I love the idea of generating clean energy with solar panels, but I'm not sure if they will look good on our backyard gazebo. Do you think they will be an eyesore?
It seems to me that the main point of solar panels is to generate electricity, not to add to the beauty of the gazebo. Beauty can be achieved in other ways.
Solar panels can add aesthetic appeal to your pergola if installed correctly. There are many sleek and modern designs available, and you can even choose panels in different colors and textures to match your existing decor. But also do not forget about the efficiency of solar panels, the most important thing is that they are effective, you can read about it here: https://a1solarstore.com/blog/solar-panels-for-pergola-electric-patio.html . As for me if the gazebo will be in the backyard, no one even see those solar panels, so it's okay if it will not look nice.
