The power giant is finally selling its massive array of big-screen panels on Amazon.com, but the company has yet to officially announce the price of its system.
The panels, which are more than 10 times larger than those from Tesla and are billed as a kind of “smart home” in the form of an electronic circuit board, were unveiled at a conference in New York on Monday.
But while the panels are sold on Amazon for about $1,500 per unit, the exact price has yet not been announced.
The company’s biggest competitor, NextEra Energy, also has sold its panels on the Amazon site for about the same price.
On Wednesday, the company also announced that it is raising the price to $1.49 per watt from $1 per watt, and that customers can now order up to eight panels for $1 each.
Amazon has yet no formal announcement of a price for the other new generation of its Powerwall, which it plans to launch in 2020.
While the Powerwall is expected to cost about half as much as the company’s Solar Roof, it is cheaper than the other three big-selling solar products from Amazon.
It also comes with a bigger battery that can store more energy than the Powerpack, which is only available for a limited time.
The Powerwall has two panels and a 12-watt inverter, but Amazon has not yet made a clear decision on the pricing of its solar panel system.
The Powerwall’s battery has a battery life of four years, compared with Tesla’s 12 months.
Tesla’s battery lasts eight years.
The other major competitor to Amazon’s solar power system is NextEtron, which announced a battery system in September and sells its panels for about three times as much.
It is still unclear how much Amazon will charge for the panels, but they could sell for as much or less than $1 a watt.
“It is going to be a long time before anyone gets this product, but I do believe that this will become an essential part of your home,” said Jeff Rosenblatt, CEO of NextEta Energy.
“We’ve made tremendous strides in battery technology, and we have a tremendous amount of battery storage that will help us meet the challenges of the future.”
NextEta says that its panels are up to 12 times as efficient as Tesla’s.
But in the same conference, the panel manufacturer said that its system has “better performance” than the average solar system.
Amazon has not released pricing information for the Powergrid.
But while Amazon has announced that its Powergrid is up to three times the efficiency of Tesla’s, it has yet confirmed the price for its panel system at the time of writing.
The panel systems that the Powerpens have been selling for more than a year are more expensive than the cheaper versions of the panels that Tesla has been selling.
Amazon and NextEtar have also announced plans to build their own panels at a facility in Texas that will eventually be connected to the Powerbank.
Amazon is also planning to make its own solar power systems, but it is unclear if that will be a big part of its strategy going forward.
Amazon is still testing the solar power grid, but so far has only said that it plans “to continue building out its portfolio of distributed power systems.”
