By Marissa Higgins

Fantastic news for folks interested in eco-friendly and affordable home renovations: Tesla confirmed that their new solar roof tiles will be available for purchase as early as next month! Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the update on Friday, March 24, and we’re pretty excited already.

Basically, the goal behind these solar tiles is to have your home look like normal, but you’ll actually have a lot more control over your energy needs. It’s also likely that these solar tiles will increase the value of your home and save you money on your power bill over time. Plus, given that their purpose is to turn sunlight into electricity, they’re fantastic for the environment!

Curious about how Tesla's solar tile designs would impact your home’s aesthetic? As of right now, there are four solar tile designs for you to choose from, each one of which is intended to mimic the four traditional types of roofing material. These designs include: Tuscan Glass Tile, Slate Glass Tile, Textured Glass Tile, and Smooth Glass Tile.
