Four solar tiles will tie tightly into Tesla’s manufacturing and sales of household and commercial battery systems
Tesla has announced four different solar roof tiles that the company plans to tie tightly into its manufacturing and sales of household and commercial battery systems, that will be able to store the energy while at the time making it available to charge Tesla electric cars.
Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk held a press conference Friday to announce the new rooftop solar tiles at Universal Studios Hollywood’s old “Desperate Housewives” set, where the houses surrounding him all had recently had the new solar tiles installed on their roofs.
“Electric cars originally didn’t look good. They had low range; they didn’t have good performance; they were like a golf cart. So people had a real hard time buying electric cars,” Musk said. “Something similar has to happen to solar. We need to make solar panels as appealing as electric cars have become.”
