Solar Shingles

I'm planning my new house and am looking into generating some of my electricity using solar shingles or the Uni-Solar PV laminate. Does anyone have experience with this?

This type of stuff is still quite new, so there is little experience outside of specialized contractors. I would recommend that you get in touch with the manufacturer for a list of contractors and engineers who deal specifically with their products.

IMO, economically, you should energy efficiently build your house, especially in heating/cooling/ventillation, appliances. lighting, and water usage, before you consider adding solar panels, let alone solar shingles.
