Green Idea: Paint on Solar Panel

Green Idea: Paint on Solar Panel

We have seen solar panels that look like leaves, integrated into roof tiles and even disguised as window shutters, but this is the first paint on solution we have come across.

The issue with including solar panels into any design is that they look like, well, solar panels. This idea coats steel portions of a building with multiple layers of special paint, in essence building up a working solar cell. If this becomes reality, incorporating solar cells into commerical and residential buidlings will be a very simple processs, without taking away from the visual aesthetic of the building.
