Tesla Partners on Solar Panels For Existing Roofs
Last October, Tesla unveiled a line of solar roof tiles for new homes that offered a subtle and sleek option to generate solar energy. Now, Electrek reports, Tesla has released an option for homeowners who want to generate solar energy without replacing their roof.
Tesla’s acquisition of SolarCity seems to be the impetus behind the new panels, whose streamlined aesthetic is made possible “with integrated front skirts and no visible mounting hardware”. That mounting system was developed by Zep Solar, which SolarCity bought out prior to the Tesla merger.
The new panels are manufactured by Panasonic at Tesla’s Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo, New York. Similar to Tesla’s vehicles and other products, the solar panels are only available directly through the company, which is accepting requests for installation quotes on their website now.
