Yeah I think musk has a lot of push and wants to get the ball rolling ahead of the forecast predictions for energy storage. If he starts showing that it is viable then other company's and technology's will push ahead to compete in the new field of energy storage.

Interesting, but after watching PBS Nova "Search for the Super Battery" they consider the best "Energy Storage" is a high water reservoir that can be refilled from a lower reservoir, during the day using solar energy to pump water up and during the night running water down trough generators.

We did the math here in Australia on going Tesla and it wasnt viable with current tech. The cost of the batteries and solar and a life span of 10 years did not payfor itself and was more expensive than staying on the grid. But like any tech the demand should drop the cost, we will see.
