Now that Tesla has acquired SolarCity, the company that doesn't "advertise" still has a big job ahead of it convincing consumers of the exponential benefits of combining the products.
Rooftop Solar Panels
In a recent Tesla "Customer Story", Australian Model S owner known as Clint, helps the viewers see the light. He drives home in his Tesla Model S and then shows off his home which boasts a Tesla Powerwall and SolarCity panels.
"Watch Model S and Powerwall owner Clint outline the benefits of combining the Tesla Powerwall with solar and integrated software aggregation for control, savings and a change towards a more sustainable future."
Australia is a key location for renewable energy awareness and solar power use. Teslarati recently reported that an Australian developer is working to create a "Tesla Town" subdivision in Melbourne that will offer homes equipped with solar panels, Tesla Powerwalls, and electric car chargers.
Basically the panels capture and transfer the sun's energy to the PowerWall battery. The stored energy can be used when the sun isn't shining, and when the consumers' energy rates peak. Add to this an electric car and the package is complete . . . at least for now.
