New roof produces solar electricity and heat

Today ARENA joined BlueScope Steel and Parliamentary Secretary Bob Baldwin at a Sydney home to officially ‘flick the switch’ at Australia’s first integrated photovoltaic thermal roofing system.

The old corrugated steel roof on the house in Glebe was completely replaced with the new roofing system, which captures solar energy as electricity and heat.
