I almost hate to even post this, as there have been a slew of - but Apple, but Google/Alphabet....speculations over the years - but here I go anyway. - Google has been a player many times in purchasing Solar City debt $280 million here $750 million there. SolarCity Creates Fund to Finance $750 Million in Residential Solar Projects with Investment from Google | SolarCity - They have rolled out an online Solar estimator and have acquired Nest to move toward "smart houses". Google closes $3.2 billion purchase of Nest Project Sunroof - They are 10% owners of SpaceX. -There are close ties among the executives. The SCTY acquisition may finally be the venue for an Alphabet/Tesla Energy partnership. This wouldn't be "rescue capital", the earnings call yesterday dispelled that. It would be a true partnership with Tesla/SCTY providing the hardware (Powerwall, solar roof, rack system) and Google providing some of the client facing structure (Roof estimator, Nest coordination, Smart House) and some of the financing. Been nagging at me, so I wanted to get it out there and see if it has any legs. Cheers.
