What is reason for Tesla Solar Shingles not passing Building codes in Minnesota?

Hi,

I contacted All Energy Solar today in Minnesota and they stated that Tesla Solar Shingles are not available in Minnesota due to not passing local building/fire safety codes.

Does anyone know exactly what codes they are not passing and what Tesla is doing to rectify the situation?

Thanks!

Does All Energy Solar speak for Tesla? Sounds like pure fiction to me. Tesla hasn't started customer installations in any major way, and I doubt they have had any discussions with Minnesota building/fire code people.

Very likely All Energy Solar wants to sell you something they have available in stock today instead.

It seems to me that if AES knows that Tesla solar shingles do not meet Minnesota code, AES should also know why.

It also seems to me that a better place to ask your question would be your local code official.
