Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock shows moves up of 2.20% and traded at a price of $347.32 in preceding trading session.

U.S. solar companies Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) and SunrunInc (RUN.O) on Monday said they would resume selling rooftop panels in Nevada because legislators passed a bill reinstating a policy the state had abandoned 18 months ago.

Assembly Bill 405, which supporters say they expect Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval to sign in coming days, would require electric utilities to purchase excess power generated from their consumers’ rooftop solar installations at near the full retail rate. That rate will step down gradually as more and more households go solar.

Officials in Sandoval’s office could not immediately be reached for comment. Known as net metering, the buy-back policy is critical to making residential solar affordable by giving solar owners credit on their bills for energy they produce but do not use. Nevada’s Public Utilities Commission scrapped its previous net metering policy at the end of 2015, moving households with solar panels to a far less advantageous rate structure for power sold back to the utility.

The move, which prompted Tesla’s subsidiary, SolarCity, and rival SunrunInc (RUN) to stop doing business in the state, was unpopular with Nevada residents. Solar installation jobs fell 32 percent in 2016 in Nevada. On Monday, both Tesla and Sunrun said they would return to Nevada once the bill was signed. Opponents of net metering argue that forcing utilities to pay high rates for rooftop solar in effect means that consumers who do not have solar panels subsidize those who do.

Its 52-week range quite noticeable, lower range was $94.92% and hit highest level of $0.71%. The overall volume in the last trading session was 6.77 Million shares. The liquidity position of firm is on noticeable level, as its current ratio was calculated as 1.10 at the same time as its debt to equity ratio stands at 1.64.

Shares of General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) at the time when day-trade ended the stock finally eased up 0.03% to close at $34.46. Greenlight Capital’s plan to split up General Motors Co’s (GM.N) stock, as well as its challenge to the company’s board of directors, will come to a head on Tuesday, as the U.S. automaker’s shareholders cast their votes on the hedge fund’s proposals. Greenlight’s proxy contest comes during a major overhaul at GM as Chief Executive Mary Barra seeks to jolt the company’s lagging stock price and sales by slashing costs and refocusing on the most profitable markets.

In the latest sign of the challenges facing major auto makers, rival Ford Motor Co (F.N) last month replaced CEO Mark Fields with Jim Hackett, a reformist executive who had run one of its divisions, following a decline in the company’s North American profits and share price.

At GM’s annual shareholder meeting, shareholders will vote on Greenlight’s plan to divide GM shares into two classes, which the fund’s founder David Einhorn said in March could boost the automaker’s $52 billion market capitalization by as much as $38 billion.

The volatility tends to amount of risk or uncertainty about size of changes in a security’s value; a higher volatility denotes that a security’s value can potentially be spread out over a larger range of values.
