Ever since they were first launched in the US I’ve had my eye on Tesla solar tiles. For those of you who haven’t seen them before, they are basically like regular roof tiles, but with integrated solar panels!
Regular-style solar panels (which ain’t pleasing to the eye when on residential roofs) have been around for my entire lifetime. So a new visual design is something that really is amazing.
From what I’ve gathered in the press, the estimated cost will be around £20k for an average roof, so it’s going to take a bit of intense saving to have that to hand. But once installed it would feel amazing to have my roof tiles generate power for the house!
