SolTech Energy integrates solar, beautifully 
Nothing says “afterthought” like a rectangle of solar panels slapped onto the roof of a house with no visual relationship with the rest of the structure. Swedish company SolTech Energy brings solar in a different direction with their roofing tiles, made from ordinary glass in the shape of (gasp) ordinary roofing tiles. Why has no one thought of this sooner?
The attractive tiles—which heat pockets of air that in turn heat water—were named “Hottest New Material 2010" by a Swedish construction industry magazine that, frankly, you’ve never heard of, but the proof’s in the pudding; stack these up next to any other roof-based solar system and tell us which looks better.
