Solar Cells that look like Terracotta Tiles?
The only solar cell I've ever seen that didn't look like a giant rectangle was this little, thin sheet that was in the back of a Wired magazine. It could eliminate the eyesore issue that you might run into with the neighbors.
I guess the second problem that you'd run into would be how costly this would be. Since you would have to buy them, install them, then wire them through the attic.
And for the record, I know absolutely nothing about solar panels, I was just brainstorming ideas....
Ideas? Suggestions? Possible? Impossible?
