SolarCity Thinks It Can Replace 5 Million Roofs With 'Solar Shingles'
SolarCity doesn't want to just install solar panels on your roof; it wants solar panels to be your roof.By Ben Lawson | September 6, 2016
SolarCity thinks it can convince 5 million American households to replace their roofs with solar energy shingles.
Instead of installing panels like these on top of an existing roof, the company is working on "solar shingles" that would replace a home's roof and absorb solar energy.
About 1 million Americans have solar panels on their homes, so adding another 5 million to that list would be quite the accomplishment.
