Solar Roofs - Elon Musk

We have previously spoken of the importance of being a fan. Be a fan of competitors, be a fan of people in your industry, it is ok to appreciate other's work. We have also found the importance of sharing innovative ideas and products with you. Appreciating even the simple advancements is important for us to foster a world of positive change. 

Today, we would like to share Elon Musk's company, Solar City's announcement of a product they will be rolling out later this year. Solar City will be entering the new roof market with their solar roofs. As the article mentions, this is not a move away from the panels we have all undoubtedly seen on top of homes, but a venture into a new market for them. "Create stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage". This is an exciting step in what they call their "Master Plan, Part Deux" which we encourage you all to read. We believe in the need for a sustainable future, Tesla and Solar City give us hope that we will get there some day. 

Sustainability is not just about the environment. Rising energy costs are becoming a real burden to economies everywhere. Our irresponsible actions, putting people's health and well being in danger needs to stop. Sustainable homes is a good start and we could not be more excited to see how these new roofs could positively change our energy crisis.
