Tesla Unveils Sleek, Low-Profile Solar Panel Made by Panasonic

Tesla appears to be going forward with a new type of exclusive solar panel that will be used for all of their future residential projects: SolarCity will no longer be dealing with other suppliers. The panels will be manufactured by Panasonic at the Gigafactory 2 and offer a streamlined look, with integrated front skirts and no visible mounting hardware.

آ…SolarCity, like most solar installers, used solar panels from several different suppliers for its residential and commercial projects, but that’s about to change. Tesla told Electrek that once the new Panasonic module will go into production at Gigafactory 2 this summer, they will be used for all new residential projects going forward. Like the solar roof, the move is part of Elon Musk’s plan to offer solar products with better aesthetics in order to create a distinctive brand that can be differentiated from other installers on a product basis. For the solar panels, that means a ‘sleek and low-profile’ look for all residential installation.
