What’s common for all houses that use solar energy as a power supply? They are easy to spot because of the obvious solar panels montaged the most often on the roof. However, The guys from Tesla came up with a smooth solution in a form of new solar roof which looks just like ordinary roof panels one from the street level. Textured glass tiles with integrated solar cells have a special coating which makes tiles transparent when viewed directly, but change appearance depending on the viewing angle. In a word, the roof makes your neighbours say: “Check out this sweet roof,” and that was exactly the idea as Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims.
We got used to hearing about innovations in the car industry when Tesla name is mentioned, but this time they did something different. The Tesla solar panels is a jointly branded venture with SolarCity and as Musk explained:
“Tesla is not just a car company. The real purpose of Tesla is to innovate the future of power. Cars are just part of the solution.”
