"Most roofs look bad", he said.

With a little month behind, Tesla has just announced that the pre-orders of its famous solar tiles are open. "So when you're on the street, you simply see a stunning roof". Tesla has halted door-to-door sales of solar panels and begun testing solar sales in its auto stores. This is because they are designed like actual tiles, in fact, it's hard to tell them apart.

Tesla will be making two Solar Roof designs available this year.

On Tesla's blog site, the company also compares the square foot costs to other roofing materials such as asphalt or metal. The plunging price of solar in recent years has made it favorable for the wider uptake this form of renewable energy. By incorporating solar modules into rooftops, Tesla is hoping to succeed with a one-of-a-kind solar technology that to date has had little market success. Costs vary depending on roof type. The smooth and textured tiles will be the first to go into production this summer with more to follow. The payment is fully refundable until you enter into an installation agreement with Tesla.

"When you have this installed on your house, you'll have the best roof in the neighborhood".

Users can customise the amount of energy generated through using a mix of solar and non-solar tiles, which look indistinguishable. This whole process should take about a week to get you up and running. However, not like the common roofs, Tesla's solar roof would generate electricity for a specific place using the solar cell embedded in each tile. Tesla's cost of active solar tiles is about $42 per square foot, "significantly below" BNEF's prior estimate of $68 per square foot, Bromley said. Tesla has also assured that the solar panels are more durable than regular roofing tiles and at least three times stronger. And let's assume a little more for those in the United Kingdom because of the great British weather and all that. Inactive tiles will cost $11 per square foot. The cost can be rolled into the homeowner's mortgage payments and paid for over time, the company said. Tesla expects the costs to pay off over 30 years. That's how long the power side of things is covered for.

Adding to the affordability factor Tesla makes the case for, is durability for tiles that are said to be more robust than other shingles. The styles of tiles Tuscan and Slate are not expected before next year.

What is the Tesla Solar Roof release date?

Musk had previously said that orders would begin in April.
