Has anyone stuck the new pv panels that are like film onto a shed roof. We were going to stick them on a flat roof on our lounge but the roof felt supplier will not guarantee the roof if we do

A very interesting development in USA is that Tesla, Elon Musk's company, has a subsidiary which manufactures coloured glass panels, each the size and appearance of a conventional roof tile, each of which is a miniature solar panel, so the whole roof is one massive panel and looks good too. These are presently being trialled in the States and are expected to be available in the UK soon.
