The presentation of solar roofs, which the head of Tesla Elon Musk proposed to use as an alternative energy source, took place in 2016. Since then, engineers made changes several times, and then local sales were announced. If you believe the next statement of the Mask, soon the innovative roofing for houses will become publicly available.
According to Elon Musk, the company plans to begin global sales of solar roofs by the end of 2020. In addition, the billionaire once again recalled the increase in the spread of green coverage in the United States and invited those who wish to become part of the Tesla Solar Roof team, noting that experience is not required, as specialists will be trained directly during employment.
Elon Musk did not list the specific countries in which the company’s solar roofs will be available, noting only that the panels will be manufactured at the Gigafactory plant in New York with further geographical expansion to other regions.
The peculiarity of the Tesla solution is that the solar panels are mounted in the roof tile, which significantly reduces the cost of installation and purchase of such building material. One square meter of roof from Tesla is estimated at $ 235. Estimated power is 48.5 W / peak / square meter.
