Walmart Is Re-Energizing Tesla Solar Systems After Settling Lawsuit With Tesla

November 6th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Reuters has reported that Walmart and Tesla have settled their lawsuit. The lawsuit Walmart filed back in July claimed that Tesla solar panels caught fire on the roof of 7 stores in the United States. On Monday, November 4th, 2019, a court filing showed that Walmart voluntarily discontinued without prejudice. In other words, Walmart dropped the lawsuit


Polestar Pricing … Electric Mazda … Tesla Model 3 = #6 In USA — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of October were led by Polestar and Mazda. Seriously. No offense to Polestar or Mazda (okay, some offense to Polestar and Mazda), but I wouldn't have seen that coming a mile away. Does this show a great thirst for more EV news beyond Tesla and more serious EV entries? Possibly. Or it was just some lucky timing and catchy headlines. Or all of the above. In any case, that's where things landed in October. Tesla still dominated the top 20, with 15 out of 20 stories, but it was an interesting phenomenon to see the company almost pushed out of the top


Tesla Bulls Warned Tesla Shorts — 5 Key Warnings

November 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

As you may have seen, Tesla recently showed another quarterly profit, which apparently shocked the market enough that the Tesla [TSLA] stock price shot up. I don't follow the stock closely, but I am a shareholder and find the whole "Tesla bull vs Tesla short" debate quite fascinating. I've had several thoughts on the stock and these different investment communities in the past week, but the one that shot to the front most quickly and strongly was simple: TSLA bulls warned the TSLA shorts


Electric Mazda … Porsche vs. Tesla Launchonanza … Gold-Free Perovskite Solar — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Mazda? Mazda? A possibly lame-ass electrification effort from Mazda? Yes, apparently, that was somehow our most popular article of the week last week here on CleanTechnica. Will more than 100,000 people consider — let alone buy — the electric Mazda? I doubt it! But they'll read about it. (Granted, Tina's headline must have been part of the appeal, and I did think from the headline the car was going to be edible in some way.)


Republicans & Russia Face The Same Problem — And Are Thus Getting Desperate

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Republican Party has won the popular vote in a presidential election only one time since 1988. That's more than 30 years (or 7 elections) with just one popular vote win, which went to George W. Bush, possibly due to an Osama bin Laden video tape that came out 4 days before the election. In 2000, Bush won the electoral college (well, maybe*) despite the fact that Gore got more than half a million more votes. In 2016, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, but lost the electoral college vote (by fewer than 60,000 votes in key states)


Utility Adds 2.5 MW Of Demand Response Capabilities With Very Unusual “Batteries”

November 2nd, 2019 | by Scott Cooney

Hawaiian Electric (HECO) recently added 2.5MW of grid services to its grid, allowing it to store energy during peak solar and wind production periods, and did so without any traditional batteries, flywheels, or pumped hydro. Even better, the hardware required is very minimal, and in fact, most of it already exists in every residential grid in the world


Two Solar-Powered Teslas

November 1st, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

In late 2012, I went to the Miami International Auto Show and had my first experience in a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). My brother-in-law and I took a ride in a Fisker Karma inside the Miami Beach Convention Center. It was an amazing opportunity to experience the future of transport, as we glided silently through a short indoor track


Did Elon Musk Leave Twitter Because A Helpful, Popular Supporter Was Banned?

November 1st, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

When a voice is silenced, it becomes louder. Its final echoes turn into haunting screams that fill the night skies with its echoes of truth. The echoes resound inside the minds of those who seek to silence it. The ghost will never truly be put to rest until the truth has been exposed. The act of silencing a voice only makes it deafening. This is the case with the popular Twitter account @Tesla_Truth


Array Technologies Selected For One Of The Largest Bifacial Solar Projects In Australia

October 31st, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

Bifacial solar cells and panels are moving more seriously into play now thanks to cost drops and efficiency improvements. A bifacial solar panel is essentially a solar panel that can collect energy from the front side and the rear side (a normal monofacial panel only collects energy from one side). Array Technologies boosts that technology even further with solar tracking technology, capturing much more sunlight than a normal solar array
