Tesla will begin delivering its first solar roof tiles this summer at a price point that could expand the U.S. solar market. Bloomberg's Tom Randall explains how the tiles work, how they're priced and why Elon Musk sees them as part of a solar-powered trifecta.

If this lasts as long as a normal roof then it is a viable alternative. That's the key selling point that would convince people.

Because not everybody can afford a roof plus the cost of electricity all upfront! I can’t afford $50,000 upfront. But I can afford 25,000+ electricity over 20 years!

Mines would cost 645k. 55,000sq feet is the my white house’s square footage. Well it’s cheap considering tax payers will pay for all of it.

It is not cheaper and more environmentally friendly than a high quality tile, zinc or slate roof which can last more than a century or even a few centuries.

I want that, coupled with battery big enough to power a house for 72 hours.

The cost is unrealistic at around $50,000 per roof. Grossly overpriced just like the Tesla cars.
Cheefus Smith (6 месяцев назад)
According to the 2015 US Census over 85% of American households have a washing machine so I don't know how you define "vast numbers of people" but even if they don't own one, so what? I said even some of the poorest people in the US have one and that is absolutely true. More importantly, the vast majority of Americans have access to a washing machine. Laundromats exist in every city because of space, not access or poverty. If you're living in Manhattan and being asked to pay $2k/sqft you might elect to avoid a 30"x30" washing machine too. My point was when the technology first appeared, it cost a fortune. Only the richest of the rich could afford them. Eventually through supply and demand, consumer-friendly models became available - so from the turn of the century to the mid 1900s HALF of American households had a washing machine. And today - almost all homes either have one or have easy access to one. Same pattern with cell phones. Same pattern with computers. And if Tesla, or the technology they use, is to survive - it will be the same pattern with them. Regarding your second point, how am I "playing the strawman game"? You said these roofs are "grossly overpriced just like the tesla cars" and I am pointing out that new technology is often expensive. In order to grow as a company they will have to play a larger part of the market, which means prices will have to come down. We see that with their latest model. We see that in his speech here. Obviously very few people are going to pay $50k for a roof - but some will. The only over-priced item is the one that doesn't sell. They will make money off the rich first, but if they really want to explode they'll need to figure out a way how to make money off of the rest of us.
Tarzan (6 месяцев назад)
Cheefus Smith You live in a bubble. Vast numbers of people in the US don't own a washing machine, that's why laundromats exist in every city. As for the solar roof, no one said that 100 years from now they won't be feasible. Stop playing the strawman game.
Cheefus Smith (6 месяцев назад)
triple constraint - price, quality speed. you can have 2 of the 3. early adopters pay - that's always the way it is and the way it should be. there were people sitting around crying that the washing-machine cost too much, while scrubbing their clothes in a river. eventually the market opened up and now even some of the poorest people in the US have one. same goes for the cell phone. medicine. televisions. cars. literally everything. you want to be the first guy to have the fancy new technology? well, you're going to pay. or you can wait, and benefit from that guy's willingness to spend and drive up demand.

Why has nobody tried to bundle wind and solar power together for individual housing? All renewable power sources are inferior to non-renewable sources in every aspect except pollution, but solar is probably the worst because of how unreliable it can be. Solar might generate more power, but Wind might be more reliable and cheaper. If someone were to actually use both for their home, then it wouldn't be necessary to blanket your entire freaking roof with solar cells.
Iridium (4 месяца назад)
The choice of site has a limitation of wind velocity. The site needs to be windy enough.The problem is that the wind does not blow all the time. When the wind is not blowing, wind turbines do not generate power. At times of peak electricity demand winds tend to be lighter than average Other problems are Aesthetics, birds and significant amount of bats being killed, noise produced by rotor blades , interference with television reception, etc When considering these problems, solar power is more reliable. This doesn't mean that they aren't being used, actually They are the fastest growing form of utility scale generation in the world, growing even in developed countries where electrical demand is flat as governments seek to decarbonize grids. Wind turbines provided over 30% of the total electrical demand in Denmark, over 20% in Spain, over 4% in the USA, and varying numbers between around the world. That's up from pretty much nothing 20 years ago. But I get where you're coming from.

Honestly, a cheaper (and actually, more eco-friendly) solution would be to get a tiny car that has great MPG.

Where are the important numbers? Like the amount of energy to produce the tiles vs the years it will last? Legit question This just felt like a commercial. Still nice though, but I like to hear both sides of the story.

What he is saying is realistic if tesla merges into another company or something else; however in cases like those the new company is suppose to honor previous agreements and often times when it doesnt a lawsuit is filed and the government enforces it.If tesla completely shuts down or goes bankrupt though, then atleast you still have a roof i guess .-.
Fre Yourmind (1 месяц назад)
+S Tho The unbelievers have doubted Tesla since it has gone IPO. YOU wished you were a believer and got some of Tesla stocks when it came out. 2010, it was $17 per share. As of now, at the end of 2018, $376 per share. Go burn your coal and drive your inefficient gas burning car. You can inhale the carbon monoxide that you love so much from your car while you are at it.

How can something yet to exist be "cheaper" (ENG Prof taught better word for business: "more economical") than expected? I had Solar City come out and they said these shingles don't exist, tried to sell me ugly panels to put on my beautiful house for a mere few bucks less a month than I currently pay for electric - added up the "20 YEAR! lease agreement" and it came to 60k for about 8k worth of materials that can be installed in a couple days- NO THANKS!
Alex Shuysky (8 месяцев назад)
Well, I mean if Tesla put high price on it people wouldn't use it. We need long term solution and it's hard to do with manufacturer want profits only. It's great that Ellon Musk care more about the environment than just the Profit.

Couple issus like how do they compensate for heat and will it blind birds or planes like normal solar power panels. Why not put solar power panel strips on roads for potentially unlimited energy of course there is obvious issues that would need to be fixed but very high potential.

It's interesting, although the environmental argument is moot because of the sheer volume of rare earth minerals the current battery and solar tech require in order to work, and they're short lived, a solar panel loses efficiency to the point that in 30 years time they're basically spent and batteries as anyone who owns a phone or laptop knows has a few years at best and those minerals are spent and unreusable. and these rare earth minerals will run out even at present growth of solar and battery industry usage before oil does.
