Tesla announced that it has completed over 500,000 Solar Panel and Solar Roof installations. This number of deployments is equal to ~4 GW of clean energy, which can power about 3 million homes.
Energy independence is very valuable, as any owner of Tesla or any other manufacturer's solar systems knows. You are not dependent on the power grid of the state and have access to electricity in almost any circumstance. However, you get energy for free, and in some states you can also get a reward if you sell your energy back to the grid. A side, but extremely pleasant, benefit of this is that you use renewable energy, which means you do not harm the environment.
Tesla is actively developing in the energy market, offering its customers solar panels, solar roofs, home energy storage systems—Powerwall—and utility energy storage systems—Megapack. All of its products are in high demand. Tesla is constantly increasing their production, but still has a backlog in fulfilling orders, which only emphasizes the consciousness of people and their desire for energy independence.
On Monday, Tesla announced a major milestone: the installation of more than 500,000 Solar panels and Solar Roofs. This number of installations is equivalent to about 4 GW of clean energy, which is huge. 4 GW of electricity can power about 3,000,000 homes.

As of the end of 2021, Tesla had produced more than 25.0 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity without emissions and continues to increase this figure. This amount of energy produced is more than the total energy Tesla has used to run all its factories since it began producing Model S in 2012 and the electricity used to power all of its vehicles in that same period combined.
