aesthetically pleasing solar panels

When installing solar there are the obvious benefits of using clean energy and taking back control of your energy costs. While these are two motivating factors for getting solar panels we think that the aesthetics of solar panels is an important consideration.

When deciding to put solar panels on your roof we understand their appearance may be a strong consideration for you. After all, your home may be one of your biggest investments, and you plan on looking at it daily. So why not install the most aesthetic panels possible? 

As experienced solar installers, we have taken a lot of thought and consideration into what makes a solar system look as nice as possible. Below are the best tips to make your solar system look as nice as possible. 


All Black Solar Panels

    • At Isaksen Solar, we only use all black solar panels on every installation. We think that black-on-black solar panels are the most visually appealing solar panels for homeowners because black solar panels on a roof add a sleek and seamless finish to your roof. 

Black Roof

    • If you have the choice, we think that there is a way to increase the aesthetic of your solar panel installation even more. That is pairing your all-black solar panels with black roof shingles. From our experience, the black solar panels on a black roof blend together nicely. 

Removing/Relocating Vent Pipes

  • Often times vent pipes end up in the middle of the solar array. This means missing solar panels, which not only reduces what your system will produce but also makes the solar system look incomplete
  • We recommend either relocating these vents to another part of the roof or removing them if they are unneeded. Oftentimes, in older homes, there are vent pipes that are no longer needed due to the removal of whichever appliance they were servicing.
