Tesla to unveil ‘mystery’ life changing product tonight!



Tesla's expected home battery announcement could spark energy revolution. SolarCity has already installed 300 Tesla-made batteries in California homes.


 Excerpt from CBC News 

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is set to make an announcement later tonight. There's been speculation that a large-scale battery announcement is expected, but it's not clear if that will be the case.



The man behind the electric car revolution is expected to unveil a large-scale battery capable of powering an entire house, during an announcement at Tesla Motors headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif.
While the battery will likely slash power bills for consumers, some say it's also a move toward democratizing energy systems.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, teased the announcement on Twitter a month ago, saying a major new Tesla product line will be unveiled at Hawthorne Design Studio at 8 p.m. local time Thursday. "Not a car," he wrote, sparking speculation that it may be a home battery.

Musk, who moved to Canada from South Africa and who briefly studied at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania, is also chairman of SolarCity, a solar power provider.

SolarCity has already run a pilot program where it installed 300 home batteries made by Tesla in California homes. Another 130 systems were being installed in early 2015, according to the company's website.

The product will be available again in late summer, the company says, as it's working on "the next phase" of the program.

Tesla is also in the midst of building its gigafactory, which has added to the speculation that the company is unveiling a home battery. Musk says that by 2020, the factory will produce more lithium-ion batteries than all the current factories producing them today. 

A home battery attaches to a home's electrical system and collects energy gathered by solar panels when the sun is out, Michael Ramsey, a Wall Street Journal automotive reporter, told CBC's The Current. That energy can then be used when the sun is no longer out.
'This is this shift away from very large centrally operated plants towards everybody owning their own little power grid or part of a small power grid in a condo building.'-— Warren Mabee, of Queen's University
"The idea is that you purchase this system and it allows you effectively to cut the cord," he says of a consumer's ability to forgo energy from the grid. The consumer's electricity bills would be significantly reduced because they would be paying for less electricity from the grid.

This innovation could move the world toward a future where power is generated where we need it and where we use it, says Warren Mabee, director of the Queen's Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy.

"This is this shift away from very large centrally operated plants towards everybody owning their own little power grid or part of a small power grid in a condo building," Mabee says.

In this system, centralized power generation becomes more of a backup than a driver, he says.

Costs remain high

However, the current systems are still very expensive, says Ramsey. The 300 home batteries installed in California cost upward of $20,000, he says.

"It would take years and years and years to cover the utility costs," he says. "It doesn't make sense unless the costs come down."

Ramsey views businesses as having the highest possible economic advantage from this development. The battery could offer businesses a surge of electricity when they have a high demand for power and cut their bills.

Mabee compares the cost of solar panels to cellphones. Smartphones were once very expensive, but each new generation has brought the cost down, he said.

Each year, solar panels become better and cheaper. Solar panels are getting close to their grid parity moment — when the cost of generating solar power is the same or cheaper than buying energy off the grid.

Another grid parity moment may be close, says Mabee. It won't be long before the cost of a solar panel and battery system will match the cost of purchasing electricity from the grid, he estimates.
"That magic grid parity moment is coming faster and faster," he said.

Wake Up!

Channeler: sheryl pedersen

A message from Mother Mary

You are all moving into a time of rapid change and I just wanted to share a few words of encouragement so that this does not catch you off guard.

A download of light energy and light codes has been happening,accelerated around the time of your solstice. This has been affecting many of you in different ways, the most noticeable for many has been highs and lows of emotional energy. Many have been shifting rapidly between extremes with no real reason that you know of. You may cry at the slightest thing and be really upset and then quickly shift into feeling so happy you think you may burst.

This is a result of the light energy waves that pull many of you along in an emotional way, through ups and downs. For each of you this experience will be different depending on how ready your physical body is to handle this type of light energy wave.

I want to assure you that nothing is wrong with any of you. Everything is right, in fact it is perfect for this time in your evolution. Indeed from our perspective, most of you are actually ahead of schedule in your spiritual progressing that you designed for yourself.

Now for a sort of warning for so many of you. Be prepared for all that is not light to be coming to the surface and into your awareness for healing. This is a supreme wake up call happening across your planet to shake up your complacency and move you into action. It is important that you get all of the crap so to speak out of the way and get on with what you really came here to do. Your soul work is needed NOW, thus the somewhat urgent wake up call.

What will happen for many of you is that seemingly out of the blue an issue will surface. You will most likely feel this as a very strong uncomfortable feeling in reaction to something another says or does or a situation in the world. This is the wake up call, that strong uncomfortable feeling. This is a clue that there is something within you that is ready to be healed.

For those of you that work with me directly in any capacity, know that I am not fooling around at this time. You have been sent subtle clues of the healing that needs to happen and if you have been ignoring them, you will be getting a very strong and firm wake up call. This may come as a message from a being in spirit, or may be triggered by events in your life. And, if you don't hear the call the first time, be assured that it will be repeated in a louder and bigger way so that we indeed get your attention.

Some will perceive this to be a punishment of some sort or unfair in some way. That is not the intention nor has spirit any intention to cause harm to anyone. We just want you to be aware of what is happening inside of you that you are not always consciously aware of. Sometimes it is necessary for you to feel pain which is the greatest motivator for you humans to take action. You so much want to be free of pain and these wake up calls are an opportunity for you to move fully into the glory and brilliance of who you really are.

And know also that you planned these wake up calls for yourself before you came here on the planet. You knew in a general way what you were coming to do and what issues you would be dealing with . This is your life lesson and life purpose. This is part of your plan for your soul in this incarnation.

You made sure that we would assist with setting the alarm clock to go off at a certain time if you fell asleep, which many of you have done. We are just assisting with helping create the situations for the alarm clock to go off. And if you ignore it the first time it rings, there is another and another ring until you do wake up.

All of you reading this and all of you who attend the live sessions that we do in Kingston are high spiritual beings who have particular work that you came here to do and now is the time to do it. You will begin to see so much more resources to help you identify why you are here and what you are to do, again your life lesson and life purpose. We are rapidly training individuals to do this work so that you are prepared to start your mission helping the planet transition smoothly into the 5th dimension.

I am available to work with all of you at any time, all you need to do is ask and I will be there with you to guide you through this process for it may be a challenge for those of you who have experienced great pain in their lives. It is time to bring all that is not light to the surface so that it may be cleansed and released to reveal the brilliance of who you are.

We are here to support you and guide you. Some may feel the need to reach out to other people to help them in this transition and individuals are being trained and prepared to do this work with you. Just let us know that you are ready to let go of the past and live in your brilliance and we will guide you in the perfect direction.

And a reminder that this process of being woken up is done with the intention to do no harm, but with the intention to bring you to a place of peace and joy beyond your current understanding. It is just time to stop sleeping and wake up to a new world of possibility and purpose.

Blessings, Mary, your divine mother
