Tesla solar roof set to revolutionise homes

Almost invisible on a roof, solar roof tiles incorporate a unique solar film, specifically designed for Tesla, that allow the tiles to efficiently convert sunlight to power a home.

There is plenty of buzz around the launch of Tesla's introduction of solar roofing. Due to start taking orders this year, the unveiling of Tesla's solar roof is bound to revolutionise the housing industry, with massive savings on energy. Tesla are also looking at different versions of the original model to see how even more benefits can be introduced. One such benefit is the version that allows for batteries to store energy captured via the solar panels for later use.

There is a lot of speculation surrounding Tesla's solar roof tiles at this moment, but Tesla have advised that they plan to roll out a product that is more efficient than current solar alternatives - and that the installation of a Tesla solar roof will result in reduced electricity bills. Having said that, pricing has not yet been made public knowledge, but research indicates that the installation of a solar roof will offer substantial savings in the long term.
