Tesla’s Latest Moves In Solar Indicates It Is Either Crazy Or Has Made A Breakthrough

July 20th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

Tesla's innovations in solar are not recognized by either Wall Street or even most Tesla followers as a success. The story peddled by many who don't want Tesla to succeed (the short sellers and those about to be disrupted, but I repeat myself) is that Tesla only bought SolarCity to bail out Elon Musk's cousin's Peter and Lyndon Rive, who had cofounded the company


Tesla’s Secret Weapon Is Fueled By The Sun

February 24th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla's secret weapon is something that many investors don't even think to consider when they think of Tesla. CNN Business reminded us that investors only think about EVs when they think about Tesla. However, Tesla's secret weapon is fueled by the same thing life on Earth is — our sun

Tesla is helping Australian bushfire victims with its part in the collective efforts alongside 5B, a solar provider in Sydney, and Mike Cannon-Brooks, the founder of Atlassian.

February 6th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla is a tech company, not just a car company. Although, some still seem to believe otherwise. Joel Feder sparked a debate on Twitter by voicing his thoughts about Tesla. In his tweet, he says, "Reminder: Tesla is a car company. Tesla is not a tech company. It builds cars."

January 26th, 2020 | by Kyle Field

The Tesla Solarglass Roof finally makes solar beautiful and easy to look at for folks who don't appreciate the look of conventional solar panels. I for one love solar and have always enjoyed the look of solar panels on a roof, but I also think the Solarglass roof tiles are more beautiful, more functional, and more durable than most traditional roofing surfaces


Tesla Cuts Prices Of Solar Systems To Counter Drop In Federal Rebate

January 21st, 2020 | by Kyle Field

Ringing in 2020 brought many changes to the US solar industry, including a drop in the US federal incentive for residential solar systems. The tax credit fell from 30 percent of the solar system cost to 26 percent effective January 1st, 2020. This first step-down in the tax credit is a small piece of recognition for just how much the financials for solar have improved over the last 10 years

(Tesla is currently almost exactly the market cap of Ford and GM combined, around $88 billion.) Even though I would now plant myself firmly in the "bull" camp, this is completely untrue, and I think it paints a problematic picture of Tesla

2020 Tesla Predictions

January 2nd, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Starting from this year onwards, I will place my predictions for the next 12 months in article form. Most of these predictions are based on historical facts or behavioural economics, and I would be happy if I am 50% correct by end of next year.
