Elon Musk, Tesla CEO and tech innovator, announced his plans to make solar power affordable to normal schlubs like me by creating solar-roof panels.
Musk put things into perspective by saying,
“It’s looking quite promising that a solar roof will actually cost less than a normal roof before you even take the value of electricity into account. So the basic proposition would be, ‘Would you like a roof that looks better than a normal roof, lasts twice as long, costs less, and by the way generates electricity?’ It’s like, why would you get anything else?”
There’s no word yet about when we can expect to see the panels, but plans have been announced to produce the panels, being referred to as ‘solar cells’, at a facility in Buffalo.
