  • Must be a similar system (including an inverter, and 10 year warranty).
  • Must be within 14 days.
  • Must have same name and address.

If the competitor’s quote meets the above criteria, follow these steps to take advantage of the Tesla price match guarantee:

  1. Place an order to compare prices
  2. Email Tesla with a copy of your competitive proposal:
    • To: energyorder@tesla.com 
    • Subject Line: Price Match Guarantee
    • Body: Reservation Number
    • Attach your competitive offer
  3. Tesla will compare your proposal to the price of our comparable system size and inform you of eligibility; as long as it is received prior to your scheduled installation date.

It’s not likely that competitors will be able to offer a lower price than Tesla, however it’s nice to have the peace of mind that Tesla will give you the lowest price no matter what.
