#Cleantech and #ClimateChange #Podcast – Tesla (NASADQ:
$TSLA) Charges the Market with Financial Results – Model Y ahead of Schedule
Point Roberts WA, Delta BC, January 31, 2020 –
Investorideas.com, a global news source and leading investor resource covering
cleantech and renewable energy stocks issues today’s edition of the Cleantech and Climate Change Podcast, talking about today's problems and solutions for the future.
Today we’re looking at how electric car maker Tesla
(NASDAQ:TSLA) charged up investors with their
financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2019.
Tesla shares closed yesterday, January 30th at $640.81+ $59.82 or
(+10.30%) on over 29 million shares and showed continued gains in the
$930M increase in our cash and cash equivalents in
Q4 to $6.3B
$1.0B operating cash flow less capex ("free
cash flow") in Q4
$359M GAAP operating income; 4.9% operating margin
$105M GAAP net income; $386M non-GAAP net income
(ex-SBC) in Q4
Model Y production ramp started in January 2020,
ahead of schedule
Increased Model Y all-wheel drive EPA range to 315
miles from 280 miles
Record vehicle deliveries of 112,095 in Q4
Record Q4 storage deployment of 530 MWh; 26% solar
“2019 was a turning point for Tesla. We
demonstrated strong organic demand for Model 3, returned to GAAP profitability
in 2H19 and generated $1.1B of free cash flow for the year. We achieved strong
cash generation through persistent cost control across the business.
Our pace of execution has also improved
significantly, as we have incorporated many learnings from our experience
launching Model 3 in the United States. As a result, we were able to start
Model 3 production in Gigafactory Shanghai in less than 10 months from breaking
ground and have already begun the production ramp for Model Y in Fremont. None
of this would be possible without strong demand for our products. For most of
2019, nearly all orders came from new buyers that did not hold a prior reservation,
demonstrating significant reach beyond those who showed early interest.
Amazingly, this was accomplished without any spend on advertising. As more
people drive our cars and as the industry rapidly validates electrification,
interest in our products will continue to grow. Higher volumes driven by Model
Y and Gigafactory Shanghai, continued improvements in operating leverage, and
further cost efficiencies should allow Tesla to ultimately reach an
industry-leading operating margin.”
Looking at their
energy storage, they reported:
“Energy Business Energy storage deployment reached
an all-time high of 530 MWh in Q4, which included the first deployments of
Megapack, our new commercialscale 3 MWh integrated storage system that is
preassembled at Gigafactory Nevada as a single unit. Since the introduction of
this product, the level of interest and orders from various global project
developers and utilities has surpassed our expectations.
In 2019, we deployed 1.65 GWh of energy storage,
more than we deployed in all prior years combined.
In Q4, we deployed 54 MW of solar, 26% more than in
the prior quarter. Where offered, subscription solar has grown significantly in
Q4. With a monthly subscription that can generate income from the first month
of usage, there is no reason not to have solar panels installed.”

#Solar #Stock News:
SinglePoint (OTCQB: $SING) Subsidiary Direct Solar America Kicks off New Year
with Multiple Sales Derived from Previously Announced Partnership with My Home
Phoenix, Arizona - January 28, 2020
(Investorideas.com Newswire) SinglePoint, Inc. (OTCQB: SING) is pleased to announce, subsidiary, Direct Solar America, has closed
its initial set of sales through the partnership agreement with My Home Group Real Estate, LLC., the #1 fastest
growing residential real estate brokerage in Arizona, the 2nd fastest in the
nation, and has been named, "A fastest growing company" by Inc 500,
five years in a row.
"We see this partnership being a major force
for new business and increased solar systems installed throughout the U.S.
through Direct Solar America. It is exciting to see the results start to come
through after ironing out the process and being able to train My Home Group
agents. As we continue to collaborate we believe this could more than double
the current output of Direct Solar Americas current residential
operations," states Greg Lambrecht, CEO of SinglePoint.
Direct Solar America manages the end-to-end solar
process for the consumer from finding the best and most affordable solar
option, simple financing options at competitive rates, and ensuring complete
installation satisfaction. Direct Solar of America safeguards the entire
process of installation, to deliver the easiest and most expedient experience
of switching to solar energy for the consumer when they need it, where they
need it, and at the best price.
With this new partnership, over 2300 My Home Group
Agents can provide alternative energy options for homeowners that are
eco-conscious, searching for cleaner and alternative energy solutions, looking
to reduce their reliance on the grid, and the search to reduce the burden of
higher and higher utility bills.
According to the U.S. Solar
Market Insight Report by the Solar Energy Industries Association
(SEIA), in Q1 2019, the U.S. solar market surpassed 2 million installations -
just three years after the market surpassed the 1 million installation
milestone. The industry is expected to hit 3 million installations in 2021 and
4 million installations in 2023. This is a result of increased demand by
consumers due to reduced installation costs as well as increasing environmental
awareness which is driving the adoption of cost-efficient alternative and
renewable forms of energy over conventional energy sources.
Direct Solar is a subsidiary of SinglePoint Inc, a
technology and acquisition company. (OTCQB: SING). Direct Solar America is a
solar energy brokerage with more than 3,500 home installations, which has
enabled residential solar customers to shop for options in order to find the
best option for the home. Like Rocket Mortgage or Lending Tree, Direct Solar
representatives provide homeowners with a variety of financing and service
providers; this has made the process of buying solar much easier for homeowners.
Direct Solar is operational in eight states and continues to expand its
residential solar footprint. Direct Solar Commercial serves customers that own
and/or manage commercial properties. Along with Direct Solar Capital, an
alternative energy financing solution, commercial projects have access to
$50,000 to $3 million in funding for solar installations.
My Home Group is in the business of building
businesses. Founded in 2005 by Jereme Kleven and Mark Hutchins with humble
beginnings, MHG has since given thousands of agents the platform to grow a real
business through a culture of accountability and a collaborative environment.
Today, MHG is the #1 fastest growing residential
real estate brokerage in Arizona, the 2nd fastest in the nation, and has been
named, "A fastest growing company" by Inc 500 five years in a row.
With over 13,000 transactions closed each month and upwards of 3 billion
dollars in commissions paid in the first quarter of 2018, MHG is slated to
dramatically change the industry as a whole. MHG has been featured in Inc 500,
Forbes, GQ Magazine, Business Journal, The Wall Street Journal, FOX News,
Inman, Realtor Magazine, and more.
