It looks like Tesla's new Powerwall battery storage for homes option is already off to a phenomenal start. According to released figures from Tesla, they already received 38,000 total reservations for Powerwall and 2,500 reservations for Powerpack (the Powerpack is the commercial version of the Powerwall). For folks who are good at math (or decide to crack out the calculator), that amounts to $179 million worth of Powerwall reservations and $625 million worth of Powerpack reservations (based upon their retail price). Mashing those two numbers together yields a tad over $800 Million in sales.
