This summer I'm going to install a solar pergola I designed for my backyard. The idea is that this is a way to install solar panels in my yard in a way that looks attractive and also provides a functional way to use the mounting structure. The pergola will allow the tilt of the solar panels to be adjustable while at the same time creating a shaded outdoor spot in my yard which can be used in the warm weather as a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. It will also serve as an arbor upon which I am going to grow grapes to use in eating or making grape juice.
The idea is to help dispel the myth that solar panels are ugly and detract from the look of a home!!
