Get Your Home Off the Grid with This New Battery

Published

on

For many of us, living off the grid is just a dream…

It doesn’t seem like it’s something we could every actually accomplish.

After all, we’ve become so used to the conveniences of modern day life… all our gadgets and gizmos that help us get through the day. What would we do without them?

But there’s new technology out there all the time, and living off the grid might be easier than you think.

Here is a new battery that could help you do just that.

Read about it below.

Tesla is working on a battery that can power your home and even help large-scale utilities store energy more efficiently, according to company chief executive Elon Musk.

On an investor call Wednesday, Musk said the designs for a home or business battery are already complete and will likely be unveiled to the public “in the next month or two.” Production could be as little as six months away, he added.

“It’s really great. I’m really excited about it,” said Musk.

While there’s no word yet on price, Tesla’s battery and charging technology could ultimately wind up saving you money on your electric bill. Although many of today’s homes draw energy directly from the electricity grid, the spread of cheap solar panels means it’s never been easier to generate some of your own energy. Storing renewables efficiently has been a big bottleneck for consumers and for utilities alike, but if Tesla’s stationary battery takes off, it could change the way electricity is priced and traded on a market scale. (For years, it’s been many people’s dream to sell excess energy back to the grid.)

    I like the idea of a great storage battery, I have 16 lead acid 6 volt batteries. I try not to let them get down less than 80 percent. I have it set up to keep all the power to myself sending some back to the grid allows me to have chance of being hacked.

    4×8′ solar panels and a wind turbine power the water pump on the ranch.
    Static parts constitute the majority of maintenance scheduling. Lubrication to the gears maximum 6 months.
    New Mexico is rich in wind and solar.

    Guinea fowl, chickens, “Sheila” our Australian heeler help to maintain pests to rodents.
    Llama for protein, along with wool and other byproducts.

    Amend the soil for herbs for medicine and cooking : composting with coffee grounds to roughage waste. Purchasing much less packaged foods.
