Amazon Joins Walmart in Saying Tesla Solar Panels Caught Fire

AMZN WMT +1 more AMZN WMT TSLA

(Bloomberg) -- Walmart Inc. isn’t the only corporation that has seen its Tesla Inc. solar panels catch fire. On Friday, Amazon.com Inc. said a June 2018 blaze on the roof of one of its warehouses in Redlands, California, involved a solar panel system that Tesla’s SolarCity division had installed. News of the Amazon fire comes just three days after Walmart dropped a bombshell lawsuit against Tesla, accusing it of shoddy panel installations that led to fires at more than a half-dozen stores. More widely known for its electric cars, Tesla bought panel installer SolarCity three years ago in a $2 billion deal that proved highly controversial. SolarCity’s chief executive officer at the time is the cousin of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Walmart, Tesla look to address issues surrounding solar systems

WMT TSLA

(Reuters) - Walmart Inc <WMT.N> and Tesla Inc <TSLA.O> are looking to address all issues surrounding the solar installations at Walmart stores, the companies said late on Thursday, two days after the retailer sued the electric carmaker for "widespread negligence" that led to repeated fires at the installations. The companies also said they were looking to "re-energizing Tesla solar installations at Walmart stores, once all parties are certain that all concerns have been addressed." "Above all else, both companies want each and every system to operate reliably, efficiently, and safely," the companies said in a brief joint statement. In the lawsuit, Walmart accused Tesla of having untrained workers putting up shoddy installations and showing "utter incompetence or callousness, or both," and asked for the removal of solar panels from more than 240 of Walmart's U.S. stores.

The retailer says it will gut the store, adding new flooring, fixtures and merchandise, a process that is expected to take three or four months. The location could reopen in November or December ahead of the holidays. Since a lone gunman opened fire in the store on Aug. 3, Walmart executives have visited El Paso and the company has talked with employees and community leaders about the future of the store, which employs about 400 people. About 93% of the store employees have found work at other Walmart locations. Others have said they need more time to process the events before returning to their jobs.

THOMASTON — A Walmart store just off Route 1 in Thomaston closed a few hours early Wednesday after police received a warning that a man had posted a video online saying he was going to the store with a gun. Hoppe said Rockland police and the FBI are assisting in the investigation. He said more information will be released once the suspect is apprehended.
