Price has been announced via Twitter: $250/kWh at the pack level for systems over 100MWh.
Thanks to those who commented.

Author Ray F ( ago)
Great videos as always, but can you please disclose how many shares you have in Tesla? It would help to weigh the degrees of bias. Thanks.

Author NickK ( ago)
Even more serious, I saw this Kickstarter that did it without batteries. Light Energy it was called, you should check it out :-). Energy transition at its best.

"Batteries not included"

Author Laughing Ass Farms ( ago)
The only problem i see is the fact the panels are not encoprorated into roofs so that the panels blend in rather than take up space else where.

Author Ferdinand Adlawan ( ago)
I know this may be off topic in the video above, Dagogo, what's with Coldfustion and Coldfusion? Thanks

Author Jared Hohman ( ago)
It works in Hawaii because power is normally $0.30/KWH, 3-5x what most people pay. If you had free power to charge batteries, it would still cost more to use batteries. Solar can be done for ~$0.06/kwh. So at best this is a last resort backup (instead of cheaper backup plants...), or to help with wind/solar smoothing, in either case, they aren't primary source of power. Renewables don't have enough penetration yet for it to be an issue for 99% of the world yet Batteries just aren't cheap enough yet for it to be actually practical in 95% of the world as a primary power, you need to generate the power first. Batteries for primary power would last 1-2 years, solar panels last 30 years, 0 maintenance, wind turbines last a long time, but need a little maintenance.

Tesla's version of a battery backup. not impressed.

Author David pena ( ago)
Expectation for mass production and vertical integration for the gigafactory are often overblown. mass production is limited by the amount of work per machine (space accounts for only 2% of manufacturing cost) and tesla's cathode production which is the most expensive part of the battery will most likely be outsource.

Author SirRacha ( ago)
@ColdFusion was just wondering, but do you invest in stocks of the companies you do research on?

Im so astonished that people are still so bent on being on the grid when they could create their own power station at their homes and never pay for power again

Author Treasure Hunter ( ago)
I wonder how new breakthroughs in battery technology like John Goodenough's solid state batteries may threaten Tesla's investment in their gigafactory, their business plans and investment with the lithium ion battery they currently plan to produce.

Author Dᴏᴡʟᴘʜɪɴ ( ago)
Referring to the final statement in the video: Tesla is NOT a great shift in the status quo. It's the same room with a nicer wallpaper.
Where would Tesla be without the USA's military-capitalist-imperialist exploitation of Afghanistan's vast lithium resources? That's the other side of the equation that adds nothing to a better world but buys it with causing havoc.
1) Torture world
2) Save world
3) PRofit ("another capitalist success story")
Thorium reactor tech doesn't seem to be aimed at in the USA. As always it's about money and those new techs come with an agenda. (And since the channel's name is ColdFusion ... Well those technologies are not even allowed (because the status quo is still intact), because money and power. You can only act in that setting as long as you stick to its self-preserving rules.)
Wondering though why short-time energy storage (half a day) isn't done with supercapacitors, which are very environmentally friendly. Probably same answer: Money. Their tiny energy leakage is still a few percent profit loss, and the 'good' dominates as long as the better (its worst enemy) isn't entering the stage.
Technological progress is no cause for celebration as long as humankind isn't progressing. It leads to technocracy, the domain of the overbearing mind, and that kills the spirit.
The 'progress' we see is bought with giving bullshit a stronger foothold. It is - somewhat ironically - short-sighted.

Does this make Edison a good guy and Tesla a bad guy...

Author kebman ( ago)
Oh wow, batteries! Tesla invented them, right? Nope. Tesla didn't even invent huge batteries, but I can see they're getting all the credit anyway. Great plug for Tesla, I guess. Pun intended. To me this proves only one thing: That people will go for who they know over any other brand, even though it might not be the best. The only thing that really counts is being best _in their mind_. Cheers everyone!

