Tesla is about to find out just how much people are interested in solar. They are bringing their photovoltaic panels and Powerwall batteries to US retail giant Home Depot,

Matthew Townsend, reporting for Bloomberg:

Tesla Inc. is planning a major expansion of its solar division at Home Depot Inc., embarking on a critical test of the mainstream appeal of its renewable-energy products.

The tech pioneer, best known for its electric cars, is beginning to roll out Tesla-branded selling spaces at 800 of the retailer’s locations, the company confirmed to Bloomberg News. The areas, which will be outfitted during the first half of this year, are staffed by Tesla employees and can demonstrate its solar panels and Powerwall battery.
