Camouflage Solar Roof Panels
Elon Musk is known for a lot of things, and now, camouflaged solar panels for your roof will be one of them.
According to our sources, Tesla – Elon Musk’s multi-million-dollar company – was issued a new patent for camouflaged solar panels. “The patent, “ Teslarati states, hints that Tesla may be close to releasing other Solar Roof variants like the Tuscan and Slate tiles” Musk hinted at years ago.
Maria Merano, journalist, states that Musk’s patent describes how Tesla improved the Solar Roof design and its efficiency. His solar panels will obscured, color-matched and fully camouflaged.
So, no more “ugly” solar panels on roofs?
According to Wired in 2016, in an article release around Halloween, “Musk said the secret to the tiles' appearance is a special coating that becomes more or less see-through depending on your viewing angle.” Back then, the appearance of said tiles was talked about as being a “series of micro louvers that work like a privacy screen on a laptop.” Our sources confirmed that Tesla announced it would be working closely with 3M on the technology.
This isn’t Musk’s first go at creating a sleeker version of the solar panel we all know and love. And honestly, it won’t be his last.
Elon Musk’s master plan is to make solar panels as sexy “as electric cars have become.”
