While the Solar Roof system still costs about a third more than a traditional photovoltaic rooftop set-up, its visual appeal could make the transition much more palatable to many potential rooftop solar wannabes. There, they can also calculate the estimated upfront cost of a solar roof.
"These are really the three legs of the stool for a sustainable energy future", Musk said. He says that the power of sun goes to the batteries and that is how all the roof owners will have electricity at night.
According to the chief Executive officer of Tesla and SolarCityElon musk, on the whole consisting of such panels the roof will be cheaper than the installation of conventional tile roofing, although more expensive than bitumen.
"When you have this installed on your house, you'll have the best roof in the neighborhood". Tesla guarantees that the Soar Roof can supply solar energy for at least 30 years. The pricing unveiled on Wednesday was less than many analysts were expecting.
Musk's confidence notwithstanding, 2017 will shape up to be a pivotal year for Tesla. As for the final price, Tesla Solar has created a cost calculator (powered by Google's Project Sunroof) that will give you a ballpark estimate specific to your needs. But they're not yet for everyone.
The price of a Solar Roof depends on which part of the roof will be equipped with solar cells.
Looking at the US, Tesla's home market and the first place where the roofs will be sold, it means that replacing the roof of a 185-square metre home in NY state-with 40 per cent coverage of active solar tiles and battery backup for night-time use-would cost about $US50,000 after federal tax credits. Over a 30-year mortgage, you'll replace the roof at least once and possibly twice. Tesla is taking a $1,000 deposit and hopes to start the first installations in June.
The company states its solar roofs would cost between 10 and 15 percent less than a common new roofing system plus standard solar panels.
The electricity generated from the solar roof can be used to power a home when combined with the Powerwall battery. Tesla's solar roof, to be sure, is still for the well-to-do.
The roof looks like pretty ordinary, from all angles.
Tesla will be under a lot of pressure if its Model 3 and the solar roof turn out to be highly-hyped flops.
