Solar Roof

 

 

Sunlight is energy and it is for free!

Good news for those who have been eyeing Tesla’s new Solar Roof – the company just announced pricing for its photovoltaic tiles, and they come in at just $21.85 per square foot. That, they claim is nearly 20 percent cheaper than a normal roof once you factor in the energy savings and tax credits.  Well, almost there – do it without tax credits and then we are there but OK for tax credits to get started.

At least, someone has finally grasped that making a conventional tiled roof, and then retro-fitting solar panels is little short of insane suicide.  We have the technology to make a roof out of solar panels and we should never, from this day on, ever make another conventional roof.
