Everything We Know About Tesla's Solar Roof


In 2016, Elon Musk presented a new product that may someday change the way we power our homes — it’s called Solar Roof.

Solar Roof is the brainchild of the Tesla-owned company, SolarCity. Unlike traditional solar panels, which are bulky and attach to your current roof, Solar Roof is designed to look like traditional roofing shingles.

Partnered with a battery pack called the Tesla Power Wall, homes can use power generated from the sun at night.

Solar Roof became available for pre-order on May 10. After a $1,000 deposit, Solar Roof will cost homeowners around $21.85 per square foot.

    Sorry, but the video told me nothing. How for instance are they going to be connected to a system, how does the system function, are the tiles connections guaranteed to last as long as the tiles, etc etc. .???
