Tesla Launches Sales of ‘Invisible’ Solar Roof
American technology company Tesla has launched sales of its new solar roof.
The roof is made of glass tiles that can collect energy from the sun. The tiles were designed to make the roof look similar to those on traditional homes.
Some of the tiles have solar cells inside that take energy from the sun and turn it into electricity. All the tiles look the same and the solar cells are invisible from the street.
Tesla founder Elon Musk says his goal was to create a solar roof that looks better, costs less and lasts longer than non-solar roofs.
The tiles are three times stronger than non-solar tiles, and weigh half as much, according to Tesla. The company is guaranteeing the tiles for the whole lifetime of a home.
The company estimates the cost of installing a solar roof on a 240-square-meter home would be about $69,000. Some industry experts have noted this estimate is much higher than for a roof made from traditional materials.
But Tesla says a solar roof will actually cost less over time because it can reduce or get rid of electricity payments. The government also reduces taxes for some people using solar technology.
Tesla sells batteries to store the solar energy that powers homes. The battery is called a Powerwall, which is included in the price of the roof installation. The Powerwall stores energy that can be used at any time of day or night, the company says.
Tesla also makes electric automobiles that can be charged with solar power. Elon Musk says both products can be used to help conserve the planet's energy supply.
"When you think of a sustainable energy future, you want roofs to be beautiful and generate energy from the sun," he said. "That energy can then charge Powerwalls and electric vehicles - that's the future we want."
People interested in buying a solar roof can go online and estimate the cost by entering information about their home. A $1,000 deposit is required to place an order. Two designs are currently available and more will be added in the future.
Roof installations are set to begin in the United States next month and will start in other countries next year.
Musk said he is not sure how many people will order the solar roof tiles and admitted there could be some difficulties along the way. But he added that Tesla is committed to the project, which he described as "the only sensible vision for the future."

特斯拉推出“隐形”太阳能屋顶
近日,美国科技公司特斯拉(Tesla)新推出的太阳能屋顶开始销售%e5;%LYfKrv
太阳能屋顶由能够吸收太阳能的玻璃瓦片制成uSZu0,(9pDcsQ。这种瓦片的外形与传统的房屋瓦片类似wZM2vFN_QS5Th
部分玻璃瓦片内装有太阳能电池,能够吸收太阳能并转换为电力Hj]s#rW3)ahpL=t。所有玻璃瓦的外形统一,远观是看不到太阳能电池的3REEzZm8IR(vthLAn24!
特斯拉的创始人埃隆·马斯克(Elon Musk)称,他的目标是打造一款外形美观、价格低廉,比非太阳能屋顶更耐用的太阳能屋顶G=M+A+5ES0_x

特斯拉方面称,太阳能瓦片的硬度是非太阳能瓦片的三倍,重量却只有非太阳能瓦片的一半kfUlVrPNxvj)4!d_sh2。该公司正在努力让玻璃瓦片的寿命与房屋的寿命持衡ccfzRGX_]5
据特斯拉公司估算,为240平方米的房屋安装太阳能屋顶的费用是6.9万美元7V_CDe3UN|#EEqD。一些产业专家已经指出,这远远高于安装传统屋顶材料的价格@xb4+Kjumb&h9
不过特斯拉方面表示,随着时间推移,太阳能屋顶可以节省能源开支,其费用也会逐渐减少Q*;;NdETynekUh7U4。政府也将降低使用太阳能技术的公民税收h*.lp,!+#a,f#2pV
特斯拉还出售可为房屋供电的太阳能存储电池daAH~a@C51~!|nWvn63H。该电池名为“能量墙”(Powerwall),电池的费用包含在屋顶的安装费用内88Ev[dZ;bc|Cjl.De。特斯拉表示,“能量墙”储存的太阳能可在昼夜任何时候使用ocQ@)zEbczL_4
特斯拉还研发了利用太阳能充电的电动汽车--GXt_%aK5!5O*x。马斯克表示,这两种产品有助于节约地球能源3(cvri(.p03;R!D
他说,“说到可持续能源的未来,大家会想要既漂亮还能吸收太阳能的屋顶”zlT.bF5PE3Vd&YE&G6d。“这种能量还能为“能量墙”和电动汽车充电——这就是我们想要的未来#lr2&RgRr#POdRy5。”
