Elon Musk says Tesla hopes to ramp up solar roof production in Buffalo

Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk still is expecting production to ramp up this year for the company’s long-awaited solar roof that will be produced in Buffalo.

Musk said in a tweet Monday night that the company is “spooling up production line rapidly. Hoping to manufacture ~1000 solar roofs/week by end of this year.”

Musk’s tweet came after Tesla issued a second-quarter earnings report that made no mention of the solar roof and executives provided no update during a conference call with analysts on the production schedule for a product that the company is counting on to jump-start its rapidly shrinking solar energy business.
