Tesla announced that Gigafactory New York achieved Solarglass tile production of 4MW last week, which it claims is enough for 1,000 homes. An impressive new milestone, but can they install those solar roofs? In October of last year, Tesla launched version 3 of its Solar Roof tiles, which they now call Solarglass, and it saw a significant price decrease through optimization and faster installation. We posted a Tesla Solar Roof V3 real quote comparison showing that the price dropped by 40%. CEO Elon Musk wants an acceleration of production and installations for the new version of the solar roof. He said that Tesla was aiming to achieve production of 1,000 Solarglass roofs per week by the end of 2019. A few months late, Tesla announced that it has achieved its goal last week: Tesla is coming up with the production of “1,000 solar roofs” within a week by assuming 4kW of energy production per roof.
