Mercedes Wants to Build a 20 kWh Battery Pack to Power Your Home

Elon Musk is getting some competition from another big carmaker. It seems Mercedes is now going to try to build a battery system  to power your home too. The system is reportedly going to be 2.5kWh battery pack which is modular and expandable to 20 kWh. Considering most people use about 30 kWh per day, it seems to fall a little short of the daily usage requirements, but is still an innovative idea.
