Tesla blows roof off solar market, all part of master plan

Tesla blows roof off solar market, all part of master plan

Musk's logic is that by building solar generation units that resemble a traditional roof, Tesla could overcome one stubborn hurdle in solar adoption - one of perceived poor aesthetics. The company believes the Solar Roof's pricing is highly competitive, but for Tesla, the price will have to be attractive, given the number of companies that have tried and failed to change the solar industry with a similar product - such as Dow Chemical. In a tweet to a consumer, Musk said that black glass smooth and textured will be shipped first with Tuscan and French Slate shipping later.

A 1700-square-foot roof in Southern California, with half the roof covered in "active" solar tiles, would cost about $34,300 after a federal tax credit, according to the calculator.

Also the solar shingles are much more durable than traditional shingles, and Tesla is raising some eyebrows with its lifetime warranty. But homes would only need between 30 and 40 percent of their roof tiles to be solar; the rest would be Tesla's cheaper non-solar tiles which would blend in with the solar ones.

Tesla is known to have one of the best technologies for its EVs, and it is now proving its worth in its solar energy products as well.

The solar roofs are now available for pre-order at Tesla with deposits going for $1,000, Bloomberg reports.

The future of clean energy has arrived with the latest roofing tiles from Tesla and Solar City.

The cost of adding a Tesla Powerwall battery to the system is an additional $7,000. After that, you can also charge your electric vehicle. He says that the power of sun goes to the batteries and that is how all the roof owners will have electricity at night.

"SolarCity is now a Tesla Company". "So the basic proposition would be, 'Would you like a roof that looks better than a normal roof, lasts twice as long, costs less, and by the way generates electricity?' It's like, why would you get anything else?" Someone willing to plunk down $35,000 for an electric vehicle is also somebody that might be interested in a $50,000 solar roof. The company's mass maker electric vehicle, the Model 3, will begin rolling off the assembly line in a few months.
