Six weeks ago, Elon Musk rocked the world of renewable energy by announcing the Powerwall. Designed for use by homes and businesses, this giant battery will make solar power more efficient by capturing and storing solar energy produced during the day, and releasing it for use at night. While certainly a revolution in terms of storage, critics pointed out that the power output of 2.2 Kilowatts was impractically now. Now, Tesla might have just blown those concerns away.

At a recent press conference, Elon Musk disclosed that Powerwall energy output would now double to 5 Kilowatts, enough to meet most household energy demands.Christian Broda¬†agrees that this is great news – if you’ve already ordered one. During its first week of sales, the Powerwall sold 38,000 units – equivalent to its entire production run into the middle of 2016. By then, it’s anyone’s guess as to much more powerful the Powerwall will have have become.
