Tesla New Solar Roof Panels
Stepping up their efforts to use solar power generation the Tesla company has come up with roof tiles that are great looking. The bulky panels have competition now and it’s not looking good for those big panels.
The New Panels closely resemble the used styles today. If you don’t like the big bulky panel, Now your home would look like every other home with great looking Solar tiles.
There are four styles the presented
- Textured Glass Tiles
- Slate Glass Tiles
- Tuscan Glass Tiles
- Smooth Glass Tiles
There is a draw back of 2% of efficiency loss, but that’s not to discredit the still 98% efficiency.
Cost Of Tiles
It’s not clear how much they will cost at the moment as the tesla company has not released pricing yet.
Some are reporting various pricing from 70 to 100 thousand at best, yet whose roof is paying itself off ? this is why solar investment is worth every penny.
The Tesla Tiles are made from quarts glass which is stronger and will last longer then the normal asphalt tiles. The asphalt tiles have a decent life span, but has to be replaced more than the Tesla Solar Tiles which last 2-3 times longer with proper maintenance.
They should last longer than the house . Elon Musk
The Power 2 battery is able to store twice the power capacity as the original version. Double the power means more savings and more free available energy to use daily. As it is expected to power a 4 bedroom home a day.
Things are being worked up in the Tesla companies and their ideas are going to make the world a better place for sure. When I found out the sun gives us enough energy in one day to power entire earth for hundreds of year, I realized how wrong mankind went with their mass investments into oil.
Eventually more people will come around as the advancements become more efficient and durable. Stay updated and visit the Tesla Site : Tesla.com

Update – It’s reported on electrek.co
” During the special shareholders meeting to approve the merger with SolarCity, which they approved by 85%, he said that he was coming back from a meeting with the SolarCity engineering team about the solar roof and that he now feels confident that they could deliver the product at a lower cost than a regular roof – even before energy production “.
” And it’s an incredibly bold claim since if it turns out to be true, no homeowner would have any reason not to choose a solar roof when buying a new roof”.
This move will make solar roofing cost less than normal roofing costs. Now people will have great incentive to move or apply solar roofing to their homes or businesses. This is including labor costs and before we apply the monthly electric savings. Basically get a solar roof ( cheaper than normal roof costs ) as start saving on your electric bills and contribute to make earth a more sustainable with free solar energy.
“It’s looking quite promising that a solar roof actually cost less than normal roof before you even take the value of electricity into account. So the basic proposition would be ‘Would you like a roof that looks better than a normal roof, last twice as long, cost less and by the way generates electricity’ why would you get anything else.” Elon Musk
There are options and variety of pricing depending on the customer, their orders and design choice. The service is planned to begin next year
