The crazy part is this is one of those new-fangled Tesla Solarglass roofs, which are unlike traditional solar panels. In fact, they’re the attractive solar roof shingles Tesla promised some time ago but has fallen behind on bringing to market at any reasonable level of production and delivery.
Initially, YouTuber Austin Flack and his wife were looking into plans to get Tesla solar panels installed on their roof until they learned that their roof wasn’t installed correctly and needed to be completely replaced. Sadly, at that time, it seemed Tesla’s Solarglass roof was just vaporware. However, since then, everything worked out in their favor and now they’re the proud owners of a Tesla Solar Roof.
Naysayers will continue to assert that the Tesla solar roof is representative of a Ponzi scheme. However, let’s look back and remember the first several months of Model 3 production and deliveries. Now, compare that situation to the current one. We can only hope that despite delays and struggles, the solar roof is here to stay and will ramp up into the future.
Check out the brief video above for more details.related to timeline, installation, and cost. Fortunately, Flack has plans to provide more detailed coverage of the roof in the near future. In the meantime, share your thoughts with us in our comment section below.

WE GOT A TESLA SOLAR ROOF: First impressions and what you need to know!
THANKS SO MUCH WATCHING! I AM GOING TO POST A Q&A VIDEO IN THE COMING WEEKS ANSWERING SOME OF THE MANY QUESTIONS I’VE RECEIVED. THE SYSTEM WILL ALSO BE UP AND RUNNING BY THEN, SO I WILL BE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE HOW IT WORKS AND REPORT BACK ON THE kW LEVELS WE ARE GENERATING.
In-depth review of the new Tesla Solarglass / Solar Roof V3, including a price comparison to a conventional roof + Tesla solar panels, a summary of the installation process, and an evaluation of the final product. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have—just leave them in the comment section below.
For those interested, we placed our order in early November and were scheduled for installation in mid-December, but rainy weather pushed installation into January. Unfortunately, the federal rebate fell from 30% in 2019 to 26% in 2020, but Telsa was kind enough to give us a 4% discount to make up the difference.
