We all know that solar is a practical, smart investment. It’s good for the environment, frees people to control their own electricity production and is one of the fastest-growing industries (read: JOB CREATORS) in the country. But one of the complaints (often heard from homeowners’ associations) is that solar panels are ugly.
We beg to differ — and apparently, so do artists around the world. Here are 11 of the most artful uses of solar panels we’ve ever seen.
1. Solar Installation, Zwickau, Saxony (Germany)
We love this installation in front of the Zwickau University of Applied Sciences in Zwickau, Saxony (Germany). Photographer André Karwath took the photo back in 2005. The goal is to increase the visibility of solar installations — as if Germany needed the help.
