Tesla to begin taking orders for its solar roof shingles

Lucas Mearian | March 31, 2017
A solar-shingle roof is expected to cost no more than a standard roof.

Because they're made with glass, Musk said the shingles could last "quasi-indefinitely," even in harsh northern regions, with a 50-year lifespan possible.

"The goal is to have solar roofs that look better than a normal roof, generate electricity, last longer, have better insulation and actually have an installed cost that is less than a normal roof plus the cost of electricity," Musk said at the time the shingles were announced.
