Tesla Announces Incredible New Plan To Build Solar Roofs Across the US

In the future, homes could be fitted with solar roofs-rather than solar panels-which integrate well with Tesla technology. 

There are about 5 million roofs constructed each year in the United States, which is exactly why Tesla Motors is teaming up with SolarCity to bring a new invention to the American market. Rather than selling just solar panels that can be placed onto any roof, both companies are seeking to build roofs made of complete solar panels that work compatibly with Tesla’s home battery storage technology. This would mean that homeowners would be able to utilize solar power even at night. 

BusinessInsider reports that during second quarter earnings conference call for solarCity, the chairman of SolarCity and Elon Musk have introduced the concept: “It’s a solar roof as opposed to a module on a roof. I think this is really a fundamental part of achieving differentiated product strategy, where you have a beautiful roof. It’s not a thing on the roof. It is the roof, which is a quite difficult engineering challenge and not something that is available anywhere else.”

The CEO of SolarCity, Lyndon Rive, who is Elon Musk’s cousin, also gave out details on two new products that will be released by the end of the year.

However, th timing is curious as the merger between these two companies isn’t set for completion until the fourth quarter. In explaining his strategy to further enhance homes around the globe, Musk says: “You don’t want to put solar panels on a roof you know you are going to replace. However, if your roof is nearing end of life and you have to get a new roof anyway… why not have a solar roof that is better in many other ways as well.”

There is little known facts about how the roofs will work, but the information will be shared in due time. During this call, Musk compared solar roofs to a Tesla car. It is reported that customers will be given custom preferences and then a kit will be shipped to you so that the product can be installed.

Finally, Musk has assured that these new products will not harm SolarCity’s current business in solar panels. Instead, Tesla will co-op with SolarCity’s current installations on existing roofs. When the merger between these two companies is complete, expect to hear more about the products.
