Tesla is putting up more tents in Fremont, this time to cover its solar test houses, According to the newly granted building permits, attached below.
This time they’re “canopy covers” over their solar test structures, according to the above newly issued building permits reviewed by CNBC.
Tesla started taking orders for version 3 of its solar roof tiles, now known as the Solarglass Roof, in October, with CEO Elon Musk saying at the time that some installations were already underway.
Musk said in October that Tesla had the goal of getting to 1,000 solar roofs installed per week as quickly as possible, acknowledging that the company would not be producing the Solarglass roof at that rate for at least several months.
Placing canopies over the solar test structures in Fremont should help Tesla evade prying eyes and conduct its research and development without rain delays. The permits say the tents will be removed in two months.
