Making the switch to "solar" for your home or business will soon be much more than just a financial decision. By the end of 2017, Elon Musk and the pioneers at Tesla have plans on eliminating the often intrusive and bulky appearance that we've all seen in our neighborhoods.
This game-changing announcement was made on the set of Desperate Housewives in Los Angeles this past Friday. Those in attendance were [pleasantly] stunned once Elon let them know that each home at the "Housewives" set was using the new textured-glass shingles and technology. "No one saw it coming", according to an expansive article from Bloomberg Technology that offers additional details on the deal between Tesla and SolarCity.
According to Bloomberg, if all of Musk's plans come true, by the end of 2017, you'll be able to walk into a Tesla store, buy a Model 3 electric car, a slate-glass solar roof, and a Powerwall 2 to manage the flow of all those electrons in your life. There are a lot of details to be released before we/us consumers will be able to feel that this is a practical reality for the future of roofs.
