The increase in popularity of renewable energy has spawned some creative solar panel designs on homes. As more and more Americans are lessening their carbon footprint and saving money with solar energy, architects and designers are finding creative ways to make solar panels more attractive. You would be amazed how well photovoltaic panels can become architectural design elements.
Colored solar panels provide more versatility to homeowners looking for ways to go solar without sacrificing the aesthetics of their home. Available in hues such as forest green, red, and emerald green, the panels more easily blend in and give a more sophisticated look than do silver, metallic-looking products.
Frameless solar panels, without aluminum framing surrounding them, offer more natural integration into an existing architecture –or into the new design –of a home. Their sleek design enables installers to incorporate them more seamlessly into the look and feel of a home. In addition, they generally take less time to install.
Rather than installing solar panels on the roofs of their houses, homeowners are also building awnings, carports, and other canopy-type structures to accommodate solar energy systems. This trend continues to grow as homeowners benefit from not only the cost-efficiency of solar power, but also from the attractiveness and functionality of the property enhancements.
Homeowners are finding and implementing solar solutions that make it possible to preserve the beauty of their homes while reaping the cost savings of going green. With the advances in solar technology and new design trends, the fear of making a property “ugly” shouldn’t drive anyone away from an investment that can save significantly on energy costs.
