Colored Solar Panels Bring New Light To Renewable Energy

Why are solar panels always colored with a shade of blue or black? It’s a question that’s likely crossed your mind at some point and you didn’t even realize it. We’ve seen some manipulation with photovoltaic cells, such as Tesla’s Solar Roof and the transparent window solar cells. However, those blue and black tints have always been dominant colors in the industry, but not for much longer.

Researchers from the Netherlands may have found a way to manufacture traditional solar panels with multiple colors. Giving people an option instead of the default blue would make them more attractive to businesses. For example, a different color like green, red, or white could blend in with the theme of the building or company.
