There is no valid reason not to include stuff like this in new construction. Wish I'd been aware of it when I designed my house. There would several such panels to conserve energy.

Solar thermal collector.  Very interesting.  I need to learn more.

Solar panels made of pop cans heat homes at almost no cost

A great way to save money on utility bills is to use solar power for your home. One item that can really be useful is to have a solar thermal water heater.

"This option is small-scale and it is built around a reclaimed heat dispersal system from an old refrigerator (which you can get with the gas removed from your local dump). It has no pump as it is gravity fed and it requires no electricity to work. Just put it in the sun, turn on the water feed and you will get a slow but constant supply of very hot water..."

6 Best Solar Panels for Clean Energy Use at Home or While Camping

Conical Solar Panels . Even for photovoltaic (PV) panels, there’s such a thing as too much sun—when cells overheat, they become less efficient. V3Solar solved that problem with Spin Cell, a conical array that floats on magnets. An outer cone made of specialized lenses concentrates bands of sunlight on an inner cone covered with PV cells. The cells capture light energy but spin away before thermal energy can transfer.
