What Tesla Installs at Your Home
Tesla only installs equipment that meets our performance, aesthetic, reliability and value standards. All equipment is backed by a comprehensive, manufacturer’s warranty.
We use all-black, high-efficiency panels that look great on your roof and that maintain their production levels at high temperatures with minimal degradation over their 25-year lifespan.

Tesla Solar Inverter
Your Tesla Solar Inverter is designed for reliability, high efficiency and the ability to maintain it without needing installers to go on your roof. Tesla Solar Inverter has robust safety features, including integrated rapid shutdown, arc fault protection and ground fault protection, and no neutral wire allows for simple installation. Tesla Solar Inverter has twice the standard number of MPPTs, allowing for high production on even complex roofs.
When completing your solar system layout, Tesla’s engineers will select the best solar inverter based on your home’s roof structure and sun exposure. Tesla has found that homeowners lose more energy production — and money — from costly maintenance due to unreliable inverters than from anything else. This choice provides you with reliable equipment without sacrificing overall production.
If Tesla determines that your solar system requires individual panel power optimizers, such as if your home has significant shading, then our engineers will design them in your layout. While individual panel power optimizers help with shading problems, they also consume more energy to do this and are less efficient in full sunlight compared to string inverters. The best solution for solar is always to reduce obstructions and maximize your panels’ exposure to sunlight.
Tesla’s proprietary mounting hardware provides a low-profile installation and allows us to install 30% fewer anchor points on your roof compared to a traditional installation. This is intended to result in fewer issues over time and better aesthetics.
