Tesla Solar Roof and Pool Heating System Compatible?

Has anyone installed a pool heating system (solar) on top of a Tesla Solar Roof? Is that even possible?


  • Just to clarify. I am assuming that the roof has enough non-solar tiles where the heating system could be installed.
  • I'd recommend against it. I don't know how you'd attach anything to the roof once the solar roof is installed. These are all glass tiles. You can't drill through them to make attachment points. You might pull out some tiles, but these are designed with a 1" gap under them to help cool the backsides of the solar tiles. Interfering with that airflow might not be good for the solar portion either. Sorry, I don't see a good way to do both on the same roof.
