Fox News has learned that Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook will all be open to the idea of partnering up to develop and sell their own battery powered candles and other devices that use the energy generated by their own solar panels.
The Wall Street Journal first reported the news of the partnership in August.
The partnership would be a major shift in the industry and a major blow to Tesla and other battery powered competitors, who are working to develop their own batteries.
The Journal’s report was later pulled by the company.
Google announced a partnership with Chinese battery maker Huawei earlier this month.
It is expected to launch a similar solar powered candle at the IFA tech conference in September.
Apple has said its new SolarPower system will use solar energy to generate electricity.
The company is expected launch a solar powered battery-powered battery powered candle in 2019.
