As opposed to ordinary solar cell panels, the solar roof from Ennogie completely replaces the traditional roof. The roof modules overlap both by length and width, providing a tight thermal envelope. The underlying construction is identical to the other Australian roof types, and it is easy and fast to mount.
The Ennogie roof is made of frameless solar cell panels with a black and homogeneous surface providing a simple and clean look.
The layout of the roof makes both newly built and older houses look great. In 2016, Ennogie received the Danish Design Award, and in 2017 the iF Design Award for its beautiful design.
With its good aesthetics and the high energy output, the Ennogie solar roof increases the value of the building.
When the roof’s dimensions do not match the size of the solar cell modules exactly, we use an adapter module. It is identical to 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.
Ennogie recommends active modules be installed wherever possible, as there is little cost savings on using passive adapter modules. On days with less direct sunlight, a larger solar panel area can still allow a household to run almost entirely off the grid.
Ennogie uses micro-inverters mounted on the roof instead of string-inverters which are placed inside the house. Using micro-inverters makes the roof very 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 V.
At Ennogie, we believe that batteries form part of the complete solution if they are implemented correctly. It can pay substantially to install a battery pack together with your Ennogie system. The battery pack enables you to consume daytime solar energy at night-time.
The solar roof can work with virtually any battery solution to suit your home energy requirements. Currently there are multiple government incentives making batteries much more financially viable than in the past. Ennogie has some market leading technology in exclusive battery offerings.
