Today, my friend Radek is getting new photovoltaic "balustrades" -- that is, the vertical panels at the edge of the balcony, at his apartment in Zurich. The buildings were spaced and placed to minimize shadowing, and tall trees have been replaced by shorter ones (since this photo was taken.)
The wires are hidden under the deck, and the module is sandwiched between two strong glass plates. Residents are not allowed to hang anything from the railing.
