Solar roof tiles are here. Last week, we reported on the first few customer installations of the new Tesla solar roof tiles, but the systems were unfortunately not up and running due to delays with the local electric utility.
Now one of those first customer installations is now connected to the grid and working.
Tesla told Electrek last week that the system is rated at 9.85 kW at full capacity.Later on, the owner shared another screenshot on Twitter showing the system producing 6.2 kW and since the Powerwall was now charged, it started feeding electricity from the solar roof into the grid:
We spoke with Tri Huynh and his ‘Tesla house of the future’ with a Tesla solar roof installation and 3 Powerwalls.
He gave us a great exclusive look at his new energy system, but he didn’t expect it to be ready until a long-delayed grid connection was up and running with his local electric utility, which could take up to 2 months.
Another early Tesla Solar Roof customer was in a similar situation, but she confirmed this weekend that her system is now up and running – making it likely the first working Tesla solar roof installation aside from the early installation at the homes of Tesla employees and company insiders:
