Tesla has launched a rental program of its roof tiles which are solar mini panels. The company hopes that in this way it will increase the demand for the solar roof technology it developed, informs TechCrunch. Elon Musk says people who take advantage of the Tesla offer can save $500 a year on utility bills.
Telsa is offering its clients the option to rent solar systems for anywhere from $65 for a small installation to $195 for its largest installation. Customers only need to pay a fully refundable $100 charge. The contract may be canceled any time, but Tesla would charge $1,500 to remove the system once it has been installed.
