Tesla unveils its new low-cost Powerwall battery solution for homes and businesses that runs entirely from solar energy. The batteries are revolutionizing home solar energy with the new powerwall that comes in a home battery or a commercial battery for business storage:
Tesla’s business / commercial solar battery will come in a 10kWh version that will sell for $3,500 and serves as a back-up application
Tesla’s home solar battery will come in a 7kWh version that will sell for $3,000 and serves as a daily cycle application
The latter unit will work when utilized with a solar PV system and the larger unit will help serve as a backup if power grids go down.
