Tesla’s cars are stylish, interesting, fast as hell and making electric vehicles a truly viable option for the future. But it’s the technology behind those vehicles that’s even more impressive. We’re talking about the more mundane pieces like batteries and Tesla Solar Panels. Tesla just unveiled the third iteration of the Tesla Solar Roof, and it’s even more impressive than all their previous solar offerings. Sure, “Solar Roof provides the lowest cost per watt of any national solar panel provider and is comparable in price to a typical roof with solar panels.” according to Tesla–that breaks down to about $7.00 /ft² | $1.99 /watt if you’re curious–but the biggest takeaway isn’t the price, it’s the design. This does not look like a house with solar panels on the roof. This looks like a house with a roof, and that’s exactly what we’ve always wanted because no one wants to look at hideous solar panels. The beauty of Solar Roof is that it replaces your existing roof with stylish, dual-purpose tiles that harness all the energy you need while still being three times stronger than standard roofing tiles.
