Most of the time the posts here are crafty or art oriented. Every once in awhile I have to post cool tidbits that are more technological. This is about solar power and glass roof tiles. Found this information on Facebook on Inhabitat’s page. A Swedish company has come up with these tiles and have even won an award for how effectively they work. Orrefors is the glass maker that’s working with them to make the tiles. Using a black backing and air vents the glass heats up air that is then used to heat water. What’s also great about this is that it can work even in the darker periods because it stores the heat. Go learn more at the site…
