Tesla/SolarCity launches multiple styled solar roof tiles replicating original tile aesthetics

Conventional solar PV (photovoltaic) modules are attached to residential sloping roofs via a mounting system that is positioned within the boundaries of the roofing area and slightly above the roofing height profile.
