Surely better there than covering fields we need to grow food ! If you think it is a jolly good idea :

I've been saying this for several years - not just panels but solar roofing materials. I hate to see solar 'farms' they truly are an eyesore not to mention a complete waste of valuable growing areas.

At an Engineering Council environment awards ceremony I visited (ok, we were runners-up for our weed control machinery Wink ) there was a company that made solar roof tiles; they were compatible with the standard concrete or ceramic tiles, but came with their own replacement laths, which had sockets and internal bus bars - the tiles just plugged in, and could be butted up to / interspersed with regular tiles so you could fit the PV ones in the best locations and use conventional tiles for the rest.  Seemed like a great idea but I don't think those ones are still manufactured - there are solar tiles/slates available from others now though - Tesla, and GB Sol in Pontypridd - these look great to me.

I like the idea of a system that is fairly easy to retro-fit, but look less of a bodge and are less likely to leave your roof leaking than bolted on solar panels.
