    Electricity in New England is generally more expensive on average than in CA.

      greenmountainpower.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Rate-1-Residential-Service-10.1.16-1.pdf says $0.43/day plus $0.15/kWh

      But the pilot customer said he has lots of outages out where he is in the sticks, maybe that makes it attractive.

        Seems to me that the basic rate for Green Mountain residential is less than $0.15/kWh. While I thought the lower rates for most CA POCO's was in the low $0.20/kWh. I am not sure if that is true but I doubt the powerwall has a quick payback in Vermont.

        Even as an emergency power backup I don't believe the cost of a battery is cheaper then the cost of an emergency generator for power outages.

          The big CA POCO's are around $0.20/kW and up to 2X that depending on tariff/tier/T.O.E. Smaller co-ops can be less, but $0.15/kWh ain't that common.

          Part of the deal w/mini site storage, similar to residential PV generation, is that without some intelligent way to figure/guesstimate some long term cost/kWh of non POCO means of storing power, such as LCOE analysis, talking about cost effectiveness is all just jaw jacking anyway.
