Solar panel technology has evolved a lot over the last decade or so, and so has their popularity and affordability. Many homeowners across the country are looking for a way to power their homes sustainably and affordably, and as we continue to experience extreme weather incidents and feel the effects of climate change, investing in clean and renewable energy sources will become more and more important.
We’ve recently seen many advances in solar panel technology, including:
- Floating solar farms, sometimes called floatovoltaics. Installed on reservoirs or other large bodies of water, floating solar farms don’t take up valuable space on land, and they help with water evaporation by blocking the sunlight.
- Building-integrated photovoltaics, also called BIPV solar technology. This means the solar panels are seamlessly integrated into the existing structure of a building, like canopies, facades, curtain walls, and skylight systems.
- Solar skins. These are custom designs that are embedded into solar panels, much like a large advertisement on the side of a city bus.
- Solar fabric. Solar energy doesn’t just power your home – researchers are developing technology to integrate solar fabric into t-shirts, winter coats, and other items of clothing.
