Company says ‘typical homeowner’ can expect to pay $21.85 per square foot for solar roof

Tesla Inc. started taking orders on its solar roof on Wednesday, saying the product’s price is comparable with the price of a regular roof once energy savings are factored in.

Earlier Wednesday, Chief Executive Elon Musk had spilled the beans on the solar roof orders to his 8.6 million followers on Twitter.

In other posts, he said the smooth and textured glass tiles will be first, with tiles that mimic slate and clay (called “Tuscan”) coming in about six months, he said.
