Price has been announced via Twitter: $250/kWh at the pack level for systems over 100MWh.
Thanks to those who commented.
I hope you're right, Tesla is way more ambitious than people give them credit for. As long as power packs don't start exploding, things should be good.
@Yogi: I didn't note the voltage, presumably line voltage at the location of the installation. Why do you care?
Energy at a specified (but not explicit) voltage?
@Yogi Nope. Tesla appears to be pricing on energy capacity rather than peak wattage. Which makes sense (to me at least, not being a large power company).
Do you mean $250/kW (per kilowatt)? Not /kWh (per kilowatt-hour).
Stiff forgive amazing breakfast slave ok productive.
Good Job Boy!!! Keep it up!!! GOD BLESS !!!
Pennies u can build your own easy
Full congratulations Elon Musk💛TΞSLㅂ Team XㅇXㅇ ❤
a whole crap of shit, bullshit and lies all roll in one.....Elon Musk is a con man ready to empty your wallet in a nano second now that is tesla energy taking you back to stone age at the speed of light........wozzz
it takes more than running a train straight in to make it environmental
i hope they're better batterys than in my phone i know there bigger
Don't forget the island of American Samoa Ta'u is running on battery packs and solar panels as well.
Do u have any idea how much area tesla is going to occupy by those cells and restrict those grasses to have sun light. It will not be surprising when tesla announces to cut trees to establish panels in near future and destroy ecosystem.
hi!!! this technology is amazing. You should include in your video the impact on the enviroment. I am locatede in SouthAmerica and here we use electricity made by dams which cause a huge damage to the enviroment with loss of land and many species even the ones in the water. Thanks very instructed.
To make the battey for one car (ONE CAR) put out as much co2 as a v8 car running for 5 years. GET IT PEOPLE. Its a scam.
The good thing is this is fairly new technology with a person in charge who believes in making things better. It's going to be great in 10 or 20 years.
What's the EROES for the 21700 li-ion battery (or is it 2170?).
Consider 1/7th the energy ever generated from a solar panel has to go back into the manufacture of its replacement (some 20 years or so in the future), that some amount of that must be put into recycling, and a lot has to go toward the battery (or other storage) manufacture.
Consider also that the more intermittent, the more panels and more storage needed, meaning less of a positive EROEI.
Therefore, for solar, we need the longest powerlines possible, the least amount of energy in, for both collection and storage and the most efficient way to recycle.
I believe it's impossible to get an overall positive EROEI for such systems during the winter unless lots of hydropower and wind is also incorporated.
of all the fact's to choose from about Hawaii you go with lilo and stitch.?.?.the sad thing is that it was probably a good call.....
South Australia are signing the deal woo hoo
Why a grid? Doesn't the sun shine on my house too? We need something to make us free from the utilities companies!
Maggic free??? It only free if it doesn't work.
Ahh... so THIS is why the automakers (and so many others) are all freaking out about Tesla and doing everything they can via PR to destroy them. It is because NOW Tesla is disrupting the Energy market.. and we can't have that.
I doubt they will succeed.. the best they will accomplish is to slow their growth. And even that I would be surprised at.
Any of you know about nickle iron batteries. I notice that Musk and the rest of the major players don't want the world to look at nickle iron batteries. The nickle iron batteries can last more than a century and require little maintenance. Why does nobody work with these? Do a search on nickle iron batteries and discover the answers.
too much Government regulation(politics) and not enough engineering in the decision making, lots of status quo people
Hom much is electrifity there on Kauai island? Free?
why not free? the sun is free, right? what happens after solar panels are paid off? solar panels doesn't need any maintenance other that cleaning the glass... Bottom line, my question was, how much electricity cost over there? Is it cheaper or more expensive then on the main land?
mkmorfius why would it be free? they still need to pay for maintenance and initial cost.
the idea of saving solar energy in batteries isnt anything new. just that the powergrid hadnt done it yet. glad its happening but tesla didnt come up with it. just the company that got hired to build it
china makes more lithium ion batteries now
One day we won't need to store energy. One step at a time.
In theory, compressed air or gravity storage on rails should be cheaper than batteries for storage. Why hasn't Tesla pushed these other technologies?
Great idea! I just hope that their power systems are more reliable than their cars! 😬
Finally a power generating system the oil companies have not been able to buy out and take off the market. The uses for this system around the globe are endless especially if Tesla fulfils its promise to recycle old batteries.
Well this technology is dated(((OLD- Antique)))- (= NEXT= SUPER ULTRA CAPACITORS (((= Mass transportation buses are already using this technology. SUPPRESSED IN AMERICA??? Japan has been using this innovative technology since 2001. Elon Musk must have heard so why Tesla broke ground on the Gigafactory in June 2014 outside Sparks, Nevada.
These Ultra Capacitors are able to charge in seconds what took hours. They have designed the product at 1 millimeter thin and molded into body panels on cars or whatever the need!! They encapsulate with carbon fiber and can mold it into any desired configuration((=.. Who needs space or walls full of batteries??? The best part is they are environmentally super Friendly

