Last week Tesla and Solar City announced a break through in affordable, attractive solar panels for the home.
They are offering new glass tiles that look similar to regular roof tiles. Each indiviual tile contains a solar panel. While one tile may only cover a small area, in effect the entire roof can be a solar field.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, says that the roof tiles are as affordable and good looking as normal house tiles.
Could we be seeing these solar tiles installed on UK in the near future?
