Solar Roofs Are Changing for the Better

March 16, 2017

If you have considered installing a solar panel system on your house, but have been reluctant due to the desire to keep a clean roof line, you are in luck. Tesla, the leader in electric cars, is now aiming to be the leader in solar roofs. There was a big announcement made by Tesla recently, highlighting their latest innovation, the attractive solar roof tile.

Keeping in line with their mission to help people around the world lessen their carbon footprint, Tesla has come up with a new solar panel system which has the look of a fine quality roof. The solar cells are placed underneath tempered class shingles, which are said to be highly resistant and long lasting.

What’s even better is the cost. When you combine the energy savings of a solar roof, the cost of these innovative systems is less than a standard roof. Add in their long life, and it’s possible that you may need not replace your roof again.

The new Tesla Solar Roof is also designed with the ideal eco-home in mind. In order to make electric cars and homes as energy efficient as possible, Tesla has also released its Powerwall2, a solar battery designed to work with the solar roof to not only keep your car charged, but run your entire home during nighttime hours, and then some, as the storage capacity of the Powerwall2 is extensive.

Modern homes with minimalist lines will appreciate the sleek charcoal smooth glass tiles. For a bit of character to your roof, the same color is also available in a textured version. If you like something a little more traditional, the slate glass tiles have the look of stone roofs, and the Tuscan glass tiles reflect the red vibrancy of terracotta, an excellent choice for many California homes.

If you are in line for a new roof, or are considering the change to solar power for your home, the new Tesla Solar Roof could be just what you are looking for. If you are planning to sell your home in the coming months, an upgrade to solar will add value to your property; this new type of roof could add even more.
