If you can't afford a Tesla in your garage, you could still put Tesla on your roof. Orders open today for Tesla's Solar Roof, the company's founder and CEO Elon Musk has announced.

The tiles will collect energy from the sun to power your home. Orders will open first for the black glass style, with a choice of smooth or textured surfaces. Tesla's Tuscan and French Slate options will follow in about six months.

Musk had previously said that orders would begin in April. In replies to today's announcement on Twitter, Musk said that delivery and installation would begin to other countries next year, including the UK and Australia.
