Tesla Solar Roof
In the fall of 2016 Tesla announced the Tesla Solar Roof and gave a release date of Summer 2017. With few details the solar roof was promised to be as cheep as a standard shingle roof. This month Tesla has released its solar roof to the public along with its costing.
What will the Tesla Solar Roof cost?
When you include the benefits of the solar production, Solar Roof will cost less than a regular roof. In fact it may earn you money – as an example, the out-of-pocket cost of a Solar Roof for a home in 1400 will be around $52,000, but after considering the tax credit and the value of energy it generates, the roof will actually pay for itself and earn you about $8,000 over 30 years.
Customize the amount of electricity your Solar Roof produces to fit your energy needs. This feature is made possible by using two types of glass tile, solar tile and non-solar tile. Both appear the same from street level. Made with tempered glass, Solar Roof tiles are more than three times stronger than standard roofing tiles. That’s why we offer the best warranty in the industry – the lifetime of your house, or infinity, whichever comes first.Solar Roof integrates with the Powerwall home battery, allowing you to use solar energy whenever you choose and providing uninterrupted electricity during grid outages.
