Are solar panels ugly?

Solarpv In Santa Monica, California, home of the really pretty people, solar panels are fine as long as you hide them from view. That is according to a blog posting at the L.A. Times.

It was the City Council who recently voted 4-1 that for some residences solar panels must be installed "in the location that is least visible from the street."

I wonder what it would be like if true beauty was not just skin deep, but linked to function. For instance, what if a woman's aging skin was a testament to her years of wisdom and experience, rather than something to be injected and stretched into a mask of horror?

It's the same with solar panels. What they represent — a household contributing less to the destruction of the planet than many of the neighbors — is beautiful.
