Solar Equipment Manufacturer Evolves, Tesla Model Y Availability, J.D. Power’s Tesla Evaluation — CleanTechnica Top 20

The 20 most popular stories of last week on CleanTechnica were led by an interesting story of a solar manufacturing equipment maker moving into the solar cell manufacturing game (got that?), followed by a lot of Tesla stories, some hype for lithium-iron-phosphate batteries, Toyota announcing that it had done a horrendous job forecasting demand for the RAV4 Prime (leading to a battery shortfall and production suspension), Sydney inspiring the world by going 100% renewable (for electricity).
