Tesla is known for being a car manufacturer and having their CEO Elon Musk be part of the SpaceX program. Some might not know that Tesla also offers solar panels for folks to purchase to save on energy. Of course, it’s not the easiest getting solar panels from Telsa to begin with, but that’s about to change as The Home Depot will be offering some of the companies renewable energy products.
The Home Depot will have 800 store locations selling products from Telsa to a wider range of the public who are planning on getting their house set up to save money and energy. At the moment, The Home Depot currently offers Tesla products at 110 locations including Southern California, while Las Vegas, Nevada, and Orlando, Florida stores will be getting them next week. These 800 locations will have their own Telsa show floor with actual Tesla energy specialists providing information to anyone who are looking to buy solar panels or Powerwall batteries. This will start in the first half of 2018, so keep a lookout to see if you’re Home Depot locations are going to be working with Telsa.
So far, only The Home Depot is going to be selling Telsa products since Lowe’s has stated that they do not have any plans on carrying products at this time. This will be a big step for both companies to make money and a bigger step for The Home Depot to get their feet wet in the renewable energy game. However, The Home Depot did use to sell SolarCity products until Telsa acquired them back in 2016 and changed the name to be sold under Tesla’s branding.
Since Tesla will be coming to 800 The Home Depot locations offering products that’ll be easier to get, do you plan on purchasing or looking into what Tesla offers for renewable energy products? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.Source: CNBC
