Tesla has long been a household name, and with each passing week they seems to be breaking records and setting new standards. Led by Elon Musk, Tesla installed 530 MWh of energy storage in the fourth quarter of 2019, beating the third quarter’s number of 477 MWh. In addition, they installed 54 MW of solar in the fourth quarter, which was a 26% gain from the third quarter’s installation of 43 MW. Much of the success is due to California’s home solar mandate, “which requires rooftop solar photovoltaic systems to be equipped on all new homes built on January 1, 2020 and beyond.” The mandate is the first of its kind in the United States and is paving the way to a cleaner energy future.
Along with breaking records in solar and energy storage, Tesla also delivered 112,000 vehicles in Q4 2019, beating Q3’s record of 97,000 and have expanded their Shanghai Gigafactory due to the increasing demand for their vehicles.
