Dogs are not the only things Tesla may be setting on fire.

“As of November 2018, no fewer than seven Walmart stores had experienced fires due to Tesla’s solar systems - including the four fires described above and three others that had occurred earlier….”

Walmart claimed, among myriad complaints, that “Tesla routinely deployed individuals to inspect the solar systems who lacked basic solar training and knowledge.” In the suit, they also alleged that Tesla failed to ground its solar and electrical systems properly, and that Tesla-installed solar panels on-site at Walmart stores contained a high number of defects that were visible to the naked eye, and which Tesla should have found and repaired before they led to fires.
