Tesla is going to launch a new version of its solar roof tiles line up tomorrow October 25, 2019.
During Tesla’s earnings call Tesla CEO, Elon Musk revealed details regarding these third generations solar roof tiles. The differences in the generation were also discussed.
The third-generation solar roof tiles come with improved performance and reduced cost. Musk mentioned these new solar roof tiles would give non-solar roofing tiles a run for their money compared with overtime savings on electricity cost.
It looks like the solar roof tiles were effectively in a testing mode before it was ready for the consumer market. Tesla has not come up with a solid timeline yet for the installation of the tiles. Installations on a large scale have not been seen but maybe with this latest batch, Tesla is finally ready.
We will need to wait until the official launch to be sure but this does leave all sorts of questions pertaining to how Tesla plans to grow its solar panel business. However, Tesla despite much of the negativity covered in many other outlets continues to shine above the rest of its competition by being years ahead in technology. If any company is equipped to help increase the adoption of solar-powered buildings it would be them.
