Tesla has announced the release of a new generation of Solar Roof shingles, generating electricity from the sun. This option will cost customers less than a new roof and separate solar panels for it.
The third version of Solar Roof is more powerful than the previous ones and most importantly – it will be cheaper thanks to cost savings.
The head of Tesla, Elon Musk promises that the installation of shingles will not take much time – up to eight hours instead of several days, as a regular roof requires. At first, the company will install on its own, but it plans to attract third-party contractors in the future.
A new shingle is already available for order, and installation will begin in a few weeks. It costs $7 per square foot (0.1 square meter). Such a roof for a house will cost on average 34 thousand dollars.
