Seamless Solar Roof Technology – The Next Step For Homeowners – Urban Toronto


The solar industry is attempting to revive the planet from a growing climate crisis, but building constructors and the like are limited in their options to utilize solar technology. This is primarily due to traditional solar technology’s design. and production barriers.

Aesthetic Limitations

The most common solar option on the market for homeowners consists of dull blue and black solar cells that are noticeably applied onto the roofs of residential homes and the like. Solar technology hasn’t been largely adopted because solar material often lacks the desired aesthetics and flexibility – specifically rooftop solar panels. Not only this, but solar roof panels are also typically limited to utilizing a thick metal frame, making their application more noticeable on rooftops. 

This unfortunate combination forces homeowners to compromise on the aesthetics of their homes. Although these panels are the most economical solar option on the market, it forces homeowners to utilize unattractive panels.

Implementation Barriers

While traditional, bulky solar panels have been the product of choice for residential rooftop solar installations for years, over time, other options have increasingly broken into the market that combine aesthetics with energy generation. There are now many available options that generate electricity, while looking good and acting as a functional roof. 

However, these options have drawbacks – they are very hard to implement onto roofs, and are priced much higher than standard solar panels. Newer solar options typically fully integrate into the roof of a home, optimizing aesthetics but increasing installation difficulty and costs. Compared to traditional solar panels, they have a significantly lower return on investment due to implementation difficulty. The solar market needs attractive options that are easy to use, while maximizing payback.
