The integration of PV technology into roof of houses is an approach that is being championed in Germany, Japan and United states etc. In the Korea, PV roofing systems already are given the large number of houses which are projected to be built by 2012. Such BIPV system will make it possible to increase energy productivity and to decrease cost of building materials. But most of the absorbed solar energy appears passively as heat, rising the temperature of cells and reducing the efficiency with the active part is converted electricity. Therefore this paper presents the comparison of electrical and architectural performance of roof integrated PV module which can install easily into available area of building such as roof of house, public institution and factory. The difference of the front metal's temperature of the A type PV module and B type PV module have occurred approximately 21 because waffle stud of B type PV module absorbed increased heat of the front metal. But the power of each PV module is measured similarly because material for protection against heat do not radiate heat of increasing inside of PV module well. The difference of electrical power of PV modules according to season is approximately 47.8%.
