As Elon Musk's one man crusade to ward off the environmental apocalypse continues, Tesla's latest venture sees the innovators join forces with Panasonic for a range of sleek, easy-install solar panels.

Rather than ripping apart pre-existing setups, these tiles are designed to seamlessly attach to the roof with its easy mounting system. With integrated front skirts and no visible mounting hardware, Tesla claims the tiles offer a clean, streamlined look. The system was developed by Zep Solar, a mounting equipment company acquired by SolarCity, which in turn was acquired by Tesla.

The hardware is part of a new deal with Panasonic that sees the Japanese electronics giant manufacture equipment for the company on an exclusive basis. It's said the panels will shape the future of Tesla's offerings in the residential solar industry.

You can fill a quote request for the panels on Tesla's website, but actual installation timeframes are yet to be finalized.

Last week, Tesla was named as the second most valuable car company behind GM.
