Sistine Solar, Inc. is thrilled to announce that customers can now pre-order SolarSkin, customizable solar panels designed to seamlessly blend in with residential roofs. Since seeing is believing, tune in to Designing Spaces, the award-winning home improvement show on Lifetime TV, on Fri, Jun 10 at 7am EST to see a custom SolarSkin installation on a beautiful Katahdin Cedar Log Home.

Much like Apple and Tesla accomplished with smartphones and electric cars, Sistine Solar is using design to drive the mass adoption of clean, cheap and renewable energy. To do that, the company developed SolarSkin, solar panels that come in any color, image or pattern -- for example, a pattern of a red Spanish tile roof -- and thus transforms a traditional, strictly utilitarian solar installation into one that elegantly marries form and function. Homeowners can now buy a solar system, which not only saves money, generates clean energy, and increases the value of a home, but also blends in with -- or accentuates -- their desired aesthetic.
"Solar panels have been stuck in the last century, much like the 1915 Ford Model T, 'you can get any color as long as its black.' That's what makes SolarSkin so exciting, it's 21st century technology -- homeowners can now choose solar panels in any color, image or pattern," commented Ido Salama, co-founder of Sistine.
With an award from the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, the company has been able to accelerate the pace of commercialization and plans to deliver tested and certified solar systems to pre-order customers by Q1 2017.
