What is the Tesla Solar Roof?
Tesla roof is a relatively new comer for Australia and It is one of the most cost-effective and innovative solutions of its kind (related to solar panels). The product is made of a number of active and passive tiles having renewables specially built into them. One of the most amazing fact about these tiles is that you wouldn’t know if they are solar panels or otherwise while looking at them from away.
The idea is not to cover your whole roof with these tiles, but rather choose a suitable portion from your roof to place these tiles on them for generating energy.
You would think that this might be generating less energy compared to traditional systems, the answer could be yes but we can compare them all from a more aesthetically pleasing perspective.
When are these tiles available in austalia?
