On hearing the news, Jigar Shah, the well-known clean energy entrepreneur and co-founder of SunEdison, now leading specialist finance company Generate Capital, posted that he had already predicted a “Tesla 2.0”. He also pointed to a blog of his in which he suggested that Tesla’s planned takeover of major residential solar installer SolarCity could help Musk create a company that is more valuable than Apple in the future. This would be achieved through the company's new ability to integrate Electric Vehicles (EV), storage, efficiency, demand response, and solar capabilities.
