Tesla’s Discreet Solar Roof Can Power Your Home And Charge Your Car

While their cars get all of the spotlight, Tesla has been quietly working to improve their discreet Solar Roof system. Now in its third generation, it’s more efficient and long-lasting than ever before — and it’s ready for implementation on your home.

As you can see, these solar power panels are designed to look like traditional roof tiles — very much unlike the unsightly hulking traditional attachments. And while their appearance is a definite plus, the bigger benefit comes in their capability. You see, these panels are made extra-durable and can last up to three times longer than traditional panels. They can also be used to augment traditional power sources or can be combined with Tesla’s Powerwall batteries to create a self-sustaining system — meaning your home can be completely off-the-grid if necessary and you can even repurpose the power taken from the sun and use it to charge your electric car. Pricing starts at $33,950.

Purchase: $33,950+
