Everything you need to know about version 3 of Tesla’s new Solar Glass Roof Tiles

Last Friday - October 25 - Tesla presented the third version of its solar roof. Kyle Field did this nice write-up about it, here are my highlights:

  • The price of the Solar Glass Roof is less than a new roof plus solar panels. It doesn’t make sense to get it if you don’t need a new roof but if you do, consider this option
  • With this version, Tesla has dramatically reduced the number of parts and sub-assemblies by more than half
  • Power output and weatherization are covered for 25 years
  • Tesla has two teams competing with each other trying to find the best possible way of installing it. Elon was saying that Tesla is targeting to lower the installation time to eight hours, imagine leaving in the morning and coming back from work to a brand new Solar Glass Roof
