Tesla exports most of its solar cells outside America

Most of Tesla's production from its subsidiary company, Solar City, is exported outside the United States and is not put up for sale in the local market, according to a document published by Reuters.

 

Analysts say this is due to the difficulty in marketing the Solar City products in the US domestic market, which are roofs with solar panels that generate electricity naturally.

 

This comes after Tesla's acquisition of Solar City for $2.6 billion in 2016 as the CEO, Elon Musk, was counting on promoting the product in the United States.

 

The two companies agreed to cooperate and partnership in 2016 on solar panels and roofs equipped with these cells.

 

Tesla planned to use the Americans' demand for solar panels, to put it above houses roofs in order to obtain clean electricity.

 

However, the American company sold few solar roofs in the domestic market so far, due to difficulties in the production line and bad marketing strategies.

 

According to data by the state of California, there are 21 systems of solar roofs were connected to electricity facilities in the state until the twenty-eighth of last February, and only dozens of systems in the rest of the United States.
