Tesla has started taking orders for its new solar roof

Tesla has started taking orders for its new solar roof, a groundbreaking accomplishment that may help save the environment.

The future of solar panels and home power is here, as Tesla unveils solar roof and the Powerwall 2, which is their solar powered home battery. They revealed the the new groundbreaking roof in November last year.

The release of the new solar roof comes from the company’s acquisition of Solar City. The new Tesla roof is designed to replace normal roofing systems by harnessing energy from our sun.

While solar roofs are nothing new, what makes these ones different is the design. Instead of the conventional blue tinted panels that you see on the tops of some houses, these new panels will be virtually indistinguishable from non-solar roofs.

Just like with electric cars, which didn’t look good, had low range and didn’t have good performance, they looked like golf cars. People had a really hard time buying electric cars,” Elon Musk , CEO of Tesla told the crowd gathered at the announcement held at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. “Something similar needs to happen to solar. We need to make solar panels as appealing as electric cars have become.”

Musk debuted four houses in the presentation, with different styles of glass shingles. The first replicated a terra cotta finish, the second mirrored a French slate style, the third looked similar to a typical gray, textured suburban roof, while the fourth had a more futuristic, sleek look.

Elon Musk believes that soon, every house in neighborhoods would soon be solar, and with the new sleek designs, why not?

Over time, every house would be a solar house,” Musk said. “It’s a neighborhood where the aesthetics get better over time. You’ll want to call your neighbors over and say, ‘Check out the sweet roof.’”

Tesla has started taking orders for its new solar roof, and is even offering an infinite warranty for the panels. Installations are scheduled to start in June.
