Rent Your Roof


We’ve featured lots of sharing type services on our blog, like LandShare, where people can share garden allotments, and Whipcar, a service that lets people share their vehicles.  Now, new to the sharing scene is Seglet. Seglet is a web-based service that connects owners of rooftops to renters who want to use the space.

People and companies who want to use a rooftop can search for people who are willing to let out their space. The rooftops can be used a site for solar energy generation, wind energy as well as extra allotment space for food growing. Each rooftop listing includes details such as water availability, solar exposure levels and access to utility. The owners can make some money from the rental and the renters can use the space for personal or commercial activities.
