Tesla may have to dismantle all of its solar panels out of more than 240 Walmart stores.

In case Walmart manages to sue Tesla, Musk’ company will have to pay damages due to the breach of contract, and more notably, it will dismantle all of its solar panels out of more than 240 Walmart stores.

It is likely that Tesla will rapidly take action, or even hit back against the retail corporation. At the time, it has made a great effort to recover its own solar business. In Quarter 2, its solar power capacity just attained 29MW while in the peak period, the number used to hit over 200MW. Obviously, Tesla doesn’t hope that it will bear any other damage or any bad publicity.
