Straight from the Tesla blog post about Tesla offering to acquire SolarCity was this fun little nugget: "We would be able to maximize and build on the core competencies of each company. Tesla’s experience in design, engineering, and manufacturing should help continue to advance solar panel technology, including by making solar panels add to the look of your home." I'm curious to see what people think of this. Might be a fun little topic for discussion. While cost and efficiency are paramount, It almost sounds like they also want to improve the look of solar panel installations. It might seem silly at first to give weight to aesthetics, but people do care how things look and looking good does offer a competitive advantage. What opportunities might there be to improve the look of solar panel installations? Personally, I'd like to see some triangular panel offerings to better fit available roof space. In addition to maximizing how much you can fit on the roof, I think it would look better as well. There have been a couple of triangular panel offerings that we have touched on in other threads, but the offerings to date have been very limited (and perhaps discontinued as well?).
