Tesla Solar Roof FAQs

How long is the wait for Tesla Solar Roofs?

Our wait times to begin installing Tesla Solar Roofs are 2-3 months, depending on the project. Smaller, simpler projects may begin more quickly, while larger, more complex projects may take longer to begin. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible so we can schedule your project and get to work!

Can a Tesla Roof power a house?

Tesla Solar Roof can easily power most homes. A&A Quality Roofing will consider several factors to make sure that your solar roof can provide adequate power to your home. Many of those factors include:

Kilowatt Production

We’ll make sure that your solar roof is capable of the kilowatt production (or electricity generation) your home needs. For large homes that have several power hungry appliances, like hot tubs and large HVAC systems, your kilowatt needs will be larger. Smaller homes with fewer appliances will need less kilowatt production.

A&A Quality Roofing will perform an energy audit during the design phase of your Solar Roof, so we’ll know exactly how much kilowatt production your home will need.

Roof Design

Not all roofs are capable of the same solar capture. Complicated roofs may need more photovoltaic tiles capable of solar capture compared to simple, flat roofs. Our design experts will make sure we know how many photovoltaic tiles are needed, and even if your roof design works with Solar Roof.

Energy Independence

Many of our solar product customers want to be as independent from the electric grid as possible. While not all municipalities allow for true independence, we’ll make sure you maximize your solar capture and energy production.

Our design experts may recommend Powerwall, a home battery, to store excess electric production for when solar capture is low, like at night.

Does Tesla Solar Roof increase home value?

Solar products in general, including Solar Roof, can increase the value of your home. The reason for that is:

  • Carbon footprint reduction

  • Energy Independence

  • Selling energy to the grid (depending on where you live)

Tesla Solar Roof also offers unique benefits not found with other solar products, like:

  • A sleek, modern aesthetic

  • A premium, durable roof

  • Compatibility with products like Powerwall to aid in energy independence

Getting a Tesla Solar Roof is a great investment into your home. Not only will you get a cutting-edge solar product, you’re also receiving a premium roof.

Can you go off-grid with a Powerwall and Tesla Solar Roof?

It is possible to go off-grid with a Powerwall and a Tesla Solar Roof, but going off-grid requires more than just having these two products. If you want to be completely off-grid, you’ll need to have all of the following:

Sufficient Kilowatt Production (or Solar Capture)

If your roof isn’t capable of capturing enough sunlight for your electric needs, then you won’t be able to go off-grid. A&A Quality Roofing will perform an energy audit of how much energy you currently use. Depending on the layout of your roof, it may not be possible to be completely off-grid, though our technicians will be able to determine this during your free consultation.

Living in a Municipality or Having a Utility That Allows You to Be Off-Grid

Unfortunately, even if you have the hardware and kilowatt production required to be off-grid, sometimes it’s simply not allowed. Local municipalities and utility companies often require you to be connected to the energy grid. Some will even cap how many kilowatts your roof is allowed to produce.

If you aren’t sure whether you’re allowed to go off-grid, our Certified Installers will let you know about energy regulations specific to your location and electric utility.

Do I get a tax credit with Tesla Solar Roof?

In 2022, your Tesla Solar Roof will be eligible for a tax credit equal to 26% of the total cost of the project. This includes the material costs and the installation costs. We guarantee we’ll get you the best tax credit available for your solar project.

How much energy can Tesla Solar Roof generate?

A Tesla Solar Roof can generate an enormous range of energy, starting from very low production for small homes to large production for larger homes or businesses. The lowest kilowatt roof we have installed was a 4KW roof, while the highest we have installed is a 51KW roof. Those aren’t lower and upper limits, it’s just the range of what our customers have needed!

How much kilowatts your Solar Roof can produce is largely based on the photovoltaic tiles (or PV tiles) used to build your roof. Each tile produces 72W of energy, but your roof will also have basic tempered glass tiles that can’t produce energy. Our Solar Roof experts will determine how many PV tiles are needed to satisfy your energy needs.

Remember, sometimes local regulations will limit how many kilowatts your roof can produce, so it’s possible you won’t have enough PV tiles to meet all of your energy needs and truly go “off-grid.” We’ll let you know about the specific regulations in your area and how much kilowatts your roof will be allowed to produce.

Does Tesla Solar price include installation?

When you receive a price quote from us, it will include both materials and installation costs. You won’t need to worry about surprise fees or expenses. Remember, the 26% tax credit you’ll receive on your Solar Roof includes material and installation costs.

