Solar System + Tesla Powerwall Giveaway In New Zealand

Those living in New Zealand who want one of Tesla’s Powerwall energy storage battery pack offerings, but don’t want to spend the cash, may be happy to know that that there’s currently a giveaway underway that’s possibly worth a look.

One of Tesla’s new sales partners for the energy storage offerings, Vector, is going to be giving away 130 completely free 3 kilowatt (kW) solar energy systems paired together with Tesla’s Powerwall battery pack offering. The giveaway is already well underway, though, so those interested should probably get a move on, or you’ll miss the opportunity.

Electrek provides a bit more information:

Soon after Tesla unveiled its series of energy storage products in April, Vector announced a partnership with the Silicon Valley car manufacturer to make the new products available in New Zealand. This new initiative appears to be the first deployment of energy storage capacity under the new Vector-Tesla partnership.

Anyone can go to Vector’s website to enter the contest or nominate a deserving individual, family, community group, marae or school. People will vote on who they think should receive a solar installation and a Tesla battery pack. 100 individuals or families and 30 schools will get the systems.

Probably worth noting here is the fact that Vector will possess ownership of the systems for a decade after installation occurs — after that period of time, ownership of the system will then be passed to the giveaway winners.

For those interested, here’s Vector’s website, which has eligibility details and further information.
