Tesla and SolarCity have just unveiled a new series of solar roofs that look almost indistinguishable from traditional ones, and are said to cost the same amount of money.
Join the world’s transition to sustainable energy. Powerwall 2 is a battery for homes and small businesses that stores the sun’s energy and delivers clean, reliable electricity when the sun isn’t shining. Combine Powerwall, solar and an electric vehicle to create a zero emission lifestyle. The sun provides more than enough energy in just one hour to supply our planet’s energy needs for an entire year. Your home can capture this free, abundant energy source through rooftop solar tiles, turning sunlight into electricity for immediate use or storage in a Powerwall battery.
In 2016, Elon Musk presented a new product that may someday change the way we power our homes — it's called Solar Roof. Solar Roof is the brainchild of the Tesla-owned company, SolarCity. Unlike traditional solar panels, which are bulky and attach to your current roof, Solar Roof is designed to look like traditional roofing shingles. Partnered with a battery pack called the Tesla Power Wall, homes can use power generated from the sun at night. Solar Roof became available for pre-order on May 10. After a $1,000 deposit, Solar Roof will cost homeowners around $21.85 per square foot.

Oct. 31 -- Tesla unveiled its first ever solar product at an event at Universal Studios in Los Angeles on October 29, 2016. And it's not a solar panel - it's a range of four solar roofing materials that look almost indistinguishable from high-end terracotta, slate, or asphalt shingles. Bloomberg's Tom Randall explains why Tesla wants a solar-powered trifecta.
Have a look at SANYO Solar's Building integrated photovoltaic system, the HIT Power Roof ®. The HIT Power Roof uses the new MVL² system and can replace any traditional roof. With only 50 mm thickness, it can be integrated onto any kind of roof, with any kind of tile, keeping a completely flat looking surface.

Flexible solar panels can be glued together into larger units and then simply rolled out onto a metal roof prepared with lines of glue. The strips are around 100W so the panels form 400W. Another two panels are prepared so this roof will have a capacity of 1600W, possibly with space for another couple of strips. Space has to be provided for walkways and for leaves to be swept should they fall on top.
