1/ On 10/25/19 Elon Musk and $tsla conducted an IR call to tell us all about the new V3 solar roof. Lies were abundant. Two were most notable. 1) production of 1k roofs per week; 2) installation will take approximately 8 hours. I will focus on the latter. pic.twitter.com/jf3y1XKcc5— Nikola’s Stache (@BSA19741) November 8, 2019
2/ In order for the 8 hour estimate, (or anything in that realm) to be true requires a radically different process and product than what has been installed in recent weeks. We know the size is 3x larger and, per the call, the number of connections have been “cut in half” $tsla pic.twitter.com/S0A0uST0y0— Nikola’s Stache (@BSA19741) November 8, 2019
3/ we know little else because $tsla neither showed us the product nor explained what’s changed. So what does a recent install look like? Here’s one from August in Ventura. Happens to be Kyle Field’s of @cleantechnica. Does this look like 8 hours to you? Looks simple right? pic.twitter.com/OPW4omKluR— Nikola’s Stache (@BSA19741) November 8, 2019
4/ how about one from July in Virginia? He was told by Vegas $tsla scheduling it would be 2 weeks to install. When the team arrived, they said 4-6 weeks.— Nikola’s Stache (@BSA19741) November 8, 2019
There was only one rain out day. 30 freaking days to lay all the tiles! pic.twitter.com/4CWupcS5AM
6/ In short… it’s a mess…. and was just weeks ago.— Nikola’s Stache (@BSA19741) November 8, 2019
Ask yourself: what’s more likely?
1) $tsla is on the verge of a breakthrough that will reduce this 4 week disaster to 8 hours? … and they’re going through all this for the hell of it.

Update yesterday on V3 Roof Install began November 15th: “after a rain delay the roof is almost done, next week gutters and powerwall”
Three weeks and counting…$TSLAQ pic.twitter.com/3TWBGM8L2R
