Tesla makes next to cars already the Power Wall System that allows consumers at home can store renewable energy. By acquiring SolarCity could offer the required solar panels the company himself.
Tesla has a bid of 26.50 to $ 28.50 per share issued . This brings the total to an amount between 2.6 and 2.8 billion dollars. Which amounts to about 2.5 billion euros. Shareholders must still approve the acquisition. Elon Musk is itself the largest shareholder of both companies, but will abstain from voting.
SolarCity was founded in 2006 by Peter and Lyndon Rive, cousins of Elon Musk. Musk himself is chairman of the company.
