Get your credit card ready, because Elon Musk announced that Tesla’s Solar Roof tiles are available to order, – and the Tesla Solar Roof order page just went live. The innovative roof tiles look like traditional slate, Tuscan or shingle roofing, but they collect sun to power your home with clean, renewable solar. Musk said that the smooth black and textured version of the tiles are available for order, with other styles following next year.
Musk made the announcement, as he so often does, on Twitter, stating that installation will start this year in the US. He added that Tuscan and French Slate will be available in 6 months. Orders and installation overseas won’t be available until next year.
Tesla solar glass roof orders open this afternoon. I think it will be great. More in about 10 hours …

The Solar Roof can be paired with Tesla’s Powerwall battery to power a home entirely on sustainable energy. According to Musk, each tile is unique and looks like a traditional roof tile from the street.