How long does it take to install a Tesla Solar Roof?

Once we begin installation, you can expect an average installation time of about a week to complete the project. This is a rough estimate, and there are a lot of factors that can impact your timeframe. When we give you a project quote, we’ll also give you a more accurate estimate of how long the project will take. Here are some factors that can impact installation times:

  • The size of your roof. Larger roofs take more time.

  • The design of your roof. Steep and/or complex roof designs will take longer to install.

  • Required permits. The more permits that are required to be able to begin construction, the longer the overall install time will take.

  • Weather. Severe weather (like ice, snow, and thunderstorms) will delay installation times.

Finally, the local utility may delay when you can begin using your Solar Roof. Even after installation is complete, the utility will need to take action to formally connect it to the grid, when required. We’ll give you a rough estimate of how long it will take, depending on your location.

What is the difference between Solar Roof and traditional solar panels?

Traditional solar panels are fixtures that are installed on your roof. Their kilowatt production is comparable to Solar Roof, and sometimes they are a better choice for roofs that have a design that just doesn’t work for the PV tiles used in
Solar Roof installations. Like Solar Roof, traditional panels reduce your carbon footprint and are a step towards energy independence.

Solar Roof, on the other hand, is the roof. The PV tiles and non-functional tempered glass tiles replace the shingles used in traditional roofs. They are extremely durable, and also create a sleek aesthetic that makes your roof look amazing. Solar Roof is also designed to easily work with products like Powerwall, a Tesla-branded battery that stores excess electricity.

Our solar product experts will help you to determine which solar product is right for your home or for your energy needs.

How much electricity can this produce?

Solar energy systems are rated based on kilowatts (kW) of DC power and a Solar Roof system could be designed at almost any level, but generally we see 8-15 kW as a typical range. We have projects planned that will be as high as 50kW. Actual annual production of kilowatt hours (kWh) AC power is dependent on other variables that are carefully evaluated during the design process, such as roof slope orientation, expected hours of sunlight, and shading. Our early experience from the design process suggests that most homes in our markets that are otherwise a good design fit can support enough production to replace 80%+ of a home’s annual electrical consumption.

Are there Tax Credits available for Solar Roof or Powerwall?

Yes! For tax year 2022 there is a 26% Investment Tax Credit available that applies to a large portion of a Solar Roof installation and all of a Powerwall installation when done as part of a solar project. Some states and utilities have other credits available, and we usually can inform you if there are additional incentives in your area.

How much does the Solar Roof cost?

Pricing is still evolving but our general guidance is that a new Solar Roof is likely to cost between $1500-2000 square before incentives. This figure is highly dependent on the size of the photovoltaic (PV) system chosen (the number of “active” PV tiles compared to glass tiles) and the complexity of the roof design and number of obstructions (skylights, chimneys, pipes) on the roof deck. We are optimistic about developing expertise and methods of installing this more efficiently over time to hopefully bring this price down in the future. We have an online configuration tool to help you estimate the price of your project.

A single Powerwall battery storage system installation runs between $11,000 – 13,000 depending on whether other electrical upgrades are necessary. Additional Powerwall units can be added for around $9,000 to increase storage and backup capacity.

Can I finance my Tesla Solar Roof?

Yes! We are pleased to offer a financing program through Sunlight Financial that is designed exclusively for Tesla Solar Roof and Powerwall. The program offers 10 or 20 year fixed rate loans with no prepayment penalty and a one-time optional re-amortization that allows homeowners to apply tax refunds from the Investment Tax Credit to reduce monthly payments for the remainder of the loan. In some cases, our clients have found it even more the current interest rate and property value environment has made refinancing an attractive option for some clients.

What types of roofs are a good fit for the Tesla Solar Roof system?

The system is designed to be installed on nearly any common sloped roof design in the market today. The system has the best value and most competitive installed pricing when a roof has a few large rectangular slopes with good south-facing exposures. We find that roofs with an excessive amount of hips and valleys or with a large number of dormers or a large proportion of small slopes are extremely labor-intensive leading to an unusually high installation cost.

What happens if a tile breaks or is damaged on my Solar Roof?

Don’t worry! Solar Roof is easy to repair in almost every situation. One of the advantages of working with a local/regional company like A&A Quality Roofing is that we have a service department that can respond quickly in all of our markets and we have an inventory of spare parts on hand. We use specialized hand tools that allow us to easily remove individual tiles to service cabling or components underneath or to snap in replacement tiles if needed.
