Energy Storage Wars: 3 Products Going Head to Head With Tesla's Powerwall

When Tesla 's (NASDAQ: TSLA) Powerwall was introduced in 2015 it was the first time a company had produced a well-designed energy storage system for the residential consumer. Other products existed, but they were in a pilot phase or weren't built to be the elegant solution Tesla was offering. But Tesla was also years ahead of the market, resulting in slow sales in the first three years for the product (most of Tesla's energy storage sales are the larger Powerpack).

In 2018, every major residential solar company is working on their own energy storage solution or partnering with another company. And this coincides with Tesla foregoing its lead in residential solar to Sunrun (NASDAQ: RUN) late in 2017 after shrinking its solar presence at an astounding rate.

But thanks to a trade case from two foreign-owned solar panel manufacturers that has reached the president’s desk, solar’s upward trajectory is at risk, and with it tens of thousands of American jobs. The case proposes substantial trade restrictions on foreign-made solar panels, ostensibly in order to bolster solar panel manufacturing in the U.S.
