Enjoy the power of Tesla at home with smart roof tiles!

31 October 2016

Tesla’s roof tiles are integrated with solar panels that convert solar energy into electricity to help power your home and save on the electric bill.

Tesla’s rooftop solar tiles turn sunlight into electricity for immediate use or storage. The tiles help lower electric bills by generating their own power and giving you more control over energy consumption and production. Solar produces zero carbon emissions so reduces the household use on fossil fuels. 

Elon Musk has not named a price for the roof tiles, only stating they will be cheaper than installing solar panels on a traditional roof. 

Also new, the Tesla Powerwall is designed to integrate with the solar tiles, storing the unused electricity and automatically releasing it when the sun is not shining. This means solar energy can be available at all hours of the day. Mr Musk has claimed it will cost around £4,500.

Tesla’s new products were unveiled at a launch in Universal Studios, Los Angeles, on what was the set for the TV show Desperate Housewives.
