Tesla Inc.’s solar deployments fell by 48% as import challenges held up deliveries of some components.

The electric automaker deployed 48 megawatts of solar in the first quarter, it said Wednesday. That’s down from 92 megawatts in the same period a year earlier and 85 megawatts in the fourth quarter.
