Viridian Solar was established in 2003 and its Clearline Fusion PV technology is behind Marley SolarTile®, a roof-integrated solar panel solution launched in 2020.   Marley SolarTile® works seamlessly with existing roof structures to directly replace roof tile sections and is a quick and simple way to provide a greener and cost-effective energy source.

The addition of solar panels to the Marley product portfolio represents a valuable opportunity for stockists of the Marley roofing range.  Builders and homeowners will be increasingly adding solar solutions to their building projects, and Marley are looking to work with merchant partners to serve this sector.

Paul Reed, chief operating officer for Marley, said: “This is an exciting acquisition for Marley as we further strengthen our position as a single-source supplier for full roof systems.  As a market-leading organisation, Viridian Solar has, over the past two decades, continued to innovate and develop high quality solar solutions.  This complements Marley’s position and allows architects and builders to specify a complete roof system solution incorporating a solar panel technology, with the reassurance of our 15-year roof system guarantee.”
