Abstract

A method for producing a photovoltaic roofing tile includes providing an open compression tool and placing an undulated formed polymeric substrate in the open compression tool as well as placing a substantially flat photovoltaic laminate in the open compression tool proximate the substrate. Heat and pressure are applied to the photovoltaic laminate to simultaneously bond the photovoltaic laminate with the substrate and impart undulations to the photovoltaic laminate which correspond to undulations in the substrate. The heat and pressure are applied by closing the compression tool to apply heat from the compression tool to the photovoltaic laminate and to compress the photovoltaic laminate and the substrate against one another.
