Referral Program

Our goal is to build the best clean energy products and help Tesla owners share their excitement and experiences with others. As an owner, you can earn awards when your friends and family use your referral link to order eligible Tesla products and transition to sustainable energy.

At this time, orders for Solar Roof are eligible for the Referral Program. To earn Referral awards, Solar Roof orders must be placed through your unique referral link. Note that referrals cannot be added after an order is placed, and awards are granted after the Solar Roof system receives permission to operate on the grid from your utility.

Friends and family who order Solar Roof through your referral link can earn $500 upon permission to operate, while also reducing reliance on the grid and producing clean solar energy. You will earn $500 for each Solar Roof referral.

Download the Tesla app to start sharing your referral link and track the status of your awards in the Loot Box.


All Solar Roof referral orders must be placed through an active referral link as the referral cannot be added after the order. Solar Roof Referral awards are granted once the system receives permission to operate on the grid from your utility. The Referral Program and its terms are subject to change or end at any time and without notice.

Note: Orders of vehicle products and solar panels are not eligible.


Must be at least 18 years old to be eligible for benefits and are non-transferable or redeemable for cash. The customer is responsible for all taxes and local requirements and fees. Program and awards are conditional on and subject to local laws and regulations.

Neither the referrer nor the buyer may be a customer-facing employee, legal representative or partner of Tesla or any Affiliate of Tesla. Nothing in the Referral Program shall be deemed to create any kind of relationship between the referrer and Tesla or any of Tesla’s Affiliates. The referrer has no authority to represent or bind Tesla.

Good Faith

We introduce programs such as these in good faith and expect the same good faith in return. Please note that we may withhold awards where we believe customers are acting in bad faith or otherwise acting contrary to the intent of this program. To be clear, commercializing, advertising, publishing, mass distributing, selling or paying for use of referral links is not appropriate, and we will not honor such links. We cannot cover every nefarious scenario, nor will we attempt to, but we do promise to be fair and reasonable.

Not OK:

  • Advertising
  • Spam
  • Anything misleading or annoying
  • Social media bios
  • Paying or offering incentives for use of your link
  • Referral code aggregation, including posting to deal and coupon sites


  • YouTube channels
  • Informational & fan websites
  • Social media sharing
