Tesla Solar Roof

As a certified Tesla installer, Coastal Energy is in a unique position to install some of the most sought after solar products on the market. The Tesla Solar Roof offers several benefits that make it an attractive option for homeowners considering solar energy:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: One of the most significant advantages of Tesla Solar Roof is its sleek and stylish design. Unlike traditional solar panels, which are mounted on top of existing roofs, Tesla Solar Roof integrates solar cells directly into the roof tiles. This seamless integration creates a visually appealing and cohesive look that enhances the curb appeal and value of the home.
  • Durability: Tesla Solar Roof tiles are made from tempered glass, which is highly durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions, such as hail, wind, and snow. Tesla claims that its solar roof tiles are three times stronger than standard roofing tiles, providing long-lasting protection for your home.
  • Energy Efficiency: Tesla Solar Roof is designed to maximize energy production by capturing sunlight and converting it into electricity. The solar roof tiles are equipped with high-efficiency solar cells that generate clean, renewable energy to power your home, reducing your reliance on the grid and lowering your electricity bills.
  • Customization Options: Tesla Solar Roof offers various tile styles and colors to suit different architectural styles and personal preferences. Homeowners can choose from options such as Textured Glass, Smooth Glass, Tuscan Glass, and Slate Glass to complement their home's aesthetic and blend seamlessly with the existing roof.
  • Integration with Powerwall: Tesla Solar Roof can be combined with Tesla Powerwall, a home battery storage system, to store excess solar energy generated during the day for use at night or during power outages. This integration provides homeowners with greater energy independence and resilience, allowing them to maximize their solar energy usage and reduce their reliance on the grid.
  • Long-Term Savings: While the upfront cost of Tesla Solar Roof may be higher compared to traditional roofing materials, it can provide significant long-term savings through reduced energy costs and potential incentives, such as federal tax credits and state rebates. Over time, the energy savings generated by Tesla Solar Roof can offset the initial investment, making it a financially attractive option for many homeowners.
  • Warranty and Guarantee: Tesla offers a warranty for its Solar Roof products, providing peace of mind and protection against defects in materials and workmanship. The warranty covers the solar roof tiles and the energy production of the system for a specified period, ensuring that homeowners receive reliable performance and support.

Not all solar companies have Tesla certification status, but Coastal Energy offers a range of Tesla solar products including the Tesla Solar Roof.

Installs Traditional Tesla Panels

Both Tesla solar panels and Tesla Solar Roof offer unique benefits, and the choice between them depends on factors such as aesthetics, budget, energy needs, and roof type. To accomodate more homeowners and provide additional choices for a more customized experience, Coastal Energy also installs Tesla solar panels which is slightly different from the Solar Roof. Benefits of having Tesla solar panels installed by Coastal Energy include:

  • Cost-Effective: Tesla solar panels are typically more cost-effective than Solar Roof, making them a more budget-friendly option for homeowners looking to install solar energy systems.
  • Versatility: Tesla solar panels can be installed on a variety of roof types, including asphalt shingles, tile, metal, and flat roofs. They are also suitable for ground-mounted installations, providing flexibility in system design and placement.
  • Efficiency: Tesla solar panels are known for their high efficiency and energy production capabilities. They are designed to maximize energy output and optimize performance, helping homeowners generate more electricity from their solar energy system.
  • Quick Installation: Tesla solar panels can be installed relatively quickly compared to Solar Roof, making them a convenient option for homeowners who want to start saving on their energy bills sooner rather than later.
  • Scalability: Tesla solar panels are scalable, allowing homeowners to start with a smaller system size and expand it over time as their energy needs change or their budget allows. This scalability makes them a flexible option for long-term energy planning.

Depending on specific pitch needs and other contributing factors, the experts at Coastal Energy will likely offer a panel or roof solution that will allow for increased energy independence. 

