The biggest problem with Solar Currently
As a homeowner, more and more often I was approached by solar installers interested in helping me save money. Sure the benefits of solar in terms of saving money is great, but do I really want install those ugly blue panels on my beautiful new roof? Hence, 7 years later I am still without solar panels.
Working for a company like ours, We helped plenty of homeowners upgrade their roofs to solar roof tops and did not really mind the blue panels. Many homeowners actually enjoyed the added design it provided to their own roofs. High end luxury homes in Southern California, Hollywood, and Calabasas community held back and recently got excited about Solar City/ Tesla new Solar Tile Shingles that will be coming out 2017.
Why Solar Tile Shingles would Solve the Problem
Tesla and Solar City combined have revolutionized the solar industry once again with their new solar glass tiles. Elon Musk in an interview mentioned that the solar tile shingles would cost less than traditional shingle roofs while providing solar energy for homeowners. That means that you can replace your roof today and get a solar panels with new roof at the same cost. That is a huge savings in comparison to traditional shingles and then solar panels on top of the shingle roof.
It comes in 4 different solar tile flavors to choose from and I would assume that hes working on bringing more choices to the market.
