On October 28 Tesla and SolarCity are set to reveal a solar roof and an integrated “Powerwall 2.0 battery and Tesla charger”. In September, the billionaire said the new energy efficient rooftop would be publicly seen for the first time in the San Fransisco Bay area on October 28.
The roof – which is said to be made entirely out of solar cells – will also look to integrate products from Musk’s electric car company. It will come with an “integrated” home battery (Powerwall 2.0) and also a Tesla charger. (Source- wired.co.uk / Image- learnbonds.com)
