Metrotile Photovoltaics enable your rooftop to harness energy from natural light

Metrotile have a very flexible portfolio of Photovoltaics (PVs), both incorporated into tiles or retro-fitted onto the existing rooftop, covering all the options open to the specifier or end user. Whether for a residential home or an industrial or commercial project, our photovoltaic roof tiles are easy to install and can generate extensive energy for the premises.

With Metrotile Photovoltaics installed, you will:

Save money on energy bills with the opportunity for making money back from feed-in tariffs. Reduce your carbon footprint and make your Future Proof Roof an even more sustainable option. Be able to install the PV tiles to a low pitch roof, helping to avoid planning restrictions. We can provide the solution for all installations ranging from the individual home, large social housing projects through to schools, and commercial and industrial buildings of all shapes and sizes.


The Metrotile Photovoltaic roof tiles are easy to install, as one tile is one installed Photovoltaic panel. The tiles interlock and are screwed not nailed for easy removal should a cell be damaged. There are no special flashings or mounting systems and no other waterproofing or sealing materials are required allowing for a fast and simple installation.


Our PV roof tiles guarantee a sustainable premise, helping to improve energy efficiency especially relevant for new build projects where eco-friendliness is at the forefront of design. Whatever the weather or location of the building, photovoltaic tiles can provide enough energy to power a home with the availability to sell back additional energy to the national grid.
