See Rare Look At Tesla Solar Roof In The Wild, Plus Exclusive Interview

• https://insideevs.com, BY STEVEN LOVEDAY

It sure is swell (and different) to see the Tesla Solar Roof on a typical home, rather than the stock promo pictures that Tesla previously released. According to Toblerone (@Toblerhaus) on Twitter, this is a ~10 kW system. It should cover all of her family's energy needs, with extra to spare.

She says it took about three weeks to install, which is longer than normal, but this was due to an unreasonable amount of rain. Now, she just has to wait for the local power company to approve its use.

If you read through the comments on Twitter, there are a variety of references to pricing, though they are vastly inconsistent. The bottom line is – as we've reported before – the Tesla Solar Roof is more expensive than the competition, but it's extremely durable and features a lifetime warranty.

Any solar roof will cost significantly more than a standard roof, but you're getting a means for creating your own energy, which, over time, will end up saving you money. You also get a federal tax rebate on the solar portion of the roof, as well as the battery.
