Walmart, Tesla look to address issues surrounding solar systems

Walmart Inc (WMT.N) and Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) are looking to solve all issues related to 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 sure 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 short joint statement.

In the lawsuit, Walmart accused Tesla of having untrained workers putting up inferior 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.
