Is Tesla becoming the “Big-Box Store” of Energy?

Newsletter Story header-Tesla-07.11

If you shop at a big-box or wholesale store, you know you can get just about anything you could ever need, and things you think you need, (or want, or think you might need) but really don’t.  Tesla’s latest news is their bid for Solar City, the nation’s largest residential solar company.  Elon Musk, as reported, is the Chairman and largest single shareholder in both entities, and the “deal” ($2.5B) still has to be approved by the SEC.

 

In the big scope of things, here’s how it would break down:

  1. Sun shines (power transformed) by your “Tesla” solar panels installed by “Solar City”
  2. Electricity powering your home also is stored in your “Tesla” Powerwall battery system (Giga-factory in Nevada)
  3. Your Powerwall is charging up your “Tesla” car in the garage (batteries included) manufactured by “Tesla”
  4. When you are bored, take a trip on “Tesla” Space X (rocket ship) to Mars (batteries included)
