# Tesla Solar Roof Cost Calculator

Introduction: The Tesla Solar Roof Cost Calculator allows you to estimate the total cost of installing a Tesla Solar Roof based on your roof area, desired solar coverage percentage, and installation cost. Get a quick approximation of the expenses associated with transitioning to a solar-powered roof.

Formula: The total cost is calculated using the formula: Total Cost = (Roof Area * Solar Coverage / 100) * Installation Cost. This formula considers the roof area, the percentage of the roof covered by solar tiles, and the installation cost.

How to Use:

1. Enter the total area of your roof in square feet.
2. Specify the percentage of the roof you want to cover with solar tiles.
3. Input the estimated installation cost.
4. Click the “Calculate” button to see the estimated total cost.
5. The result will be displayed below the button.

Example: For example, if your roof area is 2,000 square feet, you want 80% solar coverage, and the installation cost is \$30,000, the total cost would be (2000 * 80 / 100) * 30000 = \$48000.
