Elon Musk the CEO and owner of Tesla said this “Our goal is to fundamentally change the way the world uses energy, which sounds crazy” This isn’t the first time Musk has sounded crazy.

The new home battery is called Powerwall and the new business/office battery is called the Powerpack. Both products are completely sustainable and carbon free. The Powerwall is 3 feet across 4 feet tall and 6 inches deep. It comes with a 10 year warranty The Powerwall increases capacity for homes that use solar energy in addition to serving as an emergency battery in a power outage. The device is connected to the internet so it will be in constant contact with Tesla Energy’s servers and will always be monitored. Their not slated to come out until late next summer.

Tesla’s selling price to installers is $3500 for 10kWh and $3000 for 7kWh. “We’re working with certified installers for the Powerwall,” Musk said. “It’s designed to be easy to install, with two people in maybe a half an hour to an hour.” By pulling homes and businesses off the grid during peak hours, America’s electrical infrastructure would see greater stability. With enough people on board we’d likely see fewer brownouts in our cities.Another attractive part for consumers is that this kind of battery will give homeowners complete energy independence, allowing them to sever connections to utility companies. One thing is for sure is that the new Tesla battery will undoubtedly take away from nuclear and coal energy which is better for consumers and especially the environment. TatWza will definitely want to cop one for his crib.
