US electric carmaker Tesla Motors is planning to make a big investment in charging infrastructure throughout Japan.
Elon Musk, CEO of the company told the Nikkei in an interview that all the charging stations will be either directly or indirectly solar powered.
He said, "We'll buy utility power that's coming from solar panels, or we'll have solar panels on the charge station itself. There will be no impact to the electrical grid in Japan".
The much highly anticipated Tesla announcement scheduled for Thursday night raised the company's shares by 7%.
So far, very little details as to what Tesla CEO Elon Musk will announce are known to people, but still there are major clues available.
