Redland, a brand of the worldwide Monier Group, exhibited its ranges of solar PV systems at this year’s Ecobuild event in London, demonstrating the company’s commitment to the renewable energy sector.
With the ever-increasing need for new homes to be energy efficient, micro generation still represents an excellent mechanism for those looking to comply with regulations and solar PV remains the technology of choice.
Redland has more than 90 years experience manufacturing pitched roofing materials for the UK market and has used its extensive knowhow to develop its solar PV offer.

Since launch in April 2010, Redland Solar PV Tiles have been installed across the UK. Being roof-integrated means Redland Solar PV Tile fits flush with the roof line, simply replacing a single course of tiles, providing an aesthetically pleasing and unobtrusive means of generating clean electricity.
Redland also offers an On-top PV system compatible with not only most of Redland’s range of roof tiles and slates but also those from other manufacturers. This system is perfect for the retrofit market and has a unique fixing hook designed and tested specifically for the UK market. This is something not all manufacturers possess, with many on-top systems fixing kits designed for use in continental Europe and not for use in the UK.
Sarah Orio, Marketing Manager at Redland, says: “Visitors to our stand at Ecobuild will be able to see just how innovative our solar PV technology really is. Redland Solar PV Tiles have already been installed across the country, withstanding the worst of recent British weather and our On-top system is designed to do exactly that too.”
