Elon Musk and his company have combined together with Solar City to work on making the solar roof of the future.
The picture above is one of Tesla’s first homes that they tested the roof on, and if you ask me it doesn’t look bad at all. It looks a lot like shingles and the blue that it reflects looks very nice.
Tesla’s new solar roof product, will actually cost less to manufacture and install than a traditional roof—even before savings from the power bill. “Electricity,” Musk said, “is just a bonus.”
These roofs above have been tested to withstand hail at up to 200 mph, and can take nearly 3x the force of a standard roofing tile.
I find this amazing that people in the next few years will be putting solar roofing on their homes that not only looks good and cost the same amount as their traditional roofing, but also produces electricity for their home and even for their vehicle, which is amazing!
