Tesla Solar Systems Ignite at Amazon's Warehouse in Redland, CA last June, and Seattle E-commerce Titan has confirmed there are no more plans to buy solar systems from Tesla.
The news first reported by Bloomberg follows a tumultuous week for Elon Musk's renewable energy and electric vehicle company. On Tuesday, Walmart filed a lawsuit against Tesla over solar panels, which have lit seven stores in recent years. Tesla and Valmart have been partners in clean energy initiatives for years; more than 240 Walmart stores have Tesla solar systems installed.
In his complaint, Walmart states that: "Tesla routinely had individuals to inspect solar systems that lacked basic solar training and knowledge."
In the suit, they also alleged that Tesla failed to properly grounded their solar and electrical systems and that installed Tesla solar panels on-site at Walmart stores contain a large number of defects that are visible to the naked eye and that Tesla would need to detect and repair before they caused the fires.
However, Walmart and Tesla said in a statement Thursday that they "look forward to dealing with all the problems and reloading Tesla's solar installations at Walmart stores after all parties are sure that all problems are have been addressed. "
It is unclear whether Amazon will extend Tesla with the same courtesy.
Amazon has confirmed that it has only a small number of solar systems installed by Tesla and has taken measures where these systems have been installed to protect both its workers and operations.
Tesla did not immediately return requests for comment.
The electric vehicle manufacturer is currently facing litigation to acquire SolarCity for $ 2.6 billion in 201
Gordon L. Johnson, Managing Director of The Vertical Group and Tesla Unshakable Bear, stated: "
" Two 737 Max jet aircraft went down with Boeing. Outside those? There were probably thousands of 737 Max jet flights that took off and landed safe, but fear of this potential made Boeing have to land all its planes. In my opinion, these rooftop solar fires create a potentially significant tailwind for Tesla and potentially serious legal obligations. "
His firm estimates that Tesla's obligations can range between 250 miles she and $ 1 billion, given Walmart's lawsuit and other lawsuits and complaints it expects will arise in Tesla's solar business after news of these fires.
