February 10, 2020 / Cody DeBos

Although most people associate Tesla with its lineup of electric cars, the Musk-led company is also involved in a few other sectors. Mainly, those revolving around clean energy. It is currently working on a type of solar tile roof, called Solarglass, that replaces traditional shingles and can power the average home. Now, the company is increasing its number of solar tile roof installations in the San Francisco Bay area according to CEO Elon Musk via a series of Tweets. He also notes that the product will eventually be available in Europe and China. Back in October, Tesla introduced the third version of Solarglass. It originally joined the solar roofing business in 2016 following its acquisition of Solar City. Until recently, however, news about the product was sparse.
