Is there a corporation that publicises sustainable lifestyle concepts better than Tesla? We think not.
This titan of the clean energy industry receives a gold medal for its clever use of PR and marketing to campaign for a sustainable future. Not only is the company building the world’s largest battery system in South Australia and expanding its electric car charging network down under, it can now add a Tiny House Australian tour in the aim of educating Australians about renewable energy.
The Tiny House makes clean energy more accessible to everyday Australians. Powered by 100% renewable energy via a 2 kW solar system and the Powerwall solar battery unit, visitors can inspect the tiny home for themselves and direct all questions about solar home systems to Tesla staff. The Tiny House also “contains a mobile design studio and configurator which can calculate how your home can generate clean energy from the sun” which can all be monitored and controlled by the Tesla app. To top it off, the Tesla Tiny House will be towed by its revolutionary electric vehicle, the Model X.
“The tour is designed to provide a one-on-one educational experience on how to integrate Powerwall and solar to seamlessly power an entire home 24/7, allowing Australian consumers to gain control and understanding of their power use,” its company press release states.