Why not make car batteries scalable? Add more if you don't need the extra baggage or passenger space and you're going very long distances? And why not use car batteries in such a way that you can plug in appliances from your home? For camping or going on the road? This could be very useful to those in trailers and mobile homes.

Nikola Tesla would be proud. Well done.
Absurd rich people build $1Billion "House" (google it ) to show of ... meanwhile Elon Musk build a factory to save the world. God bless him! He was never driven by profit , its just pure passion ....

Your channel was hacked?
Just to tell you a secret . . . on the other side of the world, China is generating 100 GWh from photovoltaic cells. That is 2,000 times larger!
With oil companies in the White House who knows what dirty tricks those snakes got up their sleeves.
Batteries sound well and good but they're not the solution, we need a reactor. In an analogy switching hydro plants for batteries is the same if you were to change your hybrid car for an eletric one.
Problem is... batteries die.
+Jonatas BINGO ! Lithium in the chain of energy security...like...people & their families relying on it ? How stupid.
Cult of personality always leads to intellectual flaws...maybe future investment bubbles will be "fame based".
His lithium battery factory is good idea, 'cause it's an added value on hydrocarbons, the grid being "carbon fueled".
Big energy storage is only good idea if batteries don't consume fast (= lithium out !). Zinc-Bromine does the job !!!
What is the Intro song called?
Return of the Jaded - Whats it Gonna Take
Funny how Tesla does all of this in a few years and governments can't keep up because big oil companies restrain them.
Don't worry Hawaii my investment will help solve your power needs Carnegie clean energy has the worlds only operating wave farm in about a few months they will be announcing their ceto 6 commercial product
Name of the song played at the beginning????
sounds like a chillout mix of lange's _follow me_ at the end. nice vid
the tesla deal in australia didn't work out, they hired some other company to do the job
Well that came across more as an advert for Tesla than a scientific appraisal.
Great information about Tesla Energy! We want PowerWalls and Powerpacks
Why make most of the worlds energy dependent of 1 companie's power source, somebody can just pull the plug I'm still for independent energy, it's my own and nobody can take it away from me
I am honestly surprised that they can provide such performance at reasonable cost. I would have imagined that transforming the high voltages from the power grid into what batteries can sustain would ruin the efficiency of the systems. But from an environmetal standpoind I think there are better solutions than lithium ion out there (like flow batteries which do not degrade over time). Especially mid term when those cells degrade more and more and recycling is still not where it needs to be to create a closed loop product life cycle.
train exciting long manner Latin pop square submit walking.
I love how the Cali Public Utilities Commission guy's first response to new tech is "how can we regulate it?" Will they ever learn, or will they just keep trying to regulate their way out of over regulation? There's a saying, "the best thing about California is the weather, because the government doesn't control it." Lol
But go ahead Cali, keep getting rid of the most energy dense power system known to man and turn to non renewable batteries...
your "The True Story of Nikola Tesla [Pt.1]" has been blocked for copyright. when will a new re-edited version be out?
3:03 - Narrator said 1,500 homes. Screen says 15,000 🙄
so what about the free energy that TESLA actually developed
Why are the battery boxes so small. Whats wrong with just having one massive battery!
Can you please explain how a 150 Gw complex is replacing a 18,000 Gw nuclear plant?
Why do we need batteries when we have a perfectly viable source of free energy right above our heads?
I wonder what the state of play with battery tech will be once the batteries being fitted NOW do reach their replacement due date? Considering Musk recently effectively doubled the effectiveness 0f Lithium Ion batteries, in 8 years when the due date hits - who knows what will be possible. They may be replaced by something really groovy.
damn elon musk. i thought saying this like that was only on tv
It seems the cost per KW per home would have a payback over 3 centuries.. Solar cells aren't very efficient.. neither is wind power.. Why not use Nuclear power?

