An Interesting Roof Integrated Solar Water Heating Collector for Picky HOAs

Just ran across this interesting collector design from Velux -- the people who do the very popular skylights.

The collector sits flat to the roof and looks exactly like a regular Velux skylight.  There are no visible plumbing connections.  They use the same flashing system on the collectors as they do on their skylights.

It seems like this look might be a lot more acceptable to a picky HOA?

The SRCC performance ratings are comparable to other good flat plate collectors.

Mixed skylights and solar collectors.
Seems like a good idea, and I don't see any reason there could not be a DIY one.

More details on the Velux site...
