    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    SO, after I cancelled the project, I received an email saying they would credit me a powerwall (about 10k) after final installation but at the new price ($180k). I gruntingly accepted and said ok - install it. That was the first week of May 2021. Haven't heard *sugar*... they are working on...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I ordered a solar roof with 4 powerwalls 4for $130k in July 2020. 9 months later, after all permits were approved, they raised the price by $50k! WTF!? Even with a signed contract they said I had to pay the additional cost because... they felt like it? After 9 months of waiting and hoping, I...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    I've cancelled the project. Almost a year into it, (all permits completed, inspection done and was just waiting on scheduling) but I won't do a $50k price increase. Current roof is good for another 5 years, I'll wait and see what these Tesla idiots do... or find a similar product thru someone...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Just cancelled my 22.2kw solar roof with 4 power walls. I originally (early this week) accepted the $50k increase, but can no longer justify it... I was lying to myself. I'm retired, and of all the things I could want or have, this solar roof was No 1 on the list. Guess, I'll start looking at...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Just got a call back from my Tesla PM (Jason). He told me no, this is not a glitch and everyone with a contract is getting a new price/cost. My options where to accept the new price or cancel and get my deposit back. I'm going with option 3... News, AG, and I'll lock into a class action....

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Yea, I'm not going to accept an extra $50k charge soon. $130k I can live with, but $180k puts my ROI into 2080.... I'm still hoping this is a glitch!? Guess I'll go to the back of the line... it's only been 9 months since the original order....

    Poll: Official Tesla Motors Club (TMC) T-Shirt. Which version would you want?

    How about Tesla on the front, and SpaceX on the back (already have a Black SpaceX T-shirt, but you can never have too many!) Maybe a rocket exploding on landing on the back??

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Yes, I may have been a bit premature on my part for contacting the AG (frustration level = Max), but I did try and contact my PM both by phone (no answer and voice msg box was full) and via e-mail (no response). Over nine months of waiting on "someone else" (i.e it's in design, or waiting on...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Hi all, it's me again... Finally got all my permits/design completed. Tesla came out to check the roof/attic about 3 weeks ago (3/16/20) and all looked good. Guy gave me a window of 2-4 weeks to finalize installation schedule. Tesla account online shifted to "scheduling". Last week I...

    Strategy on Long Drive

    On my first road trip (about 400 miles), I just plugged in my destination and started out... (I had 35 miles on my new model Y perf. at the time). Long story short... I made it. With 7 miles left on the battery!!!!! I was truly sweating near the end of that trip... Now I plan my own route...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    I guess this is my September update... I called my PM's phone and it went straight to voice mail.... wait for it..... the voice mail box was full. Sigh.... did a chat on 9/8/20 (Tue) and was told someone would contact me immediately.... It's now 9/11/20 afternoon and no contact. Has anyone else...

    um... I only had one choice for the design....I think - I never saw an option!. Oh, and thank you for the comment on the house.... It's our "Forever Home". Time is ticking buy... it's been 6+ weeks from the order/sign date. Sent off a msg earlier today to the "Tesla cloud" asking for an...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Just a quick update - nothing going on! Assume permits are being requested etc.... However, the HOA did contact me today and asked for a sample of the solar glass tile (snicker)... I contacted Tesla and asked, but I already knew what the reply would be... they don't provide samples. I did...

    Red-lining the solar purchase agreement

    Just checked my contract... and yup, they charged me taxes - and I live in Florida. I signed the contract on July 6, so my 10 days ends tomorrow. I don't need another delay though....

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Agree, but we have many large Oak trees with LOTS of Spanish Moss. That's the major thing I'm worried about - covering up the solar glass and clogging the gutters. Last month when I had the gutter folks clean the gutters, they also removed the spanish moss from the roof. You can see some of...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Roof is about 18 years old. Had the roof and gutters cleaned about a month ago. Not keeping the existing roof, as the solar glass replaces the entire roof. Future cleaning should be easy, as you can walk on the solar glass (I think).

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Ok, I'll admit... I thinks it's cool! I'm retired now and do have some extra cash, but working since I was 15 yo and scrimping/getting buy these last 45 years allowed me to do some smart investments along the way. I just retired this past March, bought my dream home and want to enjoy the...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    I'm not sure.... design show about 30% of roof as active tiles - almost half west facing?. See design below (note - design does not show the additional 1,700 sq ft screened in patio/pool/outdoor kitchen). Also, they are saying roof is over 7,300 sq ft (I have the original blue prints that...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    ... Wow, that was a great write up and the daily pics were a real eye opener for me. Thank you for sharing! I was looking forward to the install, but now I can't wait!! That was probably the most useful thing I have read on the solar glass install process. Much appreciated!!

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    ... I agree with most of your points. There are definitely cheaper routes I can go other then solar glass. Battery back up is important to me, as it will allow me to store power during the day and use it at night. I also read that during an outage, solar will not turn on due to backfeed to...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Very true. It's hard to put a price on aesthetics, but I think it's a better look then panels. Others may not agree, but to each their own. We live in a nice gated community and "curb appeal" is as important as square footage etc. I do have a nice home, but it is on the smaller side of this...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    House images... don't have any real good pics of roof, but here's what I have: Front, rt side and back: So about 5,800 sq ft of tile to be replace solar or "soto" solar look alike tiles.

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    I'm in Ocala, FL. Basically the center of FL - about equal distance from coasts east to west. And yes to the math, both panels and glass increase the value of a home. (again, trying to convince the wife why I should spend so much cash.... so I may have left out the other (panel) increase in...

    Why I ordered 22+ kw solar glass roof for $134k

    Hi all, long story, but I will try and abbreviate. Here's my intent: I received my new model Y (3/21/20) in GA, and already bough a new home in FL. So I said to myself (I'm old, I can talk to myself)... I should charge my new MY in my new home with solar!!!! Sounded reasonable at the...

    New Tesla 15.12kW Solar / 4 Powerwall order in Orlando

    No, I think these are regular tiles, but they are about 18 years+ old. Bought the house in April, but the AC was new, not the roof (I had thought the roof was new and the AC was old) :(. Thought I was ok because the pre-home purchase inspection said the roof was fine. I'll try and start new...

    New Tesla 15.12kW Solar / 4 Powerwall order in Orlando

    My 15.12 kw w/ 4 powerwalls was supposed to be installed on 1 July. They showed up early, unloaded two trucks and we discussed placements etc during the unloading. Thought that day would be great.... Within the hour the show stopper occurred: Tiles on the roof were granulating (is that a...

    New Tesla 15.12kW Solar / 4 Powerwall order in Orlando

    Interesting info, thank you. My install starts 1 July 20 (Ocala, Fl) for a 15.12kw system w/ 4 powerwalls. New Pricing and config came out two days ago from Tesla, with increased solar panel output (340w vs current 315w). I requested the new panels, but was told too late unless I cancel and...

    Ditto, ordered the same last week (1/14/2020). I'm going full Tesla, MY, Solar & PW2 to keep it juiced! Now I just need to talk my wife into a M3 to replace her 15 year old Camry (just went over 7,500 miles!! - and it's time to put this years gas in it...) (not a typo... 2005 Camry with 7,500...
