I am looking at going Tesla for solar but debating the cost per watt vs the competition. I love the brand but is it worth it in the end? Price, Monitoring, quality of install/panels, warranty!
I have received about 8 quotes from local and national solar installers with the best price at $2.90/w and most right around $3-3.15/w. Tesla is $3.56/w. All with the same or similar equipment.
Tesla also has the lowest warranty at 20 years vs competition at 25+ and what appears to be horrible reviews. However, they have the best monitoring app (in my opinion) and longevity in the business.
