Energy Roof / Roof

Energy Roof

For some people living in resource-poor areas, the lack of basic conditions such as water and electricity can cause a lot of inconvenience to their lives. The energy roof solves this problem very well. It provides people with more energy options. This is a concentrated roof that can be achieved through morphological changes: solar power, rainwater harvesting and daily exhaust. The energy harvesting roof is designed as two tiles to accommodate the construction of different types of roofs where the solar panels on the tile surface absorb energy.
