Solar Roof Installation Process


Place a $1000 deposit to get started. This will be applied to the purchase price of your Solar Roof.

Phone Call

A Tesla product specialist will contact you once Solar Roof is available in your region to discuss your home energy needs.

Home Energy Assessment

We will schedule a site visit to advise you on the most optimal Solar Roof design for your home.

Review Your Installation

We will send you your agreement, which includes your final hardware.

Schedule Your Installation

After you approve your agreement, a specialist will contact you to determine the best time to install your Solar Roof.


Installation time is dependent on the size and complexity of your roof, but most installations take approximately two weeks to complete. After installation, you can start using Solar Roof when the utility provides Permission to Operate (PTO). PTO requirements vary by region and utility. 

Download the app

Once the system has received PTO, you can download the Tesla app to monitor your solar production and home energy use.

Ongoing Support

Solar Roof has a 30-year solar module and weatherization warranty and an infinite glass warranty. We are here to support you with any questions during that time.
