Tesla chief executive lays out plan for combination of Tesla and SolarCity
MarketWatch‘s Jeremy Owens reports Tesla Motors Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk doesn’t want to stop with electric cars: “He sees a future with heavy electric trucks and buses, as well as autonomous electric car-sharing networks, all powered by solar energy.”
That is the vision Musk laid out, part of a push by the car maker’s leader for the acquisition of SolarCity, a residential solar-power company in which Musk is heavily invested. In a recent blog post, which Musk had been teasing for more than a week on Twitter, he said that solar-power generation captured by Tesla’s Powerwall batteries is key to his vision for the future of Tesla.

• While doing above, also provide zero emission electric power generation options.
