Solar panel camouflage

Coloured solar panels can now blend in with buildings aesthetics thanks to technology created by CSEM – a not-for profit based in Switzerland.

The technology allows panels of any colour to be used to recover energy from the Sun’s rays. There are also no visible connection. Meaning that panels can be in keeping with the building, road etc and be inconspicuous.

How does it work?

Simple,
A layer of specially designed plastic is placed over the PV (photovoltaic) cell, instead of impeding the sunlight the plastic filters out much of spectrum of visible light but allows the useful infra red light to pass through.