The lifetime of a Lithium Polymer battery is around 100 cycles and up to 500 if it's insane. As in a few hundred dollars for a few Amp Hours. The lithium drilling is also a very hazardous operation, as Lithium is an extremely reactive substance and is rare. Not only that, but a relatively small lithium battery, for example, a 1s with about 1000 mAH, is what exploded in people's pockets with the Note 7. That's a serious problem when you have those batteries the size of a shack. If one of those has a problem and the lithium reacts, it would be like a small bomb, and in turn could create a chain reaction.
You should do something on The Venus Project.

I have been watching your videos from 3 years, and the content that I found in this channel is very unique and very informative.
Hope this technology will become less expensive and spreads worldwide.
Coldfusion videos are a bliss to watch. They are motivational alongside being able to quench my thirst of knowledge. This channel inspires me to not settle down and do something great! Thank you for giving me this incessant want. Plus the music is always awesome. Great going!
tesla and musk is changing the electricity industry dramatically
nice video. your voice , content and editing make everyone watch your video 👍👍 ☺
Why not just store heat in saltwater? That's way better for the environment and is rather efficient
0.012 cents pKh is a RIP OFF
What is the most impressive to me is the fact that even with "Big Oil" throwing as much disinformation out there as humanly possible and, with as much unlimited money they have to buy off senators and congressmen, STILL, Tesla was able to say: *""Fuck You, We're doing this a better way!!""*
the way these idiots talk about electric batteries is sickening, as if it was anything really new
its 2017 you fucking pieces of human garbage, tell it like it is or drown in your fucking fat oil you corporate dicksuckers
Hi Coldfusion can you tell me which software you are using for generatng a voice "You are watching Coldfusion TV" in this video?
Watched and Thanks for sharing your wonderful videos
Elon Musk's name will be remembered for a quite a while
great green power
Great stories mun :)
Any flatearthers watching?
Awesome stuff as usual. Big fan of your channel. Can you post a video on Block Chain Technology ! Thanks
my concern is what is the life cycle of these batteries ?
Tesla energy and Elon Musk are frauds! Tesla, Nikola Tesla that is, already had technology to provide everyone on earth with FREE ENERGY over 100 years ago! No batteries! No wires! Just electricity basically out of the air. He was squashed by the oil tycoons because Tesla wanted to give this technology away for free! Upon Nikola Tesla's death the US government raided his home for all his research! These 2 lying frauds were obviously the two that the technology was given to.
Most bullshit video I've ever seen on YouTube!
This will only work if we switch all of our appliances to DC current this will save a lot of power converting from DC to AC a lot of power loss when doing this.
Fuck Tesla, I like my noisy, fun, horsepower rich AMG.
musk is a total fraud with a cult following. Invented nothing new, but good at pretending to be intelligent and taking money off idiots.
anyone know whats the name of the song at the start of the video
Your videos are amazing but could we get more "How big is..." Series videos?
Keep an eye out for Solid State batteries ! 3 to 10 times more power !
When are we going to get all this fantastic technology from youtube lol
By the time we can sustain ourself from "green" energy we're already dead.
that battery from LG.. and that battery has to be replace every 5~7 year.. better then nothing but.. the point is price..
If this is true, It is amazing
i wait for the dyson sphere
i really hope that within my life time we can achieve a world running souly on renewable energy
Thank you Hawaii for your Stewardship of the beautiful natural environment of the Islands thank you for the love I love you to:), Thank you Australia for the love you sent to me, the mini-boomerang Art piece is beautiful and I really like the sideways Kangaroo, Sweet!!, Thank you Elon for all the money you have spent on my behalf in some of, if not the best health care in the World, truly a miracle of Science, I hope I can in some way give back to you some of what you have given to me and my family, (I 'll work for beer and pizza, no, seriously!:), peace and love, Doug.
as a roofer ... I'm excited
And yet more absolute horse shit from that con artist Musk?
We are supposed to believe this fukin bollox?
How does he plan on distributing the energy from the stationary energy storages, which are located in the middle of nowhere, to cities? The farther you store the energy, the longer the wire to the homes to make use of that energy. Energy is lost over the course of traveling through a wire. I just don't get the practicality of this project.
