Tesla and SolarCity have revealed their new Solar Roof. Unlike traditional panels, the Solar Roof is made of glass tiles that house the solar panels. This means a longer lasting roof compared to traditional slate shingles as the glass can weather even harsh ice. The glass tiles also fulfil an aesthetic purpose as they generally look better than traditional slate.
While Tesla was initially focused on producing electric vehicles for consumers, it has since expanded into powering homes through battery and solar energy. Elon Musk, Founder of Tesla, hopes to provide consumers with the potential to power their homes without relying on a power grid.
Power consumption can be an issue when your computer or laptop have too many unnecessary programmes running in the background. This can not only slow down your system but lead to an increase in power use.
