Introducing Elon Musk’s New Solar Power Roof
In 2016, Elon Musk presented a new product that may someday change the way we power our homes — it’s called Solar Roof.
Solar Roof is the brainchild of the Tesla-owned company, SolarCity. Unlike traditional solar panels, which are bulky and attach to your current roof, Solar Roof is designed to look like traditional roofing shingles.
Partnered with a battery pack called the Tesla Power Wall, homes can use power generated from the sun at night.
Solar Roof became available for pre-order on May 10. After a $1,000 deposit, Solar Roof will cost homeowners around $21.85 per square foot.
