Tesla Inc. is seeking to sell electricity directly to customers in Texas, according to a new report.

Texas Monthly reported Thursday that a Tesla

subsidiary earlier this month filed an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to sell power on the retail market. Tesla reportedly told state regulators it intends to build two giant, 250-megawatt batteries, one at its factory under construction near Austin, and the other outside Houston.
