Solar Roofing Solutions from Tesla
Tesla is the leading manufacturer of electric vehicles and energy storage solutions. Led by Elon Musk, Tesla is innovative and creative in providing energy efficient solutions. Tesla strongly believes in reducing the dependency on fossil fuels and is partnering with other organizations to leverage solar energy.
Tesla is the world leader in electric vehicles, energy storage solutions, and solar roofing systems. Tesla's company SpaceX is also planning to send unmanned spaceships - Dragon capsules - to Mars to explore more about the planet.
Recently, Tesla partnered with Solar City to provide innovative solar roofing systems. This will reduce the dependency on fossil fuels for energy and reduce the carbon emissions. The solar shingles are manufactured with latest technology to withstand impact resistance, high wind resistance, moisture resistance, and algae resistance. The solar glass tiles have inbuilt layer of circuit that captures sun's energy and transmits to the Powerwall installed on the premises. The Powerwall will convert the solar energy to electric energy which in turn could be used for the electric vehicles or to power other appliances in the property. This system from Tesla provides a comprehensive solution for generating electricity right on one's own roof top and garage.
The partnership with Solar City has enabled Tesla to leverage the solar energy solutions, renewable energy, and generating safe energy. In communities with multiple tesla roofing, the extra power generated could be sent back to the grid and used whenever required by the community members.
The glass tiles used for roofing systems are competing with asphalt shingles, metal roofing, slate shingles, wood shake shingles, and other roofing types. The glass tiles from Tesla are made of tempered glass and are highly impact resistant. The glass tiles eliminate the bulky look offered by the solar panels as they have solar layer inbuilt. For a viewer from street, the solar circuit is not visible but the cells are exposed from above to get direct sunlight. Also, for steep slope roofs, the solar tiles from Tesla assist in capturing the direct sunlight.
Different styles of solar tiles are available such as Tuscan glass tile, Slate glass tile, Textured glass tile, and Smooth glass tile. The distinct style of the glass tiles provide a luxurious curb appeal to the property. Glass tiles from Tesla are tested and installed at the model houses built by Tesla. The tiles must be connected through electrical wires to the inverter which can convert the energy to be used by the property or vehicles.
Here are the advantages of Tesla roofing over normal roofing:
Tesla roofing has some disadvantages when compared to normal roofing:
You can check the cost of your roof by entering the square footage of your home in their solar calculator. If you do not want to generate more electricity, you can opt for a combination of Tesla's solar tiles and non-solar tiles. This way you can customize the energy generation of your solar roof.
Currently, Tesla's solar tiles are installed only through licensed contractors from Solar City. They may expand their network in the future. You can signup for their partnership and ambassador program for future updates. Current coverage is limited for only far east and far west states and may reach the MidWest region soon. Customers can now order the smooth and texture glass tiles and future order the tuscan and slate tiles.
Tesla's glass shingles measure 8.65 inch wide and 11 inch long. They can be applied on roof with pitches 3:12 and up to vertical roofs. The different ratings for the Tesla's glass tiles include:
