Saint-Gobain Solar, Saint-Gobain’s solar energy-dedicated business, has just signed a partnership agreement with an innovative and experienced player on the photovoltaic market: Solaire France. Founded by Mario and André Posnansky, the men behind SUNSTYLE, the integrated PV tiles roofing system, this firm’s expertise stems from over 25 years’ R&D in the solar energy field.
Through this partnership, Saint-Gobain Solar becomes a supplier of one of the highest performing PV tiles systems, resolutely innovative in its design and visual aspect. For Fabrice Didier, Managing Director of Saint-Gobain Solar, "This solar roof is at the leading edge of PV-building integration techniques. Saint-Gobain Solar is proud to be able to offer its clients a roofing system which is not only eye-catching and easy to install, but also perfectly watertight".
As for the co-managers of Solaire France, Mario and André Posnansky, they underline that "thanks to this partnership with Saint-Gobain, associating our know-how with that of a worldwide building expert will leverage the wide-scale distribution of the SUNSTYLE system".
Solaire France, based in Rivesaltes (66)

As project developer, Solaire France ensures the delivery of SUNSTYLE roofing systems with a total power of around 9,000 kWc, comprising PV tiles supplied by Saint-Gobain Solar.
Saint-Gobain Solar
combines all Saint-Gobain businesses in the solar sector. Present over the whole value chain, Saint-Gobain Solar’s strategy hinges on three independent activities:
