Abstract

See full text

In a solar roof member comprising a photovoltaic device encapsulated with an insulating material onto a reinforcing member, the reinforcing member has a joining portion at which an adjoining solar roof member is joined, and a curved portion which is so provided in the reinforcing member as to extend over at least part of the joining portion and through which a lead wire is led out. The solar roof member enables simple roofing without causing wiring mistakes.
