Sharp Solar Shingles

If the ungainliness of solar panels have been holding you back from installing some rooftop modules on your home—or you have a home-owners association that prevent you from going green in any way that might affect surrounding property values—these panels from Sharp fit in alongside traditional shingles for a more integrated look. Of course, you won’t be able to adjust your panels to take best advantage of varying angles throughout the year, but for some aesthetics trump efficiency.

Using the “EZ Calculator” on Sharp’s site, a modest system would cost about $27k to install but only cost around $10k after rebates and tax credits.

    These solar panels would crack when you walked on them. I have to walk on my roof for various reasons.
