Elon Musk Just Installed Tesla's Solar Roof Onto His Own House

By Brian Spaen

It has been an exciting time for Tesla as highly anticipated products are finally being released. Right on the heels of a handover event involving the first 30 Model 3 vehicles, the first solar roofs have been installed. Similar to how the first Model 3 vehicles were distributed, CEO Elon Musk himself and select Tesla employees have them first. That's right: Elon Musk's home now runs on solar energy, and it looks pretty amazing while doing it.

Less than a year after being announced, the final product is now on display. Musk shared some photos from the installation in Tesla’s quarterly update letter, which shows the new product in multiple angles. Just as he promised, people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the solar roof and traditional roofs when observing the tiles.
