Tesla is getting all the attention when it comes to solar roofs , but some competitors out there are innovating in ways that even Elon Musk hasn’t thought of. 3 in 1 Roof , for instance, offers insulation, extreme wind protection and solar power, all in one. The solar roof system comes in a huge range of finishes, has a lighter load than traditional slate tiles, and is the first to claim zero heat transference into the attic – so it reduces your heating and cooling costs while providing you with clean, green energy. All at about half of the price of a Tesla solar roof. The Ft. Lauderdale-based company calculates that its offering will be about $11 less than Tesla’s solar roof per square foot. It’s also lighter than traditional slate roofing at just 110 pounds per 10 square feet, which means that architects can engineer homes with structures designed to support lighter loads. The roofs are designed to eliminate condensation between the attic deck and insulation, preventing mold and rot. The roofs are also hurricane resistant, standing up to winds at 200 mph.

If you want to nab one, the company is accepting $500 deposits and guarantees it will be ready for installation in 2019 – or you get your deposit, plus $500 back. You can also get a free car station charger if you are one of the first 1,000 to place an order. + 3 in 1 Roof

Comments Off on Tesla slates mysterious product unveiling for October 17

Here’s what we know: Tesla has scheduled an event for October 17 and it’s being called a “product unveiling.” Here’s what we don’t know: what the heck is going to be unveiled. International man of mystery (and, oh yeah, the company’s CEO) Elon Musk shared the news via Twitter , saying the unveil would be “unexpected by most.” In the absence of other details, the auto industry is having a field day speculating about what might happen next week. Many are hoping next week’s announcement will reveal the final design for the Tesla Model 3 , the California-based car company’s long-awaited “affordable” all-electric sports car, which is planned to debut at $35,000. But, is that an announcement that Musk would think is “unexpected by most” or even by anyone? Probably not, since everyone’s been chomping at the bit to learn more about the Model 3 since its initial unveiling back in April. Related: Elon Musk says Tesla will make fully autonomous models by 2018 What else could the secretive entrepreneur have to tell the world? The announcement could have something to do with the Autopilot software , which has undergone numerous updates and fixes since its initial rollout. Yet, Musk just announced two weeks ago that the latest version, featuring radar detection features, was being deployed via over-the-air updates so more news next week seems less likely. The unveil could be related to anything else the company has its mitts in, like a longer range battery. Tesla already has a separate event on the books for October 28, when a big announcement with SolarCity will be made. The focus of that unveiling is no secret, however, as Musk has already let us know that he’ll unveil a solar roof and the long-awaited Powerwall 2.0. An integrated Tesla charger will be part of that package, of course. As usual, we’ll have to wait and see what Tesla and Musk have in store, so check back next Monday to find out what happens when Musk finally lets his proverbial cat out of the bag.
