Watch Tesla CEO and SolarCity chairman, Elon Musk present the solar house powered by solar roof and Powerwall 2.0

Musk showcases new energy products to illustrate benefits of merging his firm with solar installer SolarCity.


During a press event at Universal Studios in L.A., Elon Musk announced that Tesla will build and sell its own line of solar panels with integrated batteries.

He also unveiled the PowerWall 2, which will allow residential homeowners to replace their entire roof with solar panels, making it much simpler for homes to be entirely powered by solar energy.

“This is sort of the integrated future. An electric car, a Powerwall and a solar roof. The key is it needs to be beautiful, affordable and seamlessly integrated,” Musk said while showcasing the products on homes once used as the set for the US TV drama Desperate Housewives in Los Angeles.
