The PowerWall will replace “noisy, dirty fossil-fuel generators with zero-emission storage technology,” according to SolarCity. The battery will offer back-up power when the grid suffers an outage. Musk is chairman of SolarCity and CEO of Tesla Motors, which developed the PowerWall technology, write Louise Downing and Ehren Goossens for Bloomberg.

Tesla moves into the home

Musk wants to expand the reach of alternative energy technology beyond electric cars and into the home. The Tesla battery is able to store power when the grid is at peak production, before dispensing it later. It costs less than half as much as current systems, claims SolarCity.
