Solar power is in a continual state of innovation and evolution. One of the biggest advances of the year is the "solar skin" concept.
One of the main roadblocks to solar panels really taking off at residential level is that many householders regard solar panels piled upon their roofs to be unsightly looking. Luckily, one company has come up with an answer. Sistine Solar, a small solar design start-up based in Boston, has come up with the concept of customizing the appearance of a home's solar panels. Its solar skin products enable solar panels to match the look of a roof without sacrificing panel efficiency. Sistine Solar's solar skin products are currently hitting the US market and could lead to a solar revolution, with rooftop panels being re-branded as a beautiful luxury item.
