When you think of solar panels, you probably think of those bulky unsightly eye catching panels that you got introduced to when you were younger. They seemed like a thing of the future that doesn’t really fit in with modern day technology. Hearing about solar powered cars and houses powered by solar energy use to be a thing of the far future. Thing is, things have changed, and so have the appearance of Solar Panels.
As stated by Stephanie Rogers from MNN, “The next generation of solar panels will bear little resemblance to their predecessors, at least on the outside. Companies like SRS Energy, Kyocera and Suntech Power are working with building suppliers on alternatives to clunky solar panels that will satisfy the demands of picky property owners, creating products like solar roofing tiles that blend in with the traditional clay versions found on many Southern California homes.”
At the moment, people do have the ability to choose to switch to solar powered energy sources, but with that it brings a lot of problems and incontinence as they have to deal with a gap in energy provided to the house, and often they are displeased with the end appearances of the solar panels. In the near future, Solar powered houses will be an option in real estate. It will make people be able to choose an environmentally friendly option for their energy source, without sacrificing the looks of a normal suburban house. For right now though, this new innovation is in its early stages so real estate buyers will have to hold out for a few more years before this is on the market.
