What if you’re stuck with a $300 solar installation on your roof and you’re desperate to get $1 in cash for it?
If you’re lucky, you may be able to score some good karma with Tesla.
After all, the electric automaker is one of the few manufacturers that actually sells solar panels to customers for free.
And if you’ve already purchased a solar panel from Tesla, you might have the option of getting a rebate for installing the same software in your Tesla.
The software upgrade is called Tesla Direct and the $1 discount is available for anyone who installs the software during the first 12 months after its purchase.
If you decide to pay the $200 rebate, you’ll get a 10-month free trial.
So what does it do?
It lets you download Tesla Direct for free on your computer and use it to install Tesla Direct on your solar panels, even if you don’t have a Tesla.
For instance, if you already have a solar system and you have a $200 solar installation planned, you could just use Tesla Direct to install the Tesla Direct software.
Once installed, you can then use the software to install solar panels for free, which means you could actually get free solar power for installing Tesla Direct.
If this sounds like an awesome deal, you should sign up for Tesla Direct, and if you decide not to use the program, you won’t be charged any additional fees.
If the software you download from Tesla Direct does not work, you have to do a little work to get the free installation.
You’ll need to create a Tesla Direct account, register for a Tesla account, and install the software.
After you have done all that, the software will install itself on your Tesla system.
You can then install TeslaDirect for free through the Tesla website.
You also need to make sure you have an active Tesla account.
After that, you simply need to install and activate TeslaDirect software on your system.
Tesla Direct is a one-time fee that applies to the first-year solar installations.
After a year of using Tesla Directs software, you will not be charged.
If Tesla Direct works, the company will send you an email when you’ve installed Tesla Direct in your system that contains a link to your Tesla account information.
Tesla has also made it possible for Tesla customers who already purchased Tesla Direct solar panels or installed TeslaDirect solar panels online to receive the rebate at a later date.
This will help ensure that Tesla customers receive the money they paid for the software without having to pay anything extra for Tesla to install it.
What are the terms and conditions of Tesla Direct?
You will be billed $1 per installation, with an extra $100 rebate if you install Tesla Solar Power System for free and use the Tesla software for a minimum of 12 months.
The rebate applies to a maximum of one installation.
If your system is already fully installed and you choose to receive a rebate, the rebate will be for the amount of time your system was not in use and is in service.
If a Tesla customer installs a Tesla Solar System or installs TeslaDirect, you also qualify for a $500 rebate on your total solar installation.
