The Bottleneck-Installation Time Of Tesla Solar Roof

When the new product was first introduced, Tesla said that the time required for installation was roughly equivalent to the time to install a common tile roof, usually 5 to 7 days. Peter Rive, co-founder and CTO of SolarCity, who was Tesla's director of solar technology at the time, said that the installation of solar roofs is actually easier than solar panel installation. This is a bold proposition, but it has not yet been realized. After two years, the average time required to complete the installation is still about two weeks.
A Tesla solar installer confirmed that the company's last installation took 12 days to complete. This is about twice the installation time of standard tile roofs, and Tesla also encountered capacity bottlenecks during the launch of the product.
The roof is labor intensive, and the longer it takes, the higher the cost. At first, Tesla installed new solar products in the homes of employees and managers, but it started installing the products for customers a year ago.
They are still promoting the installation process for about two weeks: "The installation time depends on the size and complexity of the roof, but most installations take about two weeks to complete. After installation, using the program to provide operational privileges (PTO), you can Start using the Solar Roof. PTO requirements vary by region and utility."
The PTO may spend a lot of time between the completion of the solar power generation solar roof installation and the actual commissioning.
Tesla first installed solar roofs for its customers in April 2018, but it did not seem to have much improvement during this period. Tesla told the media that they are working hard and expect this situation to improve this year.
