Tesla have officially started taking pre-orders for the Solar Roof Tiles with the first deliveries going to California before hitting the mass market.
The future is here! Tesla have started offering pre-order for their first two solar roof tile styles. While the option to pre-order is currently only available in the United States the future is already so much brighter!
The company announced the innovative invention in 2016 with a roll-out in 2017. That day is nearly here! Currently only textured and smooth tiles are available for pre-order. The Tuscan style and Slate style will become available in 2018.
Solar Roof complements your home’s architecture while turning sunlight into electricity. With an integrated Powerwall battery, energy collected during the day is stored and made available any time, effectively turning your home into a personal utility.
Glass solar tiles are so durable they are warrantied for the lifetime of your house, or infinity, whichever comes first.
Each tile style comes with two types of glass tile, solar tile and non-solar tile. There is no visible difference between the two from a street level. The recommended number of solar tiles depends on what the households average electricity bill comes to.
Installations of the roof tile will start as early as June 2017. The first to start in California and then to move to other states until the entire world is fitted.
Installations will start in June, beginning with California and rolling out to additional markets over time. When Solar Roof is rolled out in a particular market, Solar Roof customers will be installed based on when their order was placed.
These are exciting times for green energy!
