Solar GlassRoof Overview

Tesla Solarglass roof is a beautiful and durable roof that also generates clean energy. Tesla’s energy producing roof tiles are visually indistinguishable from non-energy producing tiles, creating an aesthetically unparalleled solar energy solution. The combination of energy producing and non-energy tiles allows a Solarglass roof to be functionally integrated and customizable to a variety of roof shapes and sizes.

Structural Requirements

Solarglass tiles are mounted on a self-adhering underlayment over bare solid or closely fitted sheathing. The net installed weight of Solarglass modules is less than 4 pounds per square foot. The primary materials of Solarglass tiles are glass, polymers, fiberglass and silicon. Non-PV glass and metallic flashings are used at transitions, edges and penetrations.

Tesla Solarglass components are tested to roofing specific standards including fire, wind and impact resistance. A complete list of certifications is available in the Solarglass Roof Datasheet.

Tesla Solarglass is installed over bare solid or closely fitting sheathing, as follows:

Adheres to all applicable local building and structural codes for sheathing materials, ratings, and thickness requirements.
