Never Worry About Losing Power Again

Solar energy is perhaps one of our most renewable energy sources. Garnering the power of the sun to power your home with reliable, clean energy will help you live a simple and sustainable life. Now you can access solar power AND have a beautiful roof!

Tesla’s Solar Roof brings you energy-efficient roofing with energy savings and the visual appeal of a modern-looking roof. When your neighbors have lost power, your lights will still be on thanks to your Tesla Solar Roof and Powerwall.

Tesla Benefits

  • Generate your own power
  • Have a backup if the power goes out
  • Eliminate the need for a backup generator
  • Lower carbon footprint
  • Save money on energy
  • Live off the grid
  • Never worry about the power going out again

Tesla cares about the quality of your roof. Only an Authorized Installer can purchase and install Tesla roofs, and each one is inspected by Tesla to ensure the highest quality. Kelly Roofing is proud to be an authorized Tesla installer for Roofing, Powerwalls, and Power Inverters.

How Does Tesla’s Roof Work

Converting Solar Power

Solar energy produces multiple spectrums of light; even moonlight generates power, albeit much less than the sun. The energy is collected by your Tesla Solar Roof as DC (Direct Current). It passes through a Power Inverter where it is converted to AC (Alternating Current) so you can use it to power your building.

Backup Power

In the event of a power outage, your house still has power. Backup generators can take up to 10 minutes to start, but Powerwall has a nearly instant start, so you won’t notice a power outage. Your Powerwall recharges with solar, giving you virtually infinite access to electricity.

Self-powered Home

When electricity is used, power is pulled directly from your Tesla Solar Roof rather than pulling from the electric utility company. At night, stored energy from the Powerwall is used.



Pairing your Tesla Solar Roof with Powerwall allows you to reduce your reliance on grid power. Load shifting is also available so you can switch between solar and fossil energy to save money on your energy bill.

Home Energy Monitoring

The Tesla app helps you monitor how much solar power is being generated and also your energy consumption. Any Tesla products you use can be monitored in the app, giving you real-time and historical data to track all of your energy data.

What Tesla Solar Roofs Look Like

The Tesla Solar Roof was designed to be a clean, modern roof. It is aesthetically pleasing and designed for the future. It has the highest fire rating available, hail resistance, and high wind uplift approval, making it a good choice for your Florida building.

Unlike other roofs, the Tesla roof is strong enough to walk, or even run, across; but should be left to the professionals.

Tesla Solar Roof vs. Other Solar Roofs

Tesla Solar Roofs are the first and only solar photovoltaic array that is both the roofing material and the power-producing panel in one. This helps keep pricing in line and provide a premium roof system that pays for itself over time. Traditional solar roof panels are added to your roof, which can raise roofing issues when not installed correctly.

Tesla Roofs are guaranteed for 25 years, which covers all the roof components as well, providing one of the most comprehensive warranties in the roofing industry. Solar panels also last upwards of 25 years but they produce less and less power as they age.

For roofs covered by trees or blocked by a neighboring highrise, the orientation may limit the amount of PV power production. Southern, Eastern, and Western facing roof plains will give you the best solar yield.

Cost comparison

Pricing is based on the size of the roof, size of the PV array, and the number of Powerwall battery backup systems required. Tesla’s online calculator is a great starting point for basic pricing; however, keep in mind this doesn’t include removing your existing roof or installing the Powerwall. 

Kelly Roofing will help you decide if investing in a new roof now or maintaining your existing one makes more financial sense. We try to pair a large enough PV array and Powerwalls to eliminate the need to use utility company electricity for maximum efficiency and early payback. Our method of price comparison looks at a per-year cost for each option and provides a quantitative approach to making this decision.
