A new solar roof has been announced by Tesla. It’s a part of Tesla’s plan for total clean energy integration. They defend that the sun provides more than enough energy in just one hour to supply our planet’s energy needs for an entire year. “Your home can capture this free, abundant energy source through rooftop solar tiles, turning sunlight into electricity for immediate use or storage in a Powerwall battery”, they say on the official website.

Solar roof features
  • Powerful: Solar tiles hidden on your roof power your home with clean, renewable energy.
  • Beautiful: Four distinct styles to complement your home.
  • Affordable: Lower cost than a traditional roof when combined with projected utility bill savings.

Solar roof tiles are manufactured with durable, long lasting tempered-glass in four styles that complement and power your home. Solar tiles integrated into the roof are invisible when viewed from the street, yet are fully exposed to the sun from above. The cells, exposed to the sun, are not visible to the eye.
