Simple and low-cost way to integrate solar modules into the roof of a new home. Solar modules ARE the roof, not just ON the roof.

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?
