Tesla Powerwall Battery Economics: Almost There via @Ramez | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Elon Musk announced Tesla’s home / business battery today. tl;dr: It’ll get enthusiastic early adopters to buy. The economics are almost there to make it cost effective for a wide market.
