I’m really impressed by Elon Musk’s new solar roof shingles.  With a new aesthetic, I hope that individual solar will now accelerate more quickly into residential communities.  Can’t wait to see solar’s upgrade in  NJ.

There have been a number of solar shingle products introduced to the market: Atlantis, AstroPower, UniSolar, BP Solar, PowerLight, Dow, Suntegra and CertainTeed.  Currently, only CertainTeed, Suntegra and Atlantis roof shingles are still available, perhaps because historically high component and installation costs.  Hoping Musk can bring the price down and the marketing up to a level that makes this an attractive alternative to old style roof solar panel systems.
