The Swiss solar manufacturer Megasol has been producing solar roof tiles for over solar roof tiles for over 10 years. The latest version "Match" offers easy installation, high compatibility, and many design options. Megasol offers one to three standard formats per tile type, which can be combined with each other as required. In this way, the Swiss manufacturer achieves that "Match" is compatible with a very broad range of roof tiles. The solar roof tile from Megasol can be completely freely designed for sophisticated architecture. Megasol offers a wide range of colors and even the possibility to create individual colors. Megasol makes it possible to give the "Match" solar panels an individual look and even a unique feel by means of glass structures. Classic solar glass or interesting glass surfaces such as Creek, Diamond, River, or Wave can be used. This innovation was awarded the international "Red Dot Award" design prize.

Implementation Stories

MATCH Slate/Tile by Megasol Energie AG
Implemented by The municipality of Saas-Fee in Saas-Fee (Switzerland) in 2022

In Saas-Fee, an old copper roof on the parish church was replaced in 2022 with a sustainable solar roof, despite initial concerns about snow load and appearance. The new roof was designed to be energy efficient and to blend in with the village centre, which has traditional stone roofs. 700 modules of the Match Slate/Tile Solution were produced for the roof of the church in Saas-Fee.


The modules' output is of 97 kWp and they are producing around 95 kWh of electricity, resulting in a reduction of around 40 000 kg of CO2 emissions per year.


The environmental benefits

  • MATCH is produced in Switzerland at Megasol's 100% renewable electricity production site, which significantly minimizes the product's carbon footprint
  • Modern solar modules like MATCH contain neither heavy metals nor rare earths and can be recycled almost 100%
  • Grey Energy: Based on a 60 sqm installation, it takes only 2 years to generate the energy used for production, transportation, installation and deconstruction
  • CO2-Reduction: Based on a 60 sqm installation, more than 5200 kilograms of CO2 are saved within 1 year
  • Electric car distance: Based on a 60 sqm installation, more than 70'000 km can be covered by an electric car with the annual production

The Financial benefits

  • Based on an installation of 60 sqm in Switzerland, the gross income over life time is over 70000 EUR
  • Based on total self-financing, the ratio of the grey electricity tariff to the cost price of PV electricity, a 60 sqm installation provides an electricity cost advantage of about 50%
  • The installation of the MATCH solar tile on 60 sqm allows a production of up to 11'900 kWh being able to propose an independence of 170% of a family of 5 people
