SOLARWATT In-roof Solar Panel Wins 2019 German Design Award


The German Design Council (Rat fuer Formgebung) has awarded SOLARWATT the 2019 German Design
Award for its EasyIn in-roof solar panel. The glass-glass panel, which can
replace normal roof tiles, was awarded in the "Excellent Product
Design" category. "As a premium manufacturer, we want to offer our
customers superior design in addition to technically mature products. More and
more homeowners want something special and place increasing value on
aesthetics," says SOLARWATT CEO, Detlef Neuhaus.

The roof-integrated EasyIn solar panel convinced the
jury not only with its design but also with the special cost-saving benefit for
customers. For anyone planning a new house or tackling a roof renovation,
EasyIn is a cost-saving alternative to an on-roof installation. The panels are
mounted directly on the roof battens and replace conventional roofing tiles. This
means fewer roof tiles need to be purchased overall . "Our in-roof panels are
not only attractive, they are also extremely durable and reliably generate
clean solar power for decades. If you can protect your wallet and the
environment at the same time "“ so much the better!" says Neuhaus.

The solar roof tiles, the size of a standard solar
panel, have been in production since 2011 and since 2017 as the highly robust
glass-glass variety. As electricity-generating roof coverings, they complement
the product portfolio of both electricians and roofers who want to meet special
customer requirements.

This is the second time this year that the German
Design Council has awarded products from the Dresden-based photovoltaic systems
provider: in June, the SOLARWATT MyReserve battery received the 2018 German
Innovation Award.

The German Design
Award has been presented annually since 2012 and is one of the most recognized
design competitions worldwide. Every year the high-calibre jury honors exciting
entries from the fields of product and communication design, all of which in
their own way are pioneers in the international design landscape. The 2019
German Design Awards ceremony will take place on February 8th, 2019
as part of the "Ambiente" trade fair in Frankfurt.
