Elon Musk took to Twitter to officially announce the availability of the Tesla Solar Roof tiles – an undoubtedly revolutionary energy product. According to Musk, “Smooth” and “Textured” black glass will be the first versions available while “Tuscan” and “French” slate are expected in early 2018.
The first two styles of the Solar Roof will be priced at about $21.85 per square foot. While U.S. orders will be delivered and installed later this year, overseas orders (for almost any country) will be deployed in 2018.
Tesla’s Solar Roof will be sold alongside the company’s Powerwall battery. With an integrated Powerwall, energy collected during the day is stored and made available any time, effectively turning a home into a personal utility. Solar energy can be generated, stored and used day and night, providing uninterrupted power even if the grid goes down.
Tesla’s Solar Roof will come with a warranty for the lifetime of your house, or infinity, whichever comes first. Proceed here to place your order.
