Tesla has just announced the price for its photovoltaic roof tiles and it costs almost 20% less than a normal roof. The company has priced its new and most sought after Solar Roof at just $21.85 per square foot.
Tesla’s Solar Roof tiles are made of glass layered over a photovoltaic substrate, and they serve as a replacement for traditional roofing materials. This ensures they look like the “real thing” from the ground – even though they accomplish much more than a standard roof.
An additional benefit of the Tesla Solar Roof is that it is touted to be stronger than a traditional roof. In areas where thunderstorms and high winds are rampant, a sturdier abode makes all the difference. In fact, the company is even offering an infinite warranty for the tiles.
