TESLA’S LATEST PRODUCT: A SOLAR ROOF
Amid acquisition negotiations with solar panel vendor SolarCity, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the chairman of SolarCity made a joint statement regarding the release of a new product: a solar roof. It is important to note that they are not talking simply about a solar panel attached to the roof. This product would be literally a roof of solar panels. No paneling, no actual roof construction. Just a solar roof. The announcement comes in the wake of Tesla’s $2.6 billion bid for SolarCity, which would make them, according to Musk, an "integrated sustainable energy company".
