Walmart sues Tesla for faulty solar panels

Walmart is suing Tesla for negligence as Tesla’s solar panels went up in flames on its store rooftops. Fires broke out at 7 Walmart store rooftops between 2012 and 2018, causing millions of dollars in damage. Inspections found that several of Tesla’s solar panels were broken and that wires were hanging out, causing a fire hazard.

It's almost like Teslas quality control is crap.

Friend of mine had issues with the Solar City panels on her house--mainly leaking roof post-install. Will be curious what she vcd thinks about this suit.

Tesla doesn't make solar panels, Solar City does. Solar panels don't cause fires, feedback from bad installation does. Sue the installer, and learn to report accurate news.

Is it possible that someone was stealing wiring from them? Maybe stealing certain components?
