Tesla Just Unveiled Its Newest Solar Panels

Futurism:  Last weekend, Tesla updated their website’s “Energy” section to release images of their new low-profile solar panels made by Panasonic. Tesla has been making news with their increased focus on green-energy innovations, and this fresh take on solar panels for preexisting homes and other buildings gives more people the option to go off-grid.

These panels use invisible mounting hardware and integrated front skirts to blend into your roof seamlessly for a cleaner, more streamlined look. This understated system was originally created by Zep Solar, which was acquired by SolarCity before Tesla acquired the whole package.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
