Use solar for good.
We chose to focus our efforts on North Carolina after 100,000 roofs were destroyed during Hurricane Matthew.
The average solar home produces 20-40% extra energy than it can make use of. This excess energy is then sold back to the energy provider, but only for what it cost the home to produce the energy, so homeowners make nothing off the sale in the end. The energy companies then resale the energy for triple the price.
By creating a mutually beneficial trade, all of North Carolina receives new solar roofs for free, but in exchange, Tesla and SolarCity own the rights to the excess energy and do not have to purchase any of it back.
North Carolina is restored, and after just 3 years Tesla and SolarCity don't only break even on their costs of installing the roofs, but they start turning a never ending profit (for as long as the roofs last) for their part in restoring North Carolina.
With North Carolina's disaster relief fund significantly underfunded, we were able to restore all the roofs across the state without costing the taxpayers a single penny, were able to make Tesla and SolarCity money over the course of the trade, and we were able to help Tesla continue on its mission to "accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy."
