About Us

As we see signs of climate change day to day, renewable energy sources are increasing in demand. Solar power offers little to no global warming emissions. Consumers want to do their part to preserve the environment for future generations, however, in doing so, most would prefer not to compromise on the aesthetic of their lifestyle and especially their most valuable asset - their home. The idea for our product was a result of a Sunday drive in the English countryside. Home after home had conventional solar panels mounted on their roofs. A beautiful countryside, marred by solar panels. Why not just make the panels and the roof tile one? Behold, the Ergosun Integrated Solar Roof Tile.

The Ergosun Integrated Solar Roof Tile was engineered in the UK and now generates power on homes in Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, South Africa, and Jamaica using the most common roofing material in the world - concrete roof tiles. We continue to grow our geographic footprint with many more projects in development globally.

Ergosun is part of Solarmass Energy Group Ltd. which exists with a mission to solarize existing building materials.
