    Terrible experience selling house with SolarCity/Tesla Energy panel lease on it

    You're right, it started making sense to purchase the inherited PPA outright starting a couple years ago but doesn't save me any money, just sense of control that comes with "taking back" my roof. At this point it is a wash whether I purchase now or right before selling the house (which won't...

    You thoughts on becoming Teslanaires buying shares post S&P500 inclusion?

    Doesn't sound like you watched the interview. Actually tells you what he'll live on and describes his level of financial security. Quite an entertaining video overall.

    Terrible experience selling house with SolarCity/Tesla Energy panel lease on it

    I've a Sunrun PPA that I inherited from the previous owner. Signover was straightforward in 2013. I've been plotting some way to get out of the PPA since. Is there REALLY no way?

    Recently produced Model X batteries

    Why doesn't Tesla "just" redesign the whole heating/cooling system to include octovalve for Model X so it too can get some next level efficiency going?

    Recently produced Model X batteries

    Have models 3 and Y batteries gotten into S/X yet? Also, would it be out of the realm of possibility that either octovalve or superbottle made it to the S/X by now?

    I'm skeptical: financial viability of Tesla-exclusive rideshare service

    I'm skeptical: financial viability of Tesla-exclusive rideshare service

    Nice discussion, my reference to Cathie Woods of Ark Invest is to bring up their advocacy for a "beta version" of the Tesla network to be launched right now before L5 autonomy is achieved. They describe a non-autonomous network to compete with Uber and Lyft, isolated to large metro areas in CA...

    I'm skeptical: financial viability of Tesla-exclusive rideshare service

    Time to revive this discussion methinks, with Elon tweeting about it a while back and Cathie Woods evangelizing for it, I'd like to hear member discussion on this subject.
