Solar panel roof

In keeping with the tire theme of earthships, I've found a company that shreds used tires to create roof tiles, and then embeds solar panels in those tiles. Redwood Renewables gives homeowners the chance to have solar panels without the big panels themselves, and at, according to them, about half the cost of a standard solar installation.

Recycled, insulative materials? Check. Lower cost? Check. Definitely something worth keeping in mind.
