Tesla’s taking to the streets to demonstrate their clean technology. A Model X is pulling around a tiny house showcasing a solar power system and Powerwall, giving the curious a way to check out their renewable technology in action. Electrek shared some stunning images of Tesla’s Tiny House, which is serving as a mobile design studio in major Australian cities.
The Tesla Tiny House is incredibly eye-catching: clad in sustainable, locally-sourced chemical-free timber, the rolling design studio gives locals an up-close look at Tesla’s renewable wares. The Tiny House measuring 20x7x13 feet is outfitted with a 2 kW photovoltaic system with six panels. There’s also a Tesla Powerwall on the home’s exterior.
Naturally, the Tiny House is entirely powered by renewable energy, and people can step inside to use a configurator to design a solar system with storage for their own homes. A tour with staff provides detailed information; Electrek quoted the company as saying: “The tour is designed to provide a one-on-one educational experience on how to integrate Powerwall and solar to seamlessly power an entire home 24/7, allowing Australian consumers to gain control and understanding of their power use.”
According to Electrek, Australia is a key market for Tesla’s products: 1.5 million households in the country have solar for the highest per capita penetration of rooftop solar power in the world.
Tesla plans to take their tiny house to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane throughout August, September, and early October. But, the company says on their site that anyone in Australia can request a stop. They “want to bring the Tesla Tiny House to you, so you can fully experience what it means to be self-powered.”
