This is not a long term theoretical issue that might happen...this is right now. Is it time to free the world from total grid dependence? I think this is the first step of many towards an efficient & dependable energy ecosystem. As highlighted in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Tesla demonstrated their reliability in a disaster & highlighted our current systems failures. With substantial growth of electrical power demands, this innovative technology will stablise, lower our carbon footprint & decrease peak load on the grid.
“Your next home could run on batteries. A combination of solar power & the rise of residential energy storage paves the way for a new kind of cable cutting” and Tesla could play a major role in it. It turns out that batteries coupled with solar power could completely transform the energy sector. It’s a bet Elon Musk is willing to make and it’s one reason Tesla is changing the way we think about energy.
