The average American household consumes 911 kWh of electricity each month, and fluctuating utility rates make some of that energy cost much more than the rest. One company is launching a device that seeks to eliminate those cost spikes. Orison’s home battery system stores electricity when rates are low, so it can be used later to avoid paying the higher rates. Best of all, this new system requires no installation like other home battery setups; you just plug it in and away you go.

Comments Off on Tesla’s Powerwall home battery is already sold out through 2016

Only a week has gone by since Elon Musk announced Tesla’s new, much-hyped Powerwall home battery on April 30, and the company is reporting that they’ve already sold out of their batteries through mid-2016, booking 800 million in revenue, according to Bloomberg . On an investor earnings call on May 6th, Musk reported that the demand is so high for their batteries that in the past 7 days alone they’ve taken already reservations for 38,000 home batteries and 2500 of the larger commercial scale batteries intended for industry. Musk says that this means that Tesla will have to expand the current Gigafactory that is under construction or build another one, as the originally-planned 5-million-square-foot battery factory they’re working on will not be big enough. According to Musk, the production of batteries alone will easily consume the entire capacity of the $5 billion, 50 GWh Gigafactory in Nevada, which is slated to open next year.
