Harvesting solar power has become... cool! Technology has come so far that there is now a flexible, roll-on shingle to compliment solar paint cells . Since the 1970's, homeowners switching to solar power had to make do with ugly, rack-mounted panels on their roofs. Finally technology has caught up with aesthetics and consumer demand.

The shingles are installed over new or existing roof sheathing, then an electrician or trained roofer has to wire the units together and tie them into your home's electrical system. Although one shingle only generates enough power to run a fan, an entire roof's worth of shingles can turbocharge an entire home. Stats for Simple Solar Shingles Trending: Older & Warm