What is this ? The Fairytale Channel ?
Does anyone know how much Energy is wasted by producing just a single one of those Tesla CAR Batterys ?
Batterys are not a solution, if the Oil runns out ( and it will ) we are all fucked up back to the Stone Age,
the whole Transportation System will collapse...Worldwide...

what is the rate of input-output loss? batteries don't provide as much energy as they absorb

Author hopeless128 ( ago)
with all this concentrated power and the history of lithium ion ... how safe are these batteries ?

Author Nuclear Armament ( ago)
People are ignorant about nuclear technology. If reactors used weapons grade fissile material, such the reactors used aboard Ohio-class nuclear submarines (their uranium fuel is at least 98.75% pure U-235, by mass), we would not have to worry about any fucking nuclear waste--especially if the fuel uranium was more than 99.9999% pure U-235! Wake up, people! You know nothing about the most basic, common sense things! I don't see the PWRs aboard the nuclear submarines blowing up in a nuclear detonation, or even a steam explosion (even if it did, U-235 which is 98.75% pure by mass isn't going to do shit to the environment, assuming it breached the reactor containment vessel)! They have only been operating without any refueling necessary even after more than thirty years of nonstop power output; liberals are fucking stupid! Even 1940s/1950s first-generation and second-generation PWR/LWR technology works just fine and is perfectly safe for the environment, and can produce little to no waste whatsoever; blame the regulatory agencies and the environmental fundamentalists--LIBERALS--that stifle nuclear advancement in the civilian sector including outside of anything but the military industrial complex and the black budget!

Author Andrei S ( ago)
instead of trashing mountains of money on current-gen batteries that may be so obsolete they won't even be worth recycling after a real breakthrough, why didn't Tesla put all that money in R&D-ing new battery technology? It seems to me that finding new ways to store energy, that could bring us EV with thousands of miles on one charge or making all this in the video in a much smaller and cost-efficient way should be the priority, not rushing to fix hour long blackouts.

1. electric cars are not feasible,
2. they are too slow,
3. the batteries may catch fire,
4. fail in cold climates,
5. it is really not an absolutely clean car, because it pollutes the air too much (albeit less than gas cars) to recharge the batteries by coal power plants,
6. electric cars are funny looking and gimmicky,
7. it is best to stick with traditional hybrid cars,
8. the technology is not there for 20 years and
9. they are trying to hoax you to pay deposits, which you will never see, while Tesla will mysteriously disappear, just like all the other concept car makers.
10. Not to mention legitimate road safety, as these toy box cars are far below the regulations.
11. what the mainstream tries to propagate, is that there will be no electric car for another 30 years.

Musk is a sneaky guy who earns money by fooling you. In next 4-6 years all these free tesla charges will be charging your cars for huge money

This could have been done 20 years ago, if there wasn't so much greed in the world. I hope that for once, the big industrials learn from this, that if the environment is destroyed, there's no money in that and that eco sustainability is the future and it should start right now. I'm thankful for people like Elon Musk, who manage to really make a positive change and are able to reach so many people. Great video, very informative!

Yea yea.. its still too big and too much space used.. "they" need too drastically simplify it and drastically reduce the size and equipment needed to harness energy from the sun.. IDGAF

One problem; where will we even get the material to produce all those batteries? Electric cars as not exatally 100 percent clean when you consider how the batteries for those cars are made.

Author Cosmo John ( ago)
Lithium maybe mainstream now. But its not the future. PERIOD. The cost of installing this type of systems is deceiving because there is a HIDDEN COST. Lithium cannot last long. It AGES fast when used daily. The cost of replacing all these batteries will undo all the "cost savings". This applies to everything using lithium. This is not told clearly to the electric car buyers, power walls and this. Stupidity has no cure.

Author dekutree64 ( ago)
It's great that Tesla is getting a head start on this, but lithium ion really isn't ideal for grid storage. Too expensive, considering its relatively short lifetime. But there are so many new battery types on the horizon, it's only a matter of time before one emerges as the winner. That will be when the super-exponential growth happens. The fate of Tesla will largely depend on whether they cling to lithium for too long, choose the wrong new chemistry, or choose the right one. IMO the most promising is Robert Murray-Smith's structured carbon batteries.
