Triangular solar panels for odd shaped roofs

It was a simple enough enquiry from a homeowner on Solar Panel Quoter – could we recommend an installer who would use triangular shaped solar panels, as his roof shape would mean a lot of wasted space using rectangular solar panels.

We’d never heard of the like before but we were curious if such a solar panel existed.

Apparently, Sharp manufacture a triangular shaped panel but we believe this is being / has been discontinued due to manufacturing costs and the loss in generating capacity of a shaped panel.
