Don’t see a solar panel on the roof of this picture? Read more to find out why… Most people are impressed when they see a Tesla car roll by, and even though the price tags of these cars are high, many buyers like the style and their non-fossil fuel power. While the cars may be the most well known of Tesla’s products, Tesla’s overall goal is, “Generation, Storage, Transport”. This company wants to create/harness energy from the sun, store that power and get people from place to place. Finally, by making all of the products, “Beautiful, affordable, integrated” they hope to create products that people want to buy. The original electric car was ugly and under-powered, so Tesla created their version with great success. Likewise, current solar panels on people’s homes may be collecting solar energy, but many don’t like their aesthetics. The next big step for Tesla is to create a beautiful solar paneled roof that produces energy which can be stored and used for the home and car.
Look at the four options available for these roof tiles-
Tesla CEO Elan Musk stated,”It’s looking quite promising that a solar roof will actually cost less than a 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, lasts twice as long, costs less, and by the way generates electricity?’ It’s like, why would you get anything else?” If this product is exactly what he says it would be, then why wouldn’t we all jump on board and buy this roof? The actual production date is unknown for the Tesla Roof Tiles, so if you are considering buying solar panels now, you may want to wait until the date is set. Style and function on your home? Sounds great!
