Tesla Releases Prices For New Solar Roof Product

May 11, 2017

The first two styles of Tesla’s solar roof product, "black glass smooth" and "textured" glass tiles, will be priced at about $21.85 per square foot, which is cheaper than what was expected

CNBC reports that Consumer Reports had pegged the tiles at $24.50 per square foot. The tiles need to be priced more favorably than traditional asphalt roofs for Tesla to compete.

Two more styles, a curved red “Tuscan” style and tiles that resemble slate rock, are expected for 2018.

The shingles have three layers — a high-efficiency solar cell, a specially designed film to mask the cell from viewers on the ground, and a top layer of tempered glass. Tesla has said it will sell the roof alongside other products, such as its Powerwall wall battery.
