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 Mask, soon the innovative roof for homes will be available to the public.
According to Elon Musk, the company plans to start the global implementation of solar roofs by the end of 2020. In addition, the billionaire once again recalled the increasing pace of distribution of "green" coverage in the United States and invited those who want to become part of the Tesla Solar Roof team, noting that experience is not required since specialists will be trained directly during employment.
Elon Musk did not list specific countries where 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 solar panels are installed in the roof tile, which significantly reduces the cost of installation and purchase of such construction material. One square meter of the roof from Tesla is estimated at $235. The estimated power will be 48.5 W / peak / square meter.
