When will Smooth, Tuscan and Slate tiles become available?
These tiles are currently scheduled for launch later next year. To receive updates on availability, place an order so you are added to the fulfillment queue. Our team will then follow up with you once these tiles become available.
Where are you producing Solar Roof tiles?
We are manufacturing the tiles at Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo, NY.
What types of glass do you use?
The tiles are made primarily of tempered glass. Tempered glass is more than 3x stronger than a traditional tile roof. The tiles are so durable that the glass in the tile is warrantied for the lifetime of your house, or infinity, whichever comes first.
Does every tile have a solar cell?
No, not every tile has a solar cell. We have two types of glass tiles, a solar tile and a non-solar tile. Both appear the same from the street level. During the design phase, we will determine the right number of solar tiles for you based on your home energy needs.
