Tesla Solar Inverter Added To Company Website

January 18th, 2021 | by Steve Hanley

Rooftop solar is great. It takes a part of your home that is used for nothing except keeping the rain and snow out and turns it into a place that generates electricity for you to use in your home or sell back to your local utility if local policies and rate structures permit. There is only one problem


Tesla Megapack, Powerpack, & Powerwall Battery Storage Prices Per kWh — Exclusive

October 5th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

We just pulled down an article about vanadium flow batteries versus lithium-ion batteries for long-duration energy storage because Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded, "This article is wildly incorrect about lithium battery costs by a factor of 5 or more presently & 10X long-term."

Our local utility notified us that a power outage with an 8-hour outage window spanning from 9am to 5pm was scheduled for June 3rd. For most people, in a non-pandemic world, that would not be a problem. People are normally at work during the day, so the outage passes by unnoticed


Tesla’s Next Frontier — The Tesla Home

July 26th, 2020 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

On the Tesla earnings call last Wednesday, July 22, Elon mentioned the renewable energy stack for the home. Tesla was focused on the big three: collection (solar), storage (Li-on batteries), and consumption (transport). These are indeed three defining parts of the renewable energy cycle for private persons
