Do Solar Panels Look Good?
While this topic is highly subjective, most people would agree that solar panels look good on a rooftop when they’re installed carefully. Planning and integrating the system will make solar panels look like part of the home, rather than just a tacked-on feature.
Installation methods are important. With the right installers, solar panel aesthetics will be much better than with an inexperienced installer.
There are some things to keep in mind as you think about how solar panels will look on your roof…
- Solar panels appear either crystalline black or deep blue, depending on the type of panel and the materials used. Modern panels are more likely to be black with black frames, giving a sleek appearance that looks good no matter the color of the rooftop.
- Uniformity is important. If solar panels are poorly installed with improper spacing and alignment, they’re not going to look great on your roof. An experienced solar installer will ensure that panels are aligned to each other and to the rooftop.
- Placement is related to efficiency. Depending on the size of your home and the style of the roof there might be a few viable locations for the solar panel array. However, this isn’t just a case of choosing what looks the best. Panels need to be oriented so that they get maximum sunlight exposure throughout the year.
- Solar panels don’t need to face the roadside, but this depends on the orientation of your house. In New York State, solar panels are oriented to the south.
Much of the overall aesthetic comes down to the quality of your solar panel installer. If you choose a company that understands how to properly plan, align, and install solar panels, you’ll come out with a clean and attractive rooftop installation.
