The famous car company, Tesla Motors, offered to power usual homes with electrical batteries.
Tesla also announced a “very large” battery for bigger buildings. But that’s not a novelty, analogical technical devices already exist on the market, but it seems that Tesla has a trump in the sleeve, and promised to explain, why it’s products are better than one that other companies offer.
Batteries from other companies “suck”
– said Elon Musk, the CEO at Tesla in his letter to Jeff Evanson, the director of relations with the investors at Tesla Motors.
Musk wrote about the event in his Twitter in March not saying anything particular, only mentioning that the new Tesla’s product won’t be the electric car, for which Tesla is known all over the world. The announced product will be shown at Tesla’s Hawthorne in California at 8 p.m. on the 30th of April.
Tesla first mentioned about plans to release the home battery about a year ago. At the battery conference in 2014, Tesla shared some of the details of the future product. According to the early plans, the product series will consist of a 10 kWh battery for private buildings and a 400 kWh battery for large buildings.
At the start, Tesla started offering home batteries to some of the US households, and currently there are about 330 houses that are equipped with Tesla’s batteries, and most of them are located in California. The price of the battery will start from $13,000 and they are 3 ft high and 2,5 ft wide. They need to be placed at least on the 1,5 ft high above the ground and they can be controlled remotely, via the web-application or a smartphone application.
