Planned Solar Panels on Ceramic Tile Roof
So I just learned today that my planned order of 12.24kw solar panels on my ceramic roof with the additional 3 powerwalls has taken an expensive turn. After a roof inspector came I received from Tesla the need to upgrade my roof costing an additional $12000. So here's my question. Why not recommend Tesla Solar Roof? Would this not be a better option in my case to switch from my planned Solar Panels to Solar Roof Tiles?
I hear that the panels are more efficient, but if I need to throw $12,000 on roof repairs, I figure the better option would still be to replace the roof to look nicer with the solar tiles, than with the panels that are not as atheistic.
Any wisdom from anyone as I consider what to do? Would Tesla even let me switch at this point? Any words of advise would be appreciated.
