“When you look around the neighbourhood in the future, a decade from now, what do you want? What products are going to make your life better? What future do you want? And I think a future where we've got beautiful roofs generating energy that is tough and resilient and better in every way than a regular roof and alive with energy, that's the future we want. Solar Roof is a killer product. This will become obvious next year,” he said. 

Tesla has been reportedly been facing some issues with the deployment of solar roofs which it sells in tandem with the Powerwall battery pack for homes. “Total solar deployments more than doubled in Q3 to 57 MW compared to the prior quarter, with Solar Roof deployments almost tripling sequentially,” revealed Musk.
