Tesla Solar Roof poised for international rollout, suggests latest patent filing

Tesla is poised to expand its Solar Roof product into international markets. The California-based company has submitted a Solar Roof patent with the European Patent Office. The patent, titled “Packaging for Solar Roof Tiles,” outlines the casing structure of a single solar roof tile from Tesla. Although this patent was already filed in the United States previously, it has not been submitted to the European Patent Office. The patent filing seems to be indicative of CEO Elon Musk’s wishes to hit the international market with Tesla’s Solar Roof later this year. The patent’s description explores the makeup of a solar roof tile module, indicating that the assembly includes “a plurality of solar roof tiles positioned side by side and one or more tile spacers. The tiles are electrically and mechanically coupled to each other.”
