Hi. We currently have solar hot water tubes on our roof feeding the appropriate tank, but are planning to have Tesla PV solar roof tiles when they finally arrive here in Ireland. Does anyone know if it’s feasible to retain the hot water system when we replace the roof- are they compatible? I realize that it’s compromising the aesthetic of the Tesla roof, but the cylinders are very efficient at producing hot water. Ecology is the primary concern.
Any knowledgeable views would be most appreciated, and I’d particularly like to hear from someone who has done this. Thanks!
