The Tesla Solar Roof combines the beauty and durability of today's top-tier roofing tiles, with the power generating capabilities of a modern rooftop solar array. Almost completely indistinguishable from a non-energy producing roofing system, the highly durable Tesla Solar Roof will reduce your monthly power bill while dramatically increasing your home's curb appeal.
With a fully integrated design, the Solar Roof delivers exceptional energy production without the aesthetic compromises associated with more traditional solar panel arrays. Energy savings have never looked this good.
Tesla Solar Roof relies on a combination of energy producing and non-energy producing tiles to easily integrate with a wide variety of roof shapes and sizes. Completely indistinguishable from one another, both tile types come together to create an invisible solar array that's aesthetically pleasing at any angle.
Manufactured with tempered glass, Solar Roof tiles are more than three times stronger than standard roofing tiles, and engineered for all-weather durability. With a a 25-year warranty—longer than many traditional roofing systems—the Solar Roof is the ideal for application where long-term performance and aesthetics cannot be compromised.
Reduce electricity costs and replace an aging roof all at the same time. The Solar Roof is the only roofing system that can help pay for itself with the energy you make from your power-generating rooftop. Electrify your home at the lowest price per watt of any national provider and take control of your monthly electricity bills like never before.

Below are some of the most common questions about Tesla Solar Roof. If your question isn't on the list, we invite you to contact us through the form at the bottom on this page.
Solar Roof pricing is the sum of two categories – roofing materials and solar components. In both categories, final pricing is influenced by roof size and complexity. General cost guidance for the roofing side is roughly $10-14 per square foot. On the solar side, pricing is estimated at $3.50 per watt. The more solar tiles in the design, the higher the price.
Tesla estimates the total project price by producing preliminary designs that include both the minimum and maximum density of solar tiles. Customers may choose any achievable amount between those two values.
Efficiency numbers for Solar Roof are not readily available. In a recent analysis, PV Magazine estimated Solar Roof efficiency between 4-11%. Total system production depends on the density of solar tiles to non-solar tiles in the final design.
As a comparison, most modern solar panels operate between 15% to 22% efficiency. Overall production depends on the number of panels installed.
As a new technology, permitting timelines may be extended until the product becomes more prolific. Solar Roof is also new to many building and fire authorities, power utilities, and HOAs. This may slow the approval process in some areas.
Most shingles will last between 25-30 years. Telsa provides a 25-year tile warranty, and we provide a 10-year workmanship warranty. As a new product, it is difficult to predict the production lifetime beyond the warranty period.
