This isn’t the first time we have heard of Tesla being involved in a new power storage system that can be used at home. However, their new partnership with Solar City may offer some new improvements that should help out solar-powered vehicles would need especially when their batteries run low.
Apparently the new solar power storage system aims to fend off the usual reliance from electric grids. To date, most solar systems are turned off when the electric grids are off. This means that even the solar panels are out even when the sun is out and spreading the rays that are normally the source of powering them up.
With the new lithium-ion battery pack all this may be resolved.
Through their partnership with SolarCity, a California-based company who provide solar panel lease options and full service installation in 12 states, Tesla hopes to provide a rack of these lithium-ion batteries which can be easily hooked up to SolarCity’s arrays of photovoltaic panels for a fully off-the-grid system.
