What You Need to Know About Tesla’s Solar Roof

What You Need to Know About Tesla’s Solar Roof

All living organisms depend on the sun in one way or another. It is no wonder that technology has allowed people to convert the sun’s energy into electricity. Since the sun cannot be depleted, this form of energy is sustainable. Solar roofs can fit in perfectly with the architectural design of a house. They keep your house pretty while converting sunlight into energy. They have a powerwall battery that helps store energy for future use. Tesla’s Solar Roof, however, still leaves a lot of unanswered questions. This post will answer some of those questions.

Invisible Solar Cells

These cells help to personalize the amount of energy produced by the solar roof based on the needs of a home.

Cost of roof and powerwall battery

The cost varies based on the size of your roof. Also in the cost is; getting rid of your old roof, cost of material, installation fees and any necessary upgrades. For transparency purposes, Tesla has a Solar Roof Calculator that provides users with estimates of the whole system cost. The cost for powerwall is inclusive of the battery, installation cost and the complimentary hardware.

Tax Credit

30% Investment Tax Credit is applied on the roof and the powerwall battery. Full tax credit is available to people with federal income tax liability that’s not less than he credit card’s value.

Tile Warranty

Infinity or the lifetime of your house, whichever comes first.” That is Tesla’s warranty on these solar roof tiles. The tiles are made from tempered glass which is at least 6 times more durable than regular glass.


As long as one has sufficient roof space and they live in a place with the right solar conditions, the solar is efficient and reliable. The powerwall battery makes it possible to stored solar energy whenever one has the need.

Solar Tile Coverage

The coverage of solar tiles depends on your home’s needs. For homes with high consumption of electricity, a wider coverage is recommended. Low tile coverage may lead to insufficient energy production while very high coverage could cause excessive production of energy. Tile coverage is personalized based on monthly electric bills.

Monthly Loan Payment

It is possible to make payments for your Tesla solar roof using mortgage. The loan amount is the same as the total cost of the solar roof without the federal tax credit. This is beneficial because there is usually a tax deduction on mortgage interest.


Tesla solar roof tiles are half the weight of standard tiles. This makes the solar roof appealing to the eye.

Flat Roofs

Flat-roofed homes cannot have Tesla solar roofs installed. This is because they pose electrical risks and can be difficult to waterproof.
