Solar Cells that look like Terracotta Tiles? Answered
So I had an idea that you could make solar cells that looked like Terracotta roofing tiles example. I figured if they were durable enough you could cover an entire roof in them. They're definitely no uglier than standard shingles. Also figured since they're curved you might get more performance out of them, but I could be completely wrong and they could be absolutely useless up there.
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?
