Tesla CEO and SolarCity chairman, Elon Musk unveiled a new product, a roof integrated with solar panels, at an event on October 28 in San Francisco.
Over the years, the solar industry has been working on these type of combined roof and solar panels, but cost and efficiency has been the bane.
With this, you can run your home on solar power, stored in a slim battery that hangs on your wall and then use that electricity to power your home and car.
Tesla’s Three Point Agenda for Solar Roofs:
Powerful: A roof with hidden solar tiles that powers your home with clean, renewable energy.
Beautiful: A roof that complements the beauty of your home.
Affordable: A roof that costs less than an equivalent roof when you include the projected savings from your utility bill.
Various financing options will also be available.
Production Start Date: Mid 2017, Pre-Ordering available.
