    April 29 (Reuters) - U.S. electric carmaker Tesla Motors(TSLA) plans to make a big investment in charging infrastructure throughout Japan, the company's CEO
    Elon Musk told the Nikkei in an interview.All the charging stations will be either directly or indirectly solar powered, Musk told the daily.

    "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," Musk said in the interview. (Reporting By

    While Mr. Abe, the PM of Japan visiting the States and meeting with Elon at Tesla today, there were some nice information coming out of these EM interviews. Haven't heard of any real plans though.

    Especially it sounds extremely difficult to use solar panels as Tesla seems to be struggling to have the landowners to agree on Supercharger stations... (Land cost at rural places too high here)

    Love it. A direct shot at Toyota by Elon, refuting Toyota's contention that large numbers of EVs charging will overwhelm the electric grid.
