The newly announced Tesla Solar Roof Tiles are the third part of the technology brand's new energy solutions that aim to make the ability to live off the grid more realistic. Each of the roof shingles is integrated with solar cells that allow them to discreetly capture the energy from the sun without looking like the traditional solar panels available on the market today.

The roof shingles are designed to look, according to Elon Musk, "as good or better" than traditional roofing materials. The solar panel shingles set purported to come in a variety of different tile styles including Smooth Glass, Tuscan Glass, Textured Glass and Slate Glass.

The Tesla Solar Roof Tiles have been announced, but information regarding release and pricing are not yet available.
