If you’re considering buying a new home in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, Tesla may not be the first name that pops into your mind. That may change in the future.
While the high-tech company known for high-end electric cars isn’t jumping into the homebuilding business, they are making moves that could have a significant effect on how homes are powered in the future.
Time.com reports that Tesla will be creating a “whole-home” lithium-ion battery pack for sale to homeowners that will allow them to store and supply energy for their homes. The design of the battery pack is already complete and is expected to go into production in roughly six months.
Initially, the most logical move would be to place thse units in homes that already have solar panels. Homeowners could then store excess energy. Solar energy company SolarCity currently sells Tesla battery packs in certain markets where they are used as a kind of emergency generator. Eventually, however, homes could go “off the electrical grid” entirely.
So should you run out and purchase a Tesla whole-home battery pack for your next home in New Jersey or Pennsylvania? It may be a little early for that. But one thing you’ll want to look for in a new home is quality construction and energy efficiency.
