This invention concerns a solar roof consisting of unmodified mass-produced roofing elements (1), for example of fiber cement, upon which solar cells (2) which have also been mass produced have been made fast using adhesive or clamps. Each solar cell (2) has a border element (3) on its upper edge upon which a connecting terminal (4) is placed. This connecting terminal (4) has at least one receptacle (5) into which can be inserted an asymmetrically formed plug (6) at the end of a cable (7). All of the named elements (1 to 7) rest on the roofing elements (1) so that no ducts of any kind need to be provided through the roofing elements (1), for example, a longer cable (17) leads from the final roofing element (1) of a row under the next higher overlaying roofing element and under the roof to a converter or direct consumer. The switch type (series or parallel) of the individual solar cells (2) is established by the wiring in the connecting terminal (4). The roof can be laid by a roofer with no electrotechnical expertise.
