Peel-and-stick solar panels

See a fast-motion video showing 2.25 kilowatts of Lumeta solar panels installed in 34 minutes.

These will be featured at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference June 24 to 27 in San Francisco. These thin panels are only available for commercial use, not residential, but it shows you the direction we’re heading. The company does offer terra cotta-colored S-tiles and panels of flat tiles for residential installation that blend with the existing design of the roof.

Plus, another company brings solar light to the darkness in off-the-grid rural India.
