Tesla submitted the proposal to lower the energy bill: why stop homes and businesses rely entirely on electric power. A battery line, which can be powered with solar panels, and is designed to store and consume electricity in homes and small businesses.
Tesla Energy is a set of batteries for homes, businesses and public services that promote clean energy ecosystem. Elon Musk Tesla CEO says that this transition is not impossible, “We have done similar things in the past.” He also noted that this will benefit the poorest communities or in remote areas.
But the autonomy of these batteries, come in summer to the US, is still very limited, about two hours with the home use that’s fully operational.
“Our aim is to totally transform the world’s energy infrastructure to be fully sustainable and without producing carbon emissions,” Musk said.
Tesla powerwall is a lithium-ion battery and is designed to be fixed to the wall of a house or garage and is equipped with photovoltaic panels completely independent from traditional energy systems. It also supports high and low temperatures so it can be installed anywhere at any time of year. The battery can be used in case of power failure or, for example, when consumption peaks are higher, so that would mean bigger savings on the bill. In addition, you can store solar energy during the day for use at night.
The cost of these will be $ 3,500 and will go on sale in the US in the summer of this year and in the world by 2016, although you can start pre-ordering. The price does not include installation or the cost of solar panels, but will be connected to the Internet, so Tesla Energy will constantly be monitoring their use.
The battery could play “similar to the way mobile phones have replaced paper landlines,” said Musk for which powerwall “will be a big step for the poorest communities of the world” because “it eliminates the need for electrical networks” .
“We want to change the way the world uses energy,” he said the inventor turned entrepreneur, in which many see a successor to Steve Jobs.
