The Estonian cleantech company, Roofit Solar Energy OÜ, has developed a solar roof that cuts homeowners’ CO2 footprint. Roofit Solar’s roofs already cover more than a hundred homes in Estonia. With partner Søran AS, they now plan to bring the products to the Norwegian market.

With funding from the Norway Grants, the company is working on a modular clickable roof tile that will make the product cheaper and more accessible. Roofit Solar is developing a new design and planning software to improve their services.

“Thanks to the new solar metal roof planning software, we can make the whole process more efficient. By 2025 there will probably be at least 10,000 our metal solar roofs around the world,” said Andri Jagomägi, CEO of Roofit Solar.

Drive a car around the globe 78 times

With a capacity of 10 kW, a single roof can help prevent the emission of 300 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere by producing solar energy. That is equivalent to driving a car around the globe 78 times.

By the end of the project, the company aims for its green energy output to reach 50 000 MWH per year and to reduce annual CO2 emissions by 200 kilotons. That’s the emission equivalent of approximately 61 000 cars.
