The ugly side of alternative energy.

Bolt on solar panels are ugly, and you shouldn’t put them on your house!

There I’ve said it!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti sustainability or alternative energy. When detailed properly, and in the right context, photovoltaic or solar type panels can be just fine, but what concerns me is the amount of houses in urban areas that are being ruined by having these unsightly solar panels just bolted to them.

Of course we need to look at alternative energy sources, and who doesn’t want to save money on their electric bills? But do we really have to ruin the look and feel of our neighbourhoods to do so? There are other ways of harnessing renewable energy and in my opinion we should be putting time, money and effort into making these affordable and doing away with bolt on panels…..

What do you reckon?
