Tesla has been making significant strides in the solar energy industry, particularly in the production of its solar panels. Recently, the company has been using more powerful solar panels made by Panasonic at its Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo for its solar retrofit business. In fact, Tesla has reportedly started using a new 330-watt solar module, which the company claims is made to their specifications.

However, the ramp-up at Gigafactory 2 has been notoriously difficult. This has resulted in slow progress for Tesla’s own solar modules made by Panasonic at the factory. While most people have been focusing on the delays in producing Tesla’s solar roof tiles, the company has also faced difficulties with the production of its own solar modules.

Despite the struggles, the company seems to be moving in the right direction. A few months ago, Tesla started using its own “Tesla-branded” solar panels made at Gigafactory 2. This shift coincided with the introduction of the new 330-watt solar module that Tesla is using.

Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, has been pushing for a product differentiation with its solar products by creating exclusive, in-house solar panels. In 2017, Tesla unveiled a new “sleek and low-profile” exclusive all-black solar panel made by Panasonic. Interestingly, the latest solar panel for Tesla looks more like other solar panels on the market, unlike the black sheet design of its predecessor. However, it is possible that it contributed to the cost reduction of Tesla’s solar system.

As financial considerations are still the most important factor in the industry, Tesla has recently reduced the price of its solar systems by up to 20%. With these cost reductions, more people should be able to afford Tesla’s solar panels, which comes with excellent quality and specifications.

Overall, Tesla’s advances in the solar industry are exciting and notable. The use of more powerful solar panels made by Panasonic and the cost reductions of its solar systems make the company more competitive within the industry. As Tesla continues to focus on green energy solutions, it will be interesting to see how the company progresses with its solar products in the future.
