  • Thus far, Tesla’s batteries have been used to help other companies store energy and power.
  • By providing up to 100 megawatts of energy storage to the grid, Tesla could provide greater reliability to Texas’ power grid.

“Tesla wants to sell electricity directly to customers in Texas, according to an application filed by the company this month with the Public Utility Commission there.”
