One undeniable thing about solar panels on a building – they look like solar panels. And often aren’t that attractive. Until now. Solar Ivy is a printed film photovoltaic cell available in a variety of shapes, colors and efficiencies. The idea is to array the leaves across a structure in such a way that they look like natural ivy-like growth while producing up to four watts of electricity per leaf. The shapes are small and adaptable enough that they can even be used to render a logo on the side of an office building. So, in a few years your favorite ivy-covered building may be leading the march off the power grid.
