    This thread has gotten somewhat derailed. To report what I found out after Tesla's site visit:


    1. They are only using Hanwa Q cells at this point (apparently this is a recent change so some of the reps still think they are using panasonic cells). The rep I spoke to claims that all the capacity at the Buffalo Factory is dedicated to the solar roof which I know is BS, but I didn't feel like arguing with the guy. Brings up the question of what is going on with the Tesla/Panasonic solar partnership if Tesla isn't using their own panels. Maybe they can't make them in the USA using the high quality Panasonic modules cheap enough to get to their new price points.

    2. I have decided to go with another installer who is offering me the Panasonic 320 watt panels and SolarEdge inverter/optimizers for $3.10 a watt.

      You will be better off in the end for avoiding Tesla.
