Finally, it is now possible that Nigerians will have electricity. Tesla is coming to Nigeria with Powerwall and this could be the inflexion point where most electricity problems would disappear, at least at homes. Oyo State should offer Tesla state tax holiday for ten years so that Tesla will locate its Nigeria headquarters in Ibadan! I get it – I really want Ibadan to grow. Sure, just a dream.
According to Wikipedia, the Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery stationary energy storage product; it is intended to be used for home energy storage and stores electricity for solar self-consumption, time of use load shifting, backup power, and off-the-grid use
The list price for a new Tesla Powerwall 2.0 battery, which offers twice the storage capacity of the original Powerwall, is $6,700. Supporting hardware adds another $1,100 to the equipment costs, bringing the total to $7,800. Installation can add anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000 to the final bill, notes EnergySage.
