Elon Musk’s Solar Powered Roofing in North Wales?
The automotive company and brainchild of ‘business magnet’ Elon musk has produced the best looking solar panels ever created. Just take a look at these – they look completely real.
Is roofing North Wales going to have a revolution pretty soon?
The idea is that ugly looking solar panels strapped to the roof are not only a bit hard on the eye, but also not the most efficient. What if the tiles of your house themselves had in-build solar cells? That way the whole top portion of your house would be covered in solar panels! Your entire roof would BE a solar panel!
This is created with tesla solar glass!
Solar roof integrates with the Powerwall home battery which allows you to have a reliably charged power source allowing you to power your entire house – in the event of a power outage you would comfortably be protected from any inconvenience that your neighbours may suffer.
With the UN’s recent damning report of the world’s climate change disaster, we need to be al pitching together and making every little change possible in order to prevent catastrophe, and it may just be innovations like this which set us on the righteous path.
Now Elon’s roofing might not be affordable for the vast majority of us right now, but some years down the line – who knows? It could be common place to have personal solar powered roofing system which power’s your house.
Some of these tiles are even designed to look like slate.
These tiles come with an ‘infinity warranty’ which mean that they are guaranteed to last the entire lifetime of your house (or infinity – whichever comes first).
These tiles are even designed to withstand the blast of hailstones much more than traditional roof tiles, an exciting animation shows a 5cm hailstone blasting towards a set of traditional towers, which are subsequently shattered into pieces, the Tesla solar glass on the other-hand doesn’t even budge, the material holding firm against the onslaught.
Tesla are able to provide this roofing to a number of different countries, and personally oversee the removal, replacement and reconfiguration of the roofless, as well as setting it up seamlessly with the in-house batteries.
Elon musk recently mentioned that he had this very same tiling system on his own home!
A ‘solar roof’ surely this is for the future? Nope it’s for the present!
We now have several hundred homes with the Solar Roof on them, and that’s going well. It takes a while to just confirm that the Solar Roof is going to last for 30 years and all the details work out,” Musk said on Tesla’s Q2 earnings call in August.
For those of us who just want a reliably built roofing north wales, with locally sourced welsh slate or other finely made materials you can always go to a traditional roofing company until the time is right where this kind of technology is commonplace.
