Tesla boosts Powerwall home battery capability from 2kW to 5kW

Tesla’s Powerwall is poised to be one of the biggest product launches ever, and the home battery has already sold out through 2016. The company is currently constructing the “Gigafactory” in Nevada, which will produce batteries for their cars, alongside the Powerwall and Powerpack systems, and Elon Musk reckons that when it’s complete it’ll be among the largest structures in the world. But that doesn’t mean that criticism of their game-changing technologies fall on deaf ears-according to GreenTech Media, Musk recently told shareholders that the capability of the Powerwall is going to be lifted from 2kW to 5kW, but the price will remain the same.
