Tesla Solar

Tesla Solar is the latest venture from Tesla led by Elon Musk in partnership with Solar City. Tesla Solar is manufacturing solar tiles that can be installed on a roof to generate electricity on the roof top. The glass tiles are available in four different styles to suit individual requirements. They are made to result in superior performance similar to asphalt shingles. The solar film is integrated in to the glass tile so it is not visible to the person from the road. Tesla recommends Powerwall to store and convert the electrical energy generated.

Tesla Roofing is popular among environment friendly property owners. Unlike solar panels, Tesla solar tiles are less bulky and look trendy on the roof top. The tiles are tested for impact resistance, high wind resistance, moisture resistance, and algae resistance. The glass tiles from Tesla can be ordered directly from the manufacturer or from an authorized distributor from Tesla. Solar tiles from Tesla are easier to assemble and require no additional bolting. The tiles interlock to complete the circuit and are connected to an inverter on the property premises.

The ratings and standards of the Tesla solar glass tiles are in par with the roofing industry. The performance of the tiles are expected to surpass the traditional shingles. The glass coating is rated according to the American and European standards. Class A fire resistance, Class F wind resistance, and Class 4 impact resistance are some of the features of the Tesla glass tiles.

Currently, orders are being processed for the smooth and textured glass tiles in the far east and far west states in the US. Future markets may expand to the slate and tuscan tiles and reach through out the country.

Solar Roofing in Iowa City

Solar roofing is the latest trend in the roofing industry. Home owners and businesses install solar panels on the roof tops to generate renewable energy. For solar panel installation, asphalt shingles are most suitable. Wood shake or tile may break due to the weight of the solar panels. However, the solar panels are bulky and reduce the curb appeal of a residential property.

Steep slope roofs are most suitable for solar roofing. The roof facing South, West, or East are apt for solar installations. If a roof is blocked by a tree or other structure, that roof may not be suitable for solar tiles. Unobstructed sun light is a key requirement for solar roofing.

Solar tiles from Tesla can serve two purposes, that is providing protection for the house and producing electricity through the solar cells. The photo voltaic cells in the solar tiles produce direct current which is converted to alternating current by an inverter. The electricity is routed to the appliances and lighting in the house through the circuit panel. The extra power generated from the solar roofs can be given back to the utility grid and thereby your monthly electric bill can be reduced.

During nights and cold weather, the solar circuit is not producing any electricity and your house draws power from the utility grid. All solar installations have additional monitoring equipment that notify the installer about any failures at the property. If in any case, the solar roofing is unable to produce electricity, the house can always be powered by the normal utility provider as a back up. If there is surplus energy generation, that energy can be routed back to the utility grid. The utility company can pay you back check or adjust the meter reading based on your actual energy consumption from the grid.
