45634573676777

Tesla has unveiled roof tiles with built-in solar panels in a presentation made by Tesla chief executive Elon Musk.

According to the BBC report, the tiles, made from glass, are intended to be a more attractive way to add solar panels to homes, compared with currently-used solar technology.

The launch took place in Universal Studios, Los Angeles, on what used to be the set for the television show Desperate Housewives, the BBC added.

It comes with Tesla due to take over struggling energy firm Solar City.

Some of the electric carmaker’s investors have expressed concern over the takeover, suggesting it is a Tesla-funded bail-out of a company Mr Musk has a vested interest in as its biggest shareholder, explained the BBC.
