- A solar roof can be made of solar shingles or solar tiles.
- Solar shingles and solar roof tiles more closely resemble an asphalt shingle roof.
- Shingles and tiles can be a 2-in-1 product when they replace your roof. Some tiles and shingles sit on top of your existing roof.
- The price for solar roof shingles is more than standard solar panels, which may be worth it if you already need roof repairs.
- Solar shingles are less efficient than solar panels because they are not as well-ventilated.
