Tesla will double the output of its powerwall no change in price

Tesla will double the output of its powerwall no change in price

Tesla Motors held its annual meeting at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. During his presentation, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Tesla announced that it will double the output of its powerwall, the storage system for homes, 7 kW to 5 kW peak and continuous value.

The best thing about this announcement is that Musk confirmed that the price will remain the same, $ 3,000 for the version of 7 kWh (daily cycle) and $ 3,500 for 10,000 kWh (weekly cycle). It significantly improves the offer for one of the energy storage devices has been news in recent months.

Tesla offers two versions of its battery system powerwall. The first 7 kWh is ready to be downloaded on a daily basis so that the user can take advantage of the photovoltaic installation on the roof or to manage the use, especially if you have a rather special electric bill. Another advantage would be to have several powerwall, but here the price would rise.

10 kWh the system serves as a backup system for certain circumstances such as the case of a blackout, even if the battery is designed to weekly cycles for 10 years.

Musk admitted that one of the biggest complaints was that a 2 kW continuous output is not sufficient for the needs of a user with your home. So you have heard these complaints and have adjusted supply about 5 kW.

Tesla hopes that this change will enable the general adoption of this type of energy storage at a level that helps users to be energy independent. Aside from having its great importance for certain companies that are reaching important agreements with Tesla to be equipped with this energy storage system that has surprised both friends and strangers.

Tesla says the batteries and solar point the way to a cheaper electricity in 10 years

Tesla says the batteries and solar point the way to a cheaper electricity in 10 years

Energy storage technology is one of the keys to popularize solar power generation and is the point at which the chief technology based Tesla to lecture about this type of clean energy.

JB Strauble, TCO Tesla, took voice at the conference to discuss the virtues of lithium-ion battery as the energy storage is vital for solar and wind power, as dusk falls over the horizon and the wind stops rising.

Energy storage projects need not always be paired with renewable energy. Certain operators in California and the eastern United States are buying these storage systems to improve the efficiency of their power grids.

Moreover Strauble kept that battery costs will fall faster than expected, and so will the demand for energy storage equipment, which will be on par with solar panels. The combination will create a cheaper electricity than current fossil fuels taken.

10 years is what gives Strauble to have cheap electricity to energy independence as seen above.

This prediction is based on Tesla’s own plans to create a factory-ion high capacity batteries in Nevada that will begin to produce these products for next year. The factory is designed to increase its production capacity to 50 g W hours annually by 2020, enough to make them work 500.00 Tesla cars.

Tesla is still on everyone’s lips since May unveiled two options as batteries for home , one for home and one for larger business facilities. The version for housing has been designed especially to fit snugly in the corner of a garage. Even as recently learned has increased the storage capacity for the same price.
