Tesla Wants To Be Your Home Battery Company

Volkswagen is conducting an experiment in Hamburg, Germany. It will donate 100 batteries from its eGolf cars to create a battery storage facility for the local utility company. A battery that is no longer serviceable for automotive use still retains 70% of its energy storage capacity. The VW plan will allow the electric company to store excess power during off peak times and draw on that stored energy during periods of peak demand. That allows the utility to generate electricity more efficiently, saving everyone money.
