(Christian Science Monitor) – Elon Musk wants you to buy a battery, whether you put it in a Tesla or not.

This past Friday, the Tesla CEO unveiled a series of standalone Powerwall batteries, an energy-storage solution that he says is not only the future of the company, but of energy consumption.

Expanding its business beyond luxury electric cars, Tesla is launching Tesla Energy and Powerwall batteries, with which it plans to power the world’s homes and businesses with renewable energy.

“We’ve obviously been working on building a world-class battery, a super efficient and affordable way to store energy,” Khobi Brooklyn, a Tesla spokeswoman, told the New York Times. “It’s just that we’ve been putting that battery in cars most of the time.”