Powerwall Benefits

In addition to installing Tesla solar panels and the Tesla Solar Roof, the professionals at Coastal Energy are also equipped to install one of the best solar batteries on the market - the Tesla Powerwall. The Tesla Powerwall is a home battery storage system designed to store excess energy generated by solar panels or from the grid for later use. Here are several benefits of the Tesla Powerwall:

  • Energy Independence: With a Tesla Powerwall installed, homeowners can store excess energy generated by their solar panels during the day and use it during periods of high demand or at night. This reduces their reliance on the grid and provides greater energy independence.
  • Backup Power: The Tesla Powerwall serves as a backup power source in the event of a grid outage. During a blackout, the Powerwall automatically switches to provide electricity to critical appliances and devices in the home, ensuring that homeowners have access to power when they need it most.
  • Peak Demand Shaving: The Powerwall can help homeowners reduce their electricity bills by storing energy when electricity rates are low and using it during peak demand periods when rates are higher. This allows homeowners to avoid paying high peak demand charges and save money on their utility bills.
  • Load Shifting: By storing excess solar energy during the day and using it during the evening or at night, the Powerwall enables homeowners to shift their energy usage to times when electricity rates are lower. This can result in significant cost savings over time.
  • Grid Support: The Tesla Powerwall can provide grid support services, such as frequency regulation and voltage stabilization, to help improve the stability and reliability of the electrical grid. This can benefit both homeowners and utilities by reducing the risk of power outages and improving grid performance.
  • Compact Design: The Powerwall features a sleek and compact design that can be easily installed in a variety of locations, both indoors and outdoors. Its modular design allows for scalability, so homeowners can add multiple Powerwall units to meet their energy storage needs.
  • Remote Monitoring and Control: Tesla provides a mobile app that allows homeowners to monitor their Powerwall system remotely and control its operation. This includes tracking energy production and consumption in real-time, adjusting settings, and receiving notifications about system status and performance.
  • Environmental Benefits: By storing excess solar energy and reducing reliance on fossil fuel-based electricity generation, the Tesla Powerwall helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. This makes it an environmentally friendly option for homeowners looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

With Coastal Energy, homeowners are able to seamlessly integrate every aspect of its solar products to ensure maximum performance throughout the duration of the system's lifetime.

AI Estimate

A unique features available to prospective clients through the Coastal Energy service is its AI measurement and estimate tool. Entirely only, interested homeowners can have their roof measured, identify the ideal products and materials and then receive a customized quote for solar services and installation. 

This process is more straightforward and far more accessible than traditional estimate means available through most solar providers. Coastal Energy has made the research portion of the purchasing process more accessible and comfortable for prospective customers. 


The Bad

  • Service Area
  • Lack of Financing Options

Service Area

As a Tesla certified installer or dealer, Coastal Energy is quite limited in terms of a service area. Coastal Energy solely installs solar products within the state of Florida, specifically the following areas and cities:

  • Estero
  • Naples
  • Cape Coral
  • Orlando
  • North Captiva Island
  • Marco Island
  • Sanibel Island
  • Cayo Costa
  • Fort Myers
  • LeHigh Acres
  • West Palm Beach
  • Ft Lauderdale
  • Miami
  • Florida Keys

Outside of these cities, Coastal Energy will not be able to take on the solar project. Even though most solar providers are "local" operations, many have a larger service area than Coastal Energy services.

Lack of Financing Options

Solar is an expensive investment. It is designed to pay off in the long run, but upfront it comes at a steep cost. That is why the majority of solar installers offer a number of financing options. Traditionally, homeowners have access to the following financing solutions:

  • Solar Loan
  • Solar Lease
  • Power Purchase Agreement

These flexible financing avenues make it possible for many homeowners access solar when they otherwise would be unable to do so. Unfortunately, Coastal Energy does not offer these solar financing solutions so cash with the federal tax credit will be the only means of payment. 


The Bottom Line

There are a wide range of benefits when going through Coastal Energy for solar installation particularly its association with Tesla solar products. Tesla Solar Roof offers a combination of aesthetic appeal, durability, energy efficiency, customization options, and long-term savings that make it an appealing choice for homeowners looking to invest in solar energy and upgrade their home's roof which Coastal Energy regularly installs for homeowners. If the Solar Roof is not the answer for whatever reason, Coastal Energy also installs Tesla solar panels. The Tesla Powerwall offers a range of benefits, including energy independence, backup power, cost savings, grid support, and environmental sustainability. These advantages make it a popular choice for homeowners looking to optimize their energy usage, increase resilience, and reduce their environmental impact.

Despite offering a number of valuable services and products, there are downsides to working with Coastal Energy. The company's service area is restricted to particular cities within the state of Florida and there is not much wiggle room there. Additionally, there are no financing options through Coastal Energy but the company will help homeowners access the federal tax credit.

Homeowners specifically interested in having Tesla solar products installed that live within the Coastal Energy service area should strongly consider the company for its services and Tesla access.
