Rahul Gandhi Visits Tesla, Solar Research Facility In California:- Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi (47) to understand the implications of renewable and clean energy for India, has visited US-based electric car major Tesla and a solar research centre in California.
Gandhi spent several hours at Sun Power and sought information on its advantages and disadvantages. “The idea (behind visiting the center) was to really understand implications (of solar power) in India,” senior Congress leader Sam Pitroda, who accompanied Gandhi, said after his visit to Sun Power’s research centre in the Silicon Valley.
SunPower Corporation is an American energy company that designs and manufactures crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells and solar panels. In addition, Gandhi also visited the Tesla factory in Fremont in California on Tuesday.
Based in Palo Alto in California, Tesla is an American automaker, energy storage company, and solar panel manufacturer. The company specializes in electric cars, lithium-ion battery energy storage and solar panels.
Gandhi flew to Los Angeles after his visit. He is scheduled to interact with members of the think- tank community and local leaders there.
