Abstract—Colours, texture and shapes of Buildings Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) have been fully explored in recent times to match mainstream architectural aesthetics. This study aims at getting some perspectives from Ghanaians when it comes to the colours and shapes of BIPVs. A quantitative method was used to reach out to 410 respondents in Ghana. 94.1% of the respondents agreed to adopt BIPV should there be a variety of colours, textures and shapes. The outcome indicates that aesthetic optimisation, in terms of introducing a variety of colours and shapes, tends to increase adoptability. Colours could be a top priority when it comes to BIPV in Ghana, as indicated by 65.8% of the respondents. 68.9% prefer bright colours, while 31.1% prefer dark colours. This study is expected to advise BIPV stakeholders on the aesthetic interest and preferences of consumers.
