      Have any members any experience in PV slates.

      Scottish Border Planners are stating that they require natural slate (black/blue grey) only to a new Passive House build, even though not in a Conservation area (Pre-Planning stage only).

      I did send them a pic but recvd a reply saying that whilst the colour seemed OK, it had no texture!

      Would welcome any feedback from members who may have used these products or have had a similar experience with Planners and roof finishes.

      Thanks.

      Christopher,

      This will depend on your timescale. Tesla are promoting a black textured toughened glass slate that may be suitable but there will be no UK deliveries until some time next year. See https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/solarroof

      Hopefully this suggestion will encourage some useful debate.

      Best of luck,
      Tim

      Hi Tim,
      Thanks for response.
      I have looked at these but they don’t quite fit the bill. The most suitable I have found so far are from Nulok with an interesting mounting system although they do not look as natural as I would like.They are sending me some samples.
      The research continues………
      Chris.

      Hi Chris,

      I had a brief interest in Nulok a while back but needed tiles not slates. Another company I have been in touch with is http://www.soleccosolar.com
      If you haven’t yet you could look at their products. They have some texture but are much thicker than a slate.

      Regards,
      Tim

      Hi Tim,
      Whilst I need slates, these tiles look very similar.
      Have made contact with Solecco so will see what they can offer.
      Thanks for taking the time to supply info. – much appreciated.
      Regards,
      Chris.
