 solar roof, a complete and comprehensive solution
The metal roof with integrated photovoltaic (PV) modules is the innovative solution proposed by Metigla, in partnership with Roofit.Solar, an Estonian company established in 2016, that develops and manufactures 2-in-1 building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solutions.
“We at Metigla have a mission to provide our customers and partners with smart and sustainable solutions with a focus on safety and premium quality.” says Metigla General Manager – Cristian Mătășel. “When it came to innovation, in terms of roofing solutions, one of the advantages we didn’t want to compromise on was the aesthetics of the Metigla roof. So, we looked for a partner, with whose support we can continue to compliment the architecture of every home with a green energy roof. Falt Solar is not just a revolutionary roof that provides renewable energy, it is that roof that fits perfectly into the story of my home, your home, and all homes, like a well-tailored coat.“, says Cristian Mătășel.
The integrated solar roof produces green energy for the whole house, without affecting the architecture of the building in any way, whether it is a house, a larger building project, or a heritage building.
FALT SOLAR is the ideal solution for those who want to become energy-independent, but do not want to compromise the aesthetics and design of their home.
Aligning to consumer needs
The launch of the FALT SOLAR integrated solar roof in Romania is a natural step in line with Metigla’s mission to meet the needs and well-being of people and companies with smart, sustainable, and innovative solutions. The future is already here, and the solar roof is revolutionizing the roofing and solar energy market worldwide.
