Ten years after Elon Musk unveiled his master plan for Tesla (build an electric sports car, then use the money to fund an affordable version and make solar power work), he’s written a sequel. It’s a gleaming vision of a sustainable future, and one that’s best pictured at night.

While you sleep soundly in your futuristic, temperature-controlled room, your house will be running off solar power, quietly generated in the photovoltaic panel on your roof and stored in a high tech battery.
