Tesla's new $3,500 10kWh Powerwall home battery lets you ditch the grid


Goethe's Faust was an inspiration for Nikola Tesla. He knew by heart the Faust. By reciting the Faust in the park in Budapest, he discovered the rotating magnetic field which is the heart of his induction motor and alternating current electricity. It is also a basis for MRI technology, therefore Tesla's name was honored with the Tesla Unit, used to measure the capacity of MRI machines.


Nikola Tesla emigrated to the US in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant. His work in the formative years of electric power development was involved in a corporate alternating current/direct current "War of Currents" as well as various patent battles.

Tesla was an absolute Genius. His work, a gift to Mankind. But you do not have to be a genius to know why the man who discovered free energy had all his patents bought up and suppressed by the greedy fearful elite who run this world?
