The Powerwall will work in a similar way to the battery in the Model S car within its rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

If your house is already decked out with solar panels, the Powerwall with enable you to store the excess energy for use at a later time. This effectively means you can take your home completely off grid. You can also utilise stored power at night.

The standard Tesla model is the 7kWh Powerwall but they will also be selling a beefier 10kWh Powerwall as well.  The Powerpack however groups powerful 100kWh battery blocks for anywhere from 500kWh to upwards of 10MWh.
