What a prefab smart home—solar powered by design—looks like

This—solar powered by design—setup from an episode of the series “Home of the Future” by Curbed, produces enough energy to power roughly 60 percent of the home’s energy needs


Moving on from bulky tack-on solar panels with which we’re all too familiar, to sleeker, low-profile designs that cleverly blend into, if not actually serve as the roofing of the house is a growing trend.



This particular setup, from an episode of the series “Home of the Future” by Curbed, produces enough energy to power roughly 60 percent of the home’s needs, while unused energy is stored in a lithium-ion battery.

The modular nature of the solar cells means it could also be scaled up to support greater energy needs.
