SolarCity products would be offered under the Tesla brand, and customers will be able to purchase them in Tesla stores.

"We are pleased to submit to you and the SolarCity board of directors a proposal to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of SolarCity in exchange for Tesla common shares," the company wrote in a letter announcing the proposed deal. Rather than paying cash, Tesla is offering a stock-swap deal at a premium of about 21 to 30 percent over the price of SolarCity's shares. The deal values SolarCity at up to $2.8 billion.

 Shareholders from both companies still need to vote on the deal.  Read more on this stock-swap deal here.
