Title
(EN) COLORED PHOTOVOLTAIC ROOF TILES
(FR) TUILES DE TOIT PHOTOVOLTAÏQUES COLORÉES
Abstract
(EN) One embodiment can provide a photovoltaic roof tile module. The photovoltaic roof tile module can include a front encapsulant layer and a back encapsulant layer where both the front and back encapsulant layers include different pigments. The front encapsulant layer can include a small amount of pigment that absorbs and scatters particular frequencies of visible light to give the photovoltaic roof tile a desired color. The small amount of pigment does not absorb or scatter a significant amount of infrared light. Two or more photovoltaic roof tiles can be combined to form a photovoltaic module. The two or more photovoltaic roof tiles can have different concentrations of pigment in the front encapsulant layer to give the photovoltaic module a small amount of color variation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne, selon un mode de réalisation, un module de tuiles de toit photovoltaïques. Le module de tuiles de toit photovoltaïques peut comprendre une couche d'encapsulation avant et une couche d'encapsulation arrière, les couches d'encapsulation avant et arrière comprenant des pigments différents. La couche d'encapsulation avant peut comprendre une petite quantité de pigment qui absorbe et diffuse des fréquences particulières de lumière visible pour donner à la tuile photovoltaïque une couleur souhaitée. La petite quantité de pigment n'absorbe pas ou ne diffuse pas une quantité importante de lumière infrarouge. Au moins deux tuiles de toit photovoltaïques peuvent être combinées pour former un module photovoltaïque. Lesdites tuiles de toit photovoltaïques peuvent avoir des concentrations différentes de pigment dans la couche d'encapsulation avant pour donner au module photovoltaïque une légère variation de couleur.
