Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors, Space X, Paypal, and many other companies, has come up with another brilliant idea that could radically change everyday life for the average person.
Musk’s new idea could take family homes and businesses off of the power grid, with the help of a solar powered battery pack.
“We are trying to figure out what would be a cool stationary (battery) pack. Some will be like the Model S pack: something flat, 5 inches off the wall, wall mounted, with a beautiful cover, an integrated bi-directional inverter, and plug and play,” Musk said in a statement last week.
To meet the demand for the batteries, Musk is planning on building a giant battery manufacturing complex, which will be specifically used for this company and this company only.
Musk said that he expects to release more details to the public towards the end of the year, or early next year
It is being speculated that one of Tesla’s partner companies, SolarCity, will be involved in this project.
Musk is currently working on a number of bold new projects. As we reported last year, Musk announced that SpaceX is currently developing a micro-satellite network that will work to bring cheap and unrestricted internet access to the world.
He said on his twitter page this week that they are in the early stages of development on the project, and that more details will be coming in the following months. Responding to a comment about the cost of the service, Musk said that the internet service would be “unfettered certainly and at very low cost.”
