Tesla has finally unveiled Tesla Energy, its aspirational power bank system aimed for homes, businesses, and even utilities. The Tesla Power Wall is a genius idea for developing nations since it’s solar-powered and will mainly be used in a home battery systems. The Power wall will come in a 10 kWh version for $3,500 (UGX 10 million), or a 7 kWh model for $3,000 (UGX 9 million), this obviously excludes installation and the inverter cost.
The unit is about a meter in size and six inches thick, and comes with integrated heat management and can fit either on the inside or outside of the wall of your home. As expected, it will be connected to the internet — Telsa CEO, Elon Musk said that the system can be used to create “smart microgrids” — you can watch his 18 minute keynote speech below.
The company also announced another heavy-duty power bank called the Powerpack — and it’s where things get really interestingly bazaar. Elon Musk called it an “infinitely scalable system” that can work for businesses, in industrial applications, and even public utility companies, that comes in 100 kWh battery blocks that can scale from 500 kWH all the way up to 10 MWh and higher. Tesla aims to change the way the world uses energy at an extreme scale.
