What Happened To Tesla’s Solar Roof Tiles? Accelerated Life Testing Difficult, But Product Should Be Scaling in 2018 and 2019

Elon Musk unveiled prototypes of Tesla’s Solar Roof tiles In October 2016. They came in four styles that looked just like normal roofing material but were essentially miniaturized versions of traditional solar panels.

Production of the solar panel “shingles” are expected to scale up in 2018 and 2019, but the cost parity of production/installation and customer cost is not here yet. Miniaturization and durability is an engineering challenge, but Tesla’s goal is to make solar roofs that last 30 years.
