Tesla says it will spend $2 billion to build solar farm in California

Tesla says a $2.8 billion solar energy farm will be built in the southern part of the state of California, according to an investor presentation to be presented Monday.

The announcement comes as Tesla and its partners are under fire for a series of missteps, including charging the price of its Model S sedan in a few states and refusing to sell its vehicle to customers who can’t pay for them.
