A solar roof could be much stronger and far more durable than a conventional plywood and shingle roof.

Tom, take a look at this 6,900 pound truck parked on top of a Silicon Energy module if you want to see how strong they are.  There are also photos of this module after having been shot with a 45 and 22 caliber gun.  Their construction is very similar to bullet-proof glass, and they are WAY stronger than conventional solar modules, which are also subject to damage from projectiles.

By the way, I do not have any financial ties with Silicon Energy.

Eureka! Is it also impervious to thrown projectiles?
