Tesla’s energy products will soon only be sold as a package.
Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter that the company’s solar products will only be available in combination with the company’s Powerwall battery.
“Solar power will feed exclusively to Powerwall,” Musk tweeted. “Powerwall will interface only between utility meter & house main breaker panel, enabling super simple install & seamless whole house backup during utility dropouts.”
Musk also announced an upcoming software update that will be a big improvement. “Depending on production date, power increase power may be >50% at 30C ambient temp,” Musk tweeted.
The changes come after Tesla frustrated customers in recent weeks by significantly increasing the price of their orders by as much s $30,000.
