  • Tesla Solar Roof Will Last for 30 Years

Tesla’s solar roof may actually aid in the global transition to a sustainable future.

Tesla wants to lead the world towards a secure future of green energy rather than a dystopian one where the only thing that reigns is chaos.
According to Tesla, its products are so high class that they can beat the competition hands down.

Solar energy has always been in the cards for Tesla. Therefore a solar roof has been made that is economical, sturdy, aesthetic and has battery storage space within it.

Sunlight is turned to energy via this solar roof. A home is thus made self-sufficient. A solar roof can employ two types of tiles: solar and non-solar.

Tesla has allowed the customer to decide what percentage of each he wants his roof to be composed of. That is because at Tesla, the staff and administration believe in a policy of transparency.

As reported earlier, Tesla had already started taking pre-orders of its solar roof tiles in the US.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, tweeted that it was a “slo-mo hail cannonball impacting Tesla roof tile” that his company showed in comparison to other tiles of varying durability. Whereas the other two tiles were completely shattered, the Tesla tile remained pretty much intact.

Not all the tiles on the roof will be solar tiles though. According to Electrek, the percentage that will be solar tiles will depend upon the total energy requirement of the household. A Powerwall will exist in this setup somewhere.

These solar roof tiles are made with tempered glass. They happen to possess three times the strength of ordinary tiles. Therefore the company guarantees that the tiles will last a lifetime or even the unbelievable period of infinity on the line of timelessness.

You will need to deposit a grand in US dollars to get the entire system for your house. According to Bloomberg, such affordable and durable roofs will be a common sight in future times. The biggest plus point of these solar roof tiles is the fact that they come with an infinite warranty.

According to BusinessInsider, Tesla has started taking the requisite cash for orders of its solar roof tiles. The minimum time span these tiles will last is 30 years. Yet the fact of the matter is that they are very durable indeed.

The infinite tile warranty is not just a wishy-washy statement. It has an iron-clad guarantee behind it. As the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk put it so well, “it’s infinity or when your house falls down”.

The tiles are available in Smooth and Textured styles for now. They will later on also be available in Tuscan and Slate designs. Installation of these tiles will begin within the US this summer and outside the US in the year 2018.
