Walmart sues Tesla over fires at seven stores

Solar panels had been installed in more than 240 Walmart stores with Tesla taking responsibility for maintaining the equipment Walmart said N.J. homeowners will soon be able rent solar panels from Tesla

"To state the obvious, properly designed, installed, inspected and maintained solar systems do not spontaneously combust", the court documents claim. Walmart has filed a lawsuit against Tesla in the New York State Supreme Court for breach of contract citing Tesla's negligence and failure to meet industry standards.

Tesla did not immediately respond to an email. In the court documents, Walmart said ignoring the alert reveals "Tesla's utter incompetence or callousness, or both".

The lawsuit is the latest blow to Tesla's struggling solar business, which it acquired through its $2.6 billion purchase of SolarCity in 2016.

The world's largest retailer started using solar panels made by SolarCity in 2010 and the roofs of around 240 of its stores were fitted with solar panels made by the company.

U.S. supermarket chain Walmart is suing Tesla over a series of solar panel fires it says were the result of the company's negligence. One of the fires happened months after the system was de-energized, Walmart said.

MLS awards expansion franchise to St. Louis
While this decision has been rumoured for some time, it is still an exciting moment, both for the MLS community and that in St. Kindle Betz is the granddaughter of rental auto magnate Jack Taylor and the president of the Enterprise Holdings Foundation.

Walmart claims that the incidents were linked, and that they were all a result of "widespread negligence" on behalf of Tesla and its employees. The third occurred eight days later in Indio, California, costing the company a combined $8 million in repairs, merchandise and other costs, the court papers claim.

The lawsuit claims Tesla has yet to offer a "complete set of final root cause analyses" of the key factors behind the string of fires.

Walmart is pushing to source 35% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. In October, the retailer signed a deal with SunPower Corp. for installation of solar systems at 19 stores and two distribution centers in IL.

Some investors rejected the notion of Tesla acquiring SolarCity and Walmart's lawsuit may add some fuel to the fire. After the last of the three, another California blaze in May 2018, Walmart asked Tesla to disconnect all rooftop solar systems.

A new lawsuit from the U.S. retail colossus demands damages from Tesla and the removal of solar panels across all store locations, amid claims that "systemic, widespread failures" by Tesla were the culprit of a series of rooftop blazes over the past decade. As of August 15, Tesla "still had not taken any reasonable steps toward curing its breaches", the lawsuit said.
