roof slope limitation?

anyone knows if there limitations of what kind of roof design the solar roof product is capable of installing?

our house do have roof with more than 45 degree slopes, the Gambrel roof style.

are we currently rule out of solar roof product completely?


  • A house with a solar roof a few blocks from me has a very steep roof > 45 degrees, so they may be able to do yours. I don't know what the limits are.
  • Hello, I have a Dutch Colonial with gambrel roofs. Tesla stated they were not able to place the solar roof in those high degree areas, but were willing to place a "rolled torch" instead in those areas. I declined and cancelled the order. They did refund me my $100 deposit. I hope this helps.
