As of January 2021, Greenlee is proud to call ourselves the first and only Certified Tesla Solar Roof Installer in Central Oregon. The Solar Roof is the only roof that can help pay for itself with the energy you produce. There is already a huge demand in our community so give us a call or send us an inquiry for further information.
$50 Proposal Fee
Once you contact us, one of our Sales Representatives will review your submission order a solar scan of your roof and contact you with a rough price estimate.
Is the roof large enough to accommodate sufficient active solar tiles for the desired system size? Roof should have unobstructed space on south, west, and east-facing slopes, free of shade from trees or other structures.
Excessive roof complexity (high number of individual slopes, irregular shapes, numerous dormers and accents) can add a significant labor cost and reduce the available area for active solar generation.
$500 Design Fee
Based on the initial estimate, if you decide Solar Roof could be right for your home, you can move into the formal design phase. In this phase we work with you to more thoroughly evaluate your solar energy goals, project requirements, and production potential for different solar roof configurations. At the completion of this phase, we provide you with:
Before the final installation, we prepare all the necessary permitting and documents to make sure your home, city, and electric company are ready for your Solar Roof.
Solar energy systems are rated based on kilowatts (kW) of DC power and a Solar Roof system could be designed at almost any level, but generally we see 12-18 kW as a typical range. We have projects planned that will be as high as 25kW. Actual annual production of kilowatt hours (kWh) AC power is dependent on other variables that are carefully evaluated during the design process, such as roof slope orientation, expected hours of sunlight, and shading. Our early experience from the design process suggests that most homes in our markets that are otherwise a good design fit can support enough production to replace 95%+ of a home’s annual electrical consumption.
Depending on a homeowner’s electrical needs, we estimate the solar portion of the roof could be between 30-70% of the total roof surface. The PV tiles are all full-size (15” x 45”) roof pieces, so they can generally be placed anywhere there is room for a full tile. Areas near rake edges, valleys, hips, and obstructions usually require partial tiles and metal flashings. In the planning process we also work with Tesla designers to optimize the placement for unobstructed sunlight. This means prioritizing south-facing exposures, as well as east and west.
Yes! For tax year 2021 there is a 26% Investment Tax Credit available that applies to a large portion of a Solar Roof installation and all of a Powerwall installation when done as part of a solar project.
Pricing is still evolving but our general guidance is that a new Solar Roof is likely to cost between $1500-2000 square before incentives. This figure is highly dependent on the size of the photovoltaic (PV) system chosen (the number of “active” PV tiles compared to glass tiles) and the complexity of the roof design and number of obstructions (skylights, chimneys, pipes) on the roof deck. We are optimistic about developing expertise and methods of installing this more efficiently over time to hopefully bring this price down in the future. We have an online configuration tool to help you estimate the price of your project.
A single Powerwall battery storage system installation runs between $15,000 – $18,000 depending on whether other electrical upgrades are necessary. Additional Powerwall units can be added for around $10,000 to increase storage and backup capacity.
The system is designed to be installed on nearly any common sloped roof design in the market today. The system has the best value and most competitive installed pricing when a roof has a few large rectangular slopes with good south-facing exposures. We find that roofs with an excessive amount of hips and valleys or with a large number of dormers or a large proportion of small slopes are extremely labor-intensive leading to an unusually high installation cost.
Don’t worry! Solar Roof is easy to repair in almost every situation. One of the advantages of working with a local company like Greenlee is that we have a service department that can respond quickly and we have an inventory of spare parts on hand. We use specialized hand tools that allow us to easily remove individual tiles to service cabling or components underneath or to snap in replacement tiles if needed.
We are proud to service all of Central Oregon.
We Serve All of Central Oregon (Bend, Redmond, Sunriver, Madras, Culver, Prineville, Sisters)
- Pay Less for Electricity: Solar Roof is the only roof that can help pay for itself with the energy you produce. Power your home at the lowest price per watt of any national provider and take control of your monthly electricity bill.
- Built to Last: Solar Roof tiles are more than three times stronger than standard roofing tiles and are engineered for all-weather protection. With a 25-year warranty, Solar Roof lasts longer than an average roof and protects your home for decades to come.
- Maximum Solar Production: Generate the most energy possible, even on roofs with complicated angles and intermittent sunlight. Powered by Tesla Solar Inverter, your fully integrated system is safe and reliable. With built-in connectivity, Tesla Solar Inverter will continue to improve with each over-the-air software update.
