Two of Elon Musk's projects are about to become one, as Tesla's shareholders have "overwhelmingly approved" the proposed acquisition of SolarCity, CNBC reports. Having already gained the approval of SolarCity's shareholders, the deal is expected to be finalized in short order.

Musk is also chairman of SolarCity's board, but recused himself from the merger votes on both sides, given the circumstances.
