Tesla Solar Roofing Explained

Tesla Solar Roof

Tesla has been at the forefront of the automotive industry for years, but did you know they are taking on another frontier? Roofing! In this blog we’ll discuss Tesla’s latest venture, the Tesla Solar roof.

What is a Tesla Roof?

The Tesla Roof, officially known as the Tesla Solar Roof, is a roofing system that combines traditional roofing materials with integrated solar panels. Essentially, it’s a roof that harnesses the power of the sun to generate electricity for your home while providing the essential function of shelter and protection from the elements. What sets the Tesla Roof apart is its seamless integration of solar technology into the roofing material itself.


How Does the Tesla Roof Work?

The Tesla Roof is not a mere addition of solar panels to an existing roof; instead, it replaces your conventional roof with a solar-powered one. Here’s how it works:

Solar Tiles

The Tesla Roof consists of solar tiles made from tempered glass that resemble traditional roofing materials like shingles or tiles. These solar tiles are equipped with solar cells that capture sunlight and convert it into electricity.

Power Collection

When sunlight hits these solar tiles, they capture the energy and turn it into electricity. This solar energy collected by the Tesla Roof is sent to an inverter, where it is converted from DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current), which is usable in your home.

Power Storage

Excess energy generated during the day can be stored in Tesla’s Powerwall, a home battery system. This stored energy can be used during the night or during power outages when storms arise. 

Powering Your Home

The electricity generated by the Tesla Solar Roof can be used to run your home. It can power your lights, appliances, heating, and cooling systems, just like the electricity you get from the grid.

Energy Integration

The electricity generated by the Tesla Roof can power your home’s appliances, lighting, heating, and cooling systems. If you generate more energy than you use, you can even feed it back into the grid and potentially earn credits from your utility company.


Benefits of the Tesla Roof

Clean, Renewable Energy 

The Tesla Roof allows homeowners to harness the sun’s energy, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.

Aesthetic Appeal

Unlike traditional solar panels, which can be bulky and less visually appealing, the Tesla Roof seamlessly blends with the architecture of your home, enhancing its curb appeal.

Energy Savings

By generating your own electricity, you can significantly reduce your energy bills over time.


Tesla’s solar tiles are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Novalis installed Tesla Roof’s are backed by a warranty of 50 years.
