Tesla to make batteries for your home

Elon Musk says Tesla will unveil a new kind of battery to power your home:

According to Musk, the company is working on a consumer battery pack for the home. Design of the battery is apparently complete, and production could begin in six months. Tesla is still deciding on a date for unveiling the new unit, but Musk said he was pleased with the result, calling the pack “really great” and voicing his excitement for the project.

Let’s hope this means that I can put solar panels on my summer home next year.
