With innovation and sustainability at the heart of The Agency’s Green Week, the Tesla Powerwall tops our list of energy-efficient, design-savvy technology for a mindful lifestyle. Whether cooling your Calabasas compound in the summer or getting your Beverly Hills estate off the grid entirely, the Powerwall’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes energy conservation virtually effortless.
According to Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, the problem with existing batteries, “is that they suck.” However, unlike competing products, which are bulky, unreliable, and expensive, Tesla’s Powerwall (much like the Model S) is both sleek and efficient. It mounts easily to an existing wall and is fully automated, requiring zero maintenance for busy homeowners. In addition, the battery stores solar-generated electricity, serving as a backup power source during electrical outages or natural disasters.
What’s more, this localized solution has global implications. Audacious or not, Musk has suggested that enough Powerwall and Powerpack (the industrial version of the Powerwall) technology, coupled with solar, could ultimately eliminate the need for carbon-emitting power plants the world over. Sure, that sounds like a tall order, but then again, so was building a high-end electric sports car.
At $3,500 per unit, the Tesla Powerwall is an affordable, cutting-edge technology that offers homeowners energy efficiency and savings, while helping them reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment.
