Coming to a Home Depot near you:

•, by: Edsel Cook

 Your local Home Depot store may soon feature a Tesla kiosk offering solar roof tiles that blend into your roof, at-home energy storage systems and other alternative energy products, reported a Daily Mail article.

Starting in the first half of this year, Tesla, Inc. will set up solar energy kiosks in selected Home Depot stores. These shops will sell solar tiles and high-capacity Powerwall batteries. The company's long-term goal is to establish a presence in 800 Home Depot stores across the U.S.

A similar partnership previously existed with Home Depot and the defunct alternative energy company SolarCity. Tesla acquired SolarCity in 2016 and later phased it out.

The planned kiosks will feature huge displays measuring 12 feet by 7 feet. In addition to showing off the solar roof tiles and Powerwall batteries sold at those small stores, the displays may also demonstrate the operation of Tesla solar power products.
