A couple of Tesla Powerwall customers have even discovered clever ways to maximize their investment.
For example, the Powerwall helped one customer generate passive income. The customer had a Tesla solar roof and Powerwall installed, which helped earn $350 in extra monthly income.
Another customer in Nevada, who independently mines Bitcoin, was able to mine blocks from the comfort of his home using Tesla's solar panels and Powerwall.
Why It's Important: The Powerwall comes in handy during emergencies, ensuring that users don't suffer through a blackout. In the event of an outage, Powerwall automatically detects the disruption and uses the stored solar energy to keep appliances running uninterrupted, even for several days.
