Product Overview

The new Solar Powered Fresh Air skylight lights up your home and provides proper ventilation using only the power of the sun. It features a solar panel that captures any available daylight, and uses it to recharge a highly efficient battery powered operator and control system. The solar panel does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function, so it will work on cloudy days and with indirect light.

Tile Roof installation

This question is from 21 x 45-3/4 in. Solar Powered Fresh Air Venting Deck-Mount Skylight with Laminated Low-E3 Glass

I didn't see a flashing option for tile roof with the solar powered options. Nor does it state that the 10 year warranty would apply to tile roofs. Does that mean that the solar powered skylight cannot be installed on a tile roof?

Answer: 
The EDW Tile Flashing is not compatible with the VSS Skylight because of the solar panel. Since we do not offer a flashing for it, we do not recommend installing the VSS on a tile roof application. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loved the 30% tax credit Considering the 30% tax credit this seemed like a very good value. Remote set up very easy other than the instructions should have mentioned the On/Off switch on the skylight that must be on to activate the remote before beginning. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cool Skylights! These skylights transformed the room. I can't imagine why anyone would install those opaque plastic bubbles when these are available. We had a contractor install and I don't think he had any problems except the instructions for the blinds were useless -- a few pictures -- had to scour the internet for videos. The blinds were not difficult to install once it was clear how to do so. These things close as soon as it starts raining and the remote control is very easy to use and basically auto-configures itself. There are lots of features with the control that we haven't explored. September 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solar power mades this one an easy option After much deliberation, on fixed or vented I am so glad I went wit the solar powered version. This makes my fifth skylight install, but my first that was done the correct way. I purchased the flashing kit, and Velux will back your installation for 10 years. Instructions were good, but youtube was very helpful. June 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this skylight! I can't really talk about the ease of installation because my contractor did it. But I have had it for a year now and it doesn't leak. The remote control is very cool and I love how no electricity is required at all. Just cut a hole, install with flashing and patch the roof. It works like a charm and has totally transformed a dark bathroom. I am putting another one in my kitchen and a third in another dark bathroom. Very highly recommend this skylight. June 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A 5-Star excellent review from a 40 year contractor/professional remodeler! Very well constructed sky light. Solid construction. Nothing is flimsy or cheap - all is high quality materials and fabrication. The product comes in a very durable cardboard box and the interior packaging is top quality which protects the skylight during shipment and loading it up on the roof for installation. Once installed it works flawlessly! The ease of the solar powered wireless remote control operation is amazing. It took no time syncing the remote to the unit. I must say the read out on the remote screen is state of the art. It looks expensive and quality when it mounts on the wall. The magnet securing the actual remote to the wall mounted cradle is clever. Best of all just today July 16, 2015 I did a walk through with the home owners (my clients) and both the husband and wife can not say enough of how pleased they are with the product or installation. As a contractor doing residential remodels for close to 40 years I absolutely would recommend this product. Only con is that I would suggest not to try this yourself. This is not a DIY project as there is too much involved with getting the opening and framing correct. July 16, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good shade, expensive product. I'm glad we got the shade for our skylight, it does diffuse the light and help to keep out added heat from the hot sun. It was not very easy to install, it could use better instructions. And it's pretty expensive for what it is. July 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, looks great. It's a great looking skylight and works good too. It is a little loud opening and shutting but that's not too bad. The control panel is cool and looks nice on the wall. The item does not come with flashing which is necessary to install it. Not being aware of this we had to place a separate order and wait to have the installation completed which was a bit of a pain. June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My wife loves it!! I wanted to install a replacement skylight on my home with power type unit so my wife could open an close it easier ,at the time the only one that was available was a hard wired system and that would make it to difficult to do myself . Velux was the answer ,the new solar powered skylight was my answer to my dilemma, I could install it myself without hard wiring it . I ordered it along with the Velux flashing kit through Home Depot online and received it in about a week right to my door . I went online and did my home work and watched the videos that Velux offered . It took me about 8 hrs to install the unit but that's because I had never installed one before , it went smoothly ,the flashing kit made it a breeze . Well we had a hard rain storm 3 days later and it works great with the automatic rain sensor , it closed the window and not a drop of rain got on our kitchen floor. We could never leave our old skylight open if there was even a chance of rain. My wife loves it , she loves the wireless remote (no more cranking) just push a button and it goes up or down . On those hot days when we get home we push a button and within an hr the house cools down 5-10 deg and saves on air conditioning. I would highly recommend these solar units, I'm sure it will pay for itself in the long run just in the savings on AC usage October 22, 2013
