According to Musk, "integrated solar tiles only make financial sense for new houses or replacement roofs. If your roof is more than 5 years away from replacement, solar retrofit is recommended."

Though only one type of solar tech-equipped shingle is available as of now, the company has plans to offer more styles in the future – possibly every six to nine months – including those that look like clay or other materials.

Based on the estimate pricing outlined on the Tesla website, outfitting a 2,000sq ft (185.8sq m) roof with the Solar Roof tiles will cost approximately US$42,500 (RM177,811) before federal tax incentives, a cost comparable to that of installing traditional shingles. This price, however, is subject to change depending on the complexity of the roof. Installations are set to begin over the next few weeks. – AFP Relaxnews
