– Last year, when I looked at the Tesla Solar Roof, I determined that it was still not worth it in terms of a financial investment compared to just adding solar panels to my existing roof, or getting a new roof and then adding panels to it.
since then, Tesla released Version Three, and has dropped the price by thousands of dollars.
So, I thought we could just have another look and see whether or not it makes financial sense to buy and install a brand new Tesla Solar Roof. Let’s free the data.
If you’ve been following the channel for a while, you’ll know that this is my third Tesla Solar Roof video, with the first one uploaded all the way back in 2016.
Back then, Elon made some big claims, saying it would look better than a normal roof and generate electricity, last longer, and more. But then, we waited and nothing seemed to happen.
That was until March of 2019 when Elon told us 2019 would be the year of the Solar Roof.
alas, the Model 3 production ended up taking almost all of Tesla’s focus, and everything just seemed to stop.
So, we waited some more. (fingers tapping) And now here we are in 2020 and I’m wondering whether or not it makes sense now, especially given how low interest rates in the current pandemic.
When I looked back at this in 2019, the calculator on the Tesla website estimated that a Solar Roof would cost about $75,000 for a 2,000 square-foot house. Using the calculator at the time, what I found was that it was actually a 33% premium for the Solar glass versus just a new roof and solar panels, so, really, it didn’t make a lot of sense.

Since Telsa has released version 3 of their Solar Roof, I decided to look at the numbers again to see if a Tesla solar roof is worth the money in 2020. When I reviewed the Tesla solar roof costs last year I decided to numbers were not worth it to get the Tesla V3 solar roof in comparison to just solar panels.
In this video, I’m taking another look at the Tesla v3 Solar Roof to see if it will make financial sense to buy and install a brand new Tesla Solar Roof.
