Musk 3Technology continues to evolve with every passing day. And so does the solar and renewable industry of energy. Therefore, good news for Tesla is also good news for Elon Musk.

Elon Musk Does it Again

Now, Elon Musk came up with something better. He said the costs for installing solar roofs will cost a lot less than a normal one. This will even happen before adding the electricity savings.

Musk said:

“It’s looking quite promising that a solar roof will actually cost less than a normal roof before you even take in the value of electricity into account.

So the basic proposition would be, ‘Would you like a roof that looks better than a normal roof, lasts twice as long, costs less and by the way generates electricity?’ It’s like, why would you get anything else?”

A few weeks back, Musk revealed the plans Tesla had with solar roofs. According to their statements, four different models are about to be released.

But that’s not all. Musk adds that the glass also contains heating elements capable of melting snow. Furthermore, he mentioned it can still happen while generating electricity.

The release date is set for 2017. It’s going to be a great year seeing how the Model 3 also comes out then.

Striving to make the model available to a larger audience, the car is less expensive than the Model S and X.

The future of Renewable energy looks good.

Based on statistics, Tesla’s financial situation has reached a peak. Not even in half a year, Tesla managed to gain more money than all the U.S. oil companies made last year.

Is Renewable Energy the Future?

Because of the development of renewable energy, oil companies are dying. During last year for example, over $67 billion were lost.

The UK also made an announcement. It appears that solar power helped supply the country with energy more than coal-based systems did.

China, Russia and Japan are planning their own future. The news came out in September.

By creating the Asian Super-Grid which runs on solar and wind energy, they all plan to help power countries and many other places.

Seem like 2017 will be a year full of achievements. Maybe all the renewable energy can bring a change to the Earth.

If what Musk says is true about solar roofs being within a normal price range, then humanity will gain a new face. Let’s hope for the best.
