Something just hit me today. Musk is touting the savings of acquiring new Solar customers as one of the biggest benefits of this merger, but is it possible that both companies might benefit from this? Right now, in Texas, customers who come to a TeslaMotors Gallery can't learn anything about the car. Employees aren't allowed to give pricing or even direct potential customers to the website so they can purchase. They are only allowed to talk about the underlying technology in the cars and talk generally about the company. I think they can also discuss things like superchargers, charging in general, etc. With Tesla Energy, though, Tesla should be able to direct people to the website to purchase solar panels/power walls. They could even conceivably open up a "Tesla Store" in states that prohibit even modest galleries for Vehicles. They could talk about solar panels and direct people to the website for more info. They could talk about discounts/incentives offered for customers who purchase solar panels. This might be a brilliant marketing move by the Tesla Motors team.
