Solar Slate wins major industry award for Best Sustainable Technology

Solar Slate Ltd, an expert in solar roof slates (also known as solar roof tiles), has scooped a coveted Build-It Award for its innovative Solar Slate Multi product.

The Build-It Awards ceremony – which was held at the Swindon Hilton hotel on 23rd October 2014 – brought together architects, manufacturers and suppliers in a celebration of the best products and technologies in the industry of self-build and renovation.

Solar Slate’s Multi product received an overwhelming vote in its favour in the Best Sustainable Technology or Product category, fending off competition from Dimplex, EcoStrata and Surface Power HONE.

Solar Slate Multi, an affordable option for solar energy roof slates, provides a range of options for homes that wish to generate clean energy from the sun while retaining the appearance of a slate roof. The award-winning Solar Slate Multi is the company’s more affordable, quick-to-install solution. It is helping to make solar photovoltaic technology accessible to a much wider range of self-builders and renovators.

Paul Neilson, Commercial Director of Solar Slate, comments: “We are thrilled to win such a prestigious award. Our British-designed, European-manufactured products are a triumph of homegrown innovation in the arena of green technology.”

He adds: “Solar Slate received a fantastic response at the awards ceremony. As a small team, Solar Slate is proud to successfully compete with much larger companies in the industry and help in bringing aesthetically pleasing solar energy generation on roofs to self-builders nationwide.”
