Ennogie`s solar roof 2.0: a roof which produces electricity
The roof modules from Ennogie overlap both by length and width, thereby providing a tight thermal envelope as you know it from other roof materials. The underlying construction is identical to the one you know from other roof types, and it is easy and fast to mount in one simple workflow. The Ennogie roof is made of frameless solar cell panels with a black and homogeneous surface providing a simple and calm look without any disturbing parts.
Ennogie uses micro-inverters mounted on the roof instead of string-inverters which are placed inside the house. Using micro-inverters makes the roof resistant against shading and increases the system’s reliability. It also adds to the safety during installation and operation, because the DC voltage is always lower than 60 volts.
When the roof’s dimensions do not match the size of the solar cell modules exactly, we use a so-called adapter module. It looks exactly like the solar cell modules, but it does not produce energy and it can be cut to the exact size at the construction site. The adapter module is also used for skylights and chimneys.
