Good for Home Depot.
Taiwan’s Minister of Science and Technology Chen Liang-gee told reporters at his office in Taipei today (via Nikkei):
Tesla is using its lithium ion battery technology to help Australia and California to implement smart grid and grid storage, and we can learn from them in the future. We will try to check out whether there is a suitable solution…we will get in touch with them.

Looks like PowerPacks are becoming popular around the world. I believe the first was in Hawaii and then LA. Better than fossil fuel backups.
This is a GE story, not a Tesla story really. 50 stores to get GE solar, with 6 store to trial batteries from Tesla.
Not sure how to take the fact that Tesla isn't supplying the batteries for Australia. They are buying them from Samsung.
Seems a bit odd to build a big battery factory and then NOT use your own batteries on a high profile order. Is there some problem preventing Tesla or Panasonic from producing energy storage products? Hmmmmmm
Tesla's real contribution to the power packs is the system packaging and the software. The batteries are a commodity that they can source based on price and availability. Apparently, supply out of the Gigafactory is being diverted to the Model 3.
@McLary: what do you mean, who is buying from Samsung, South Australia or Tesla for the 100 MW project?
Tesla buys batteries for cars from Panasonic and for energy storage those batteries are often bought from Samsung.
Modern cars have dozens of thousands of parts and most of them are bought from third party suppliers. The supply chain is fairly complicated.
Tesla is one of the most vertically integrated company.
fake mcclary seems upset
Some major stores in the united states are using the tesla energy and GE solar battery storage. Home Depot store is one of the biggest home improvement stores in the united states is now utilizing the tesla energy and GE solar battery storage. Significant people in the united states are visiting the home depot to buy their home improvements and participating in the home depot survey at https://www.homedepotcomsurveys.com/. Home Depot survey is the official way to take the feedback from the customers and using that feedback to improve their services.
You know if you want people to click on your bait links, you should really word your comments in a way that is not blatantly obvious that its a robotic advertising statement.
Teaching the robots to act like intelligent humans Andy? I think I saw a movie once where that ended up being a really bad idea...
Someone typed that. The typer should be fired.
The robot posted it.
Seems like a lot of effort on their part for little to no reward.
Depends the person. Advertising is ineffective for me, others fall prey to it.
