    Elon Musk ‏@elonmusk 1m1 minute ago Major new Tesla product line -- not a car -- will be unveiled at our Hawthorne Design Studio on Thurs 8pm, April 30

    My guess is a home battery system based on Tesla Tech.

    or hey, maybe it's a conversion kit for my John Deere lawn mower :)

    Yea, this was pretty interesting, I just read that tweet too. New product lines from an automobile manufacturer that isn't an automobile. Meh, it's also a month from now, so plenty of time to speculate. 500 page thread coming soon...

    I think you're probably right. They've been teasing a home storage solution for a while now, so this is most likely the official announcement.

    I might be interested, depending on the details - I have a grid tied micro-inverter solar panel set on the garage and currently no storage (didn't like the lead acid options that are on the market.)

    I'm hoping Tesla mgmt gives some estimate on Total Addressable Market and revenue targets (at some point)

    For now, let's just have the darn "Shorts" shake in their boots wondering how big this new revenue stream can be...
    Translation: Maybe you should cover soon...

    Home battery storage that allows fast DC (Supercharger speed) charging at home.

    I hope you're right. That's a great idea.

    How will this be different than the currently offered battery system thru Solar City and Tesla?

    Solar City was doing a pilot program with residential storage (only 450ish units). Maybe now it is moving out of the pilot stage.

    Me too... I'm in the process of getting quotes for my roof - the SolarCity model would be of interest to me!
