Tesla has recently begun taking orders for their new solar tiles, which are a game-changer for those looking to invest in alternative home energy. The design itself is innovative, with modular tiles that can cover as much or as little of the roof as desired. And since the tiles look almost exactly like regular tiles, coming in a range of styles, they can easily blend in with non-solar parts of the roof. These tiles are also unbreakable, and will likely outlast the home itself. As to be expected with well-designed, new technology, the tiles are more expensive than regular roof shingles, but the homeowner will save that money over time on electricity. And for those of us who face the cost of an inevitable roof repair every 15 years or so, these infinitely-warranted tiles seem like a good investment.
