We already have a date for presentation of the new Tesla battery that promises to remove our homes from the commercial power grid.
Two months ago, Tesla announced to the world that it had developed a battery to completely remove your home from the commercial power grid, and now, Elon Musk releases date the company will present its new product non-automotive during an event on April 30.
