Elon Musk has once again made another big announcement upon the acquisition of a company. He stated that he believed that the Tesla Solar Roof will cost less than a regular roof.
Musk told the crowd that he had just returned from a meeting with his new solar engineering team. Tesla's new solar roof product, he proclaimed, will actually cost less to manufacture and install than a traditional roof--even before savings from the power bill. "Electricity," Musk said, "is just a bonus."
This could prove to be revolutionary news for the solar power industry. If what Musk claimed is true, they will not be many reasons for anyone to adopt the traditional roof over a solar power one given that it saves power and is cheaper.
