So even though I got Tesla solar and will be getting two Powerwalls some people have said things are slow on the Solar Roof side. I don’t take it to heart but still have heard it. So I decided to give a call LOL.
To start and from the Tesla Energy webpage.
In our quest to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy, Tesla manufactures infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products – solar panels, Solar Roof, the Powerwall home battery, and the Powerpack battery system. The Powerpack is more for commercial and utility-scale sites.
These products make use of the most sustainable energy source: the sun. In 2017, Tesla began production of solar cells and modules at Gigafactory 2 – a 1.2 million square-foot facility in Buffalo, New York.
In Q4 2017, Tesla also started manufacturing Solar Roof. This I talked about at CES. However it consists of uniquely designed and extremely durable glass tiles. Those tiles bring sustainable electricity production to any home. Today, there are nearly 800 employees at Gigafactory 2.
Originally a steel manufacturing site, the 88-acre property located along the Buffalo River was transformed to produce solar panels and solar cells. The factory’s original occupant entered into an agreement with the Research Foundation for the State University of New York. Tesla secured Gigafactory 2 through its acquisition of SolarCity in 2016.
