As the world moves towards sustainable energy, Singapore, too, is taking advantage of the abundance of sunlight it receives by promoting the use of solar panels. Indeed, the benefits of having a solar panel roof are numerous, but at the same time, homeowners are also conscious of the aesthetics of their home, and solar panels can sometimes be perceived as bulky and unattractive. However, did you know that there are different kinds of solar panels in the market with different designs and styles? Here are some examples. 

Silver Frame, White Backing

Silver Frame, White Backing-Solar Panel Singapore

This solar panel in Singapore tends to be more budget-friendly out of all the other available solar panels. It features an aluminium frame and the white backing is visible between the cells. This solar panel reflects more heat, keeping the panel cooler and increases efficiency. Due to its industrial look, they are popular for inner-city buildings and fit in well with the current industrial chic trend. In particular, they look great on metal roofs in dense urban landscapes.

Black solar panels are increasingly being offered by solar panel specialists due to customer demand, as black makes your solar panel less conspicuous on the roof without compromising much on performance as the backing sheet is still white. These solar panels are popular with modern houses as they take the harsh edge off the overall aesthetics compared to silver-framed panels.

Having an all-black solar panel roof goes a long way towards improving the looks of the panels and making them less obvious. However, the downside to the enhanced aesthetics is that the performance may be adversely affected due to the increased operating temperatures. That being said, all-black panels go well with traditional slate roofs and aren’t very expensive. When viewed from a distance, the panels blend into the roof quite effortlessly.

Coloured Solar PV

Thanks to modern solar panel technology, you can now get solar PV panels of virtually any hue, either to stand out or blend in. With these, you no longer have to worry about whether your solar panel roof will stick out like a sore thumb; you can now get it to match any colour, giving you more licence to be creative with your home’s design. 

In-Roof Solar PV Mounting

If you’re looking for greater conspicuousness, you can set your PV panels into the roof, replacing sections of your roof fabric. In-roof systems cost around the same as on-roof ones, and there may even be some savings due to the reduced need for roof fabric. Overall, the performance of an in-roof solar panel in Singapore is about 2% lower as all solar PV systems require good ventilation to operate optimally. If you’re opting for this, we recommend consulting with a solar panel specialist about the pros and cons. The good news is that with new heat recovery technology, you can further reduce your heating bills through these solar panels.
