Calder Stewart Roofing has launched Solar Rib® - New Zealand's only roofing profile that is specifically designed to generate electric power through the use of Photo-Voltaic Laminate (PVL) solar panel technology.

The company has been testing the Italian-made product on DoC's Dumpling Hut in Fiordland, and are calling it the next generation in solar technology, moving away from bulky, fragile glass panels that bolt into the roof. With manufacturing machines in both the North and South Island, a nationwide network of certified installers are qualified to install the Solar Rib® technology.
