Musk said the tiles can be ordered "for nearly any country", including specific confirms for Australia and the UK.
Musk described the roof to reporters as a critical step toward a world that runs on sustainable energy.
Even though the cost of generating solar energy has been reducing every year, according to Nature America, the high price of solar roof panels has been an impediment that has stopped the technology from going mainstream.
The tiles are different from traditional solar panels because they mimic traditional roofing. From most viewing angles, they look just like ordinary shingles, but they allow light to pass through from above onto a standard flat solar cell.
Tesla's Solar Roof project is finally entering the market as the company releases pricing patterns.
Tesla, of course, acquired SolarCity in a deal worth $US2.1 billion in November 2016, shortly after it revealed the solar shingles. Over the next six months, more than 70 stores will be staffed for solar sales.
However, several people had expressed skepticism that the company's product would be affordable.
Musk told reporters the business would "start off initially very slowly but then gather speed and grow exponentially". This stuff is fairly hard to destroy, and can easily deal with the wear and tear of a typical roof.
Tesla will soon begin selling solar roof tiles that are created to look like a traditional roof and have the potential to power a home.
The cost of a Solar Roof can be offset when taking the prolonged reduction of electricity bills into account.
The company offers a warranty for "infinity, or the lifetime of your house, whichever comes first". "A 30 percent premium could well be acceptable". Tesla says that installation will take about five to seven days, entirely managed by the company itself. Using specially designedtempered glass tiles Tesla have developed a way to camouflage the solar tiles so that they're hidden among non-solar tiles. That's a big advantage of Tesla's vertical integration: if you're cashed up enough, you could own an electric vehicle and charge it from your electric roof, with the excess siphoned off into your battery energy storage to power the rest of your house.
Tesla will manage the entire process of solar roof installation, including removal of existing roofs, design, permits, installation and maintenance.
