So bad ass...



I'm just going to park my battery powered car in the garage of my battery powered home. It's a cool time to be alive.

As the price of solar power has dropped to levels rivaling coal, the new issue has become storage. A couple years ago, Hawaii was generating so much solar power it had to halt production because it was putting their grid at risk. Powerwall and Powerpack help address the load shifting issues that solar has suffered from.

Elon's analogy of moving from landlines to cell phones was a really good one. Batteries this capable will let people, businesses, and entire communities operate without the need to be tethered to a massive power grid. This is huge.

@adamsigel Hope to see it working like a global energy network... Would be great if someone can use energy stored on my Powerwall and I earn credits to use someone's energy, as an efficient smart shared grid.

@rodrigoprior that's an excellent idea.

@rodrigoprior Some regulatory hurdles to clear w/r/t buying and selling energy—would you settle for knowing you were always paying the lowest $ for any energy you pulled in from the grid?

@adamsigel It seems fair enough, but people always expect to get more ;-)
