How would you power your home of the future?
Rafa v
I mean some of the inside tech is really cool, the solar power is cool, definitely something of the future. But, its a prefab home made out of... wood and plywood? hardly futuristic. I mean readymade homes have been a thing for literally decades. This is just a regular box made out of wood with regular, energy heavy AC and a couple solar panels

I need a car lift because I am the type that like doing it myself.....cost is the main object of my crazy.

What is the name of this solar panels company

Do you have a link for the solar array provider?
Gary Pintado
Does anyone know what app they are using to see the electrical consumption? Looking for something that can help me manage my power intake, and control my smart devices like hue lights and thermostat.

How do you protect your solar cells from larger than normal hail and high winds as well as lightning strikes?

Why not Tesla's Solar roof?
General Ledger
What brand/model are the solar panels? We have a big carport that needs a new roof... would be a nice addition!

"Monitoring" energy doesnt necessarily cut energy

Wood walls btw

Correction. You built a home of the future for wealthy people. Lol nothing wrong with that but I wish more techies would put into context the social economic realities associated with the tech evolution and more specifically in regards to future planning. Most people in the world still don't have a cell phone and most people in the US can't afford a 1000 dollar emergency. Meaning that the tech we are showing right here is really for a select few people in the world and the US

I really like the idea of the solar powered homes.. We need that especially with the huge bad impact our actions have made on our environment...

Grade A marketing there with that *FORD TRUCK* conveniently placed in front. Kinda downgrades everything you were talking about being all energy efficient and "of the future" 😂.

For all of you folks who just can't get enough of that gorgeous F-150, I urge you to do a bit of research about the level of technology and fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Most of the comments thus far are uninformed and highly subjective.

Why Tesla is building city-sized batteries The future of renewable energy is making 3 weeks ago   06:15

Share
We talked to the co-founder of Tesla, JB Straubel, about why giant batteries are crucial to the future of power grids everywhere. Batteries are becoming more useful at powering bigger things like bikes, cars, and soon, entire cities. We explore some of the zanier forms of energy storage already in use around the country.
