Honor to Traditions

SolarTerra® is a solar tile developed in Switzerland which aims to equip traditional buildings with solar technology while respecting their cultural heritage.  It is a fully integrated solution that replaces conventional roofing tiles and generates electricity. With a seamless design, each tile looks beautiful from near and far, and complements the architecture of the building.
