Elon Musk has recently confirmed the availability of Tesla Solarglass roof tiles on Twitter. Finally, they will also look to Europe and China, but the exact date is yet to be announced in the same way as the specific availability in each market.
Tesle has recently been able to streamline production and come up with a business model that can be profitable. Recently, the company boasted that installing Solar Roof is cheaper than installing conventional roofing and then conventional solar panels. The product is very popular in the US and Tesla recruits many new employees.
Europe & China timing will be announced soon— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 10, 2020
Gradually it looks at other markets, we will finally see in our country in Europe. But the exact date is not clear yet – Musk has only said on Twitter that this will happen soon.
Snow melts on them
Here also in response to tweet of the fan said that we may see a functional extension. Already, most solar tiles produce residual heat, which helps to melt the snow. However, this is not enough during heavy snowstorms, so Musk mentioned the possibility that a heating system would be installed with the tiles to help with the problem. This makes snow easy to melt to increase tile efficiency. Whether or not we will actually see something like this is yet in the stars. But Tesla patented a similar system.
I think will still be better than a normal roof, but adding a heating grid to automatically remove ice & snow sounds like a good option. We have that already on car windows!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 10, 2020
The new roof design will cost around $42,500 for a 2,000-square-foot roof with 10kW of solar capacity before tax credits (or about $21.25 per square foot), according to Tesla’s website, though pricing will vary by size and location. The new roof will come with a 25-year warranty,
