Tesla is officially taking orders for its solar glass roof, which are said to be cheaper than a regular roof with an "infinity warranty."

Elon Musk tweeted on Wednesday that the solar roof can be ordered in "almost any country." The roofs will be deployed this year in the U.S. and overseas in 2018.
