Installation Overview


What are the different components that make up a Solar Roof?

Solar Roof is made up of tempered and annealed glass tiles, where some tiles have integrated solar cells and others do not. There are also general roofing materials included such as underlayment and flashing. 

Do you remove my current roof?

Yes, we will remove your existing roof system down to the decking. We will perform any structural or electrical upgrades as agreed in the contract, and install a new turnkey Solar Roof system designed to perform and meet our quality standards.

How is Solar Roof wired?

The active solar cells in your Solar Roof are wired in series, much like traditional solar panels, to achieve the proper inverter operating voltage. 

Does Solar Roof integrate with Powerwall?

Yes, Solar Roof seamlessly integrates with Powerwall.

Do you support the full project from design to Install?

Yes, we will work with you through the entire process from sales, survey, design/engineering, permitting, interconnection, and installation.

When can I start using Solar Roof?

After installation, you can start using Solar Roof when the utility provides Permission to Operate (PTO). PTO requirements vary by region and utility. Your installation team will provide updates as PTO is granted.
