Reduce, reuse, recycle. Call them the ‘Three R’s” of the environmentally-friendly green movement toward limiting man’s carbon footprint on earth. From solar energy to hybrid-electric cars and bikes, we’re witnessing a sort of slow transition away from fossil fuels and toward more renewable resources. Hey, even Mercedes-Benz is doing it.

That’s right, the German automative behemoth is now slated to offer their new energy storage units for homes across America, beginning in California thanks to the state’s massive solar energy market. Each of these cells can be used to store energy garnered from rooftop solar panels, wind turbines and other means of alternative energy production. They’re made up of 2.5 kWh batteries that are stacked to create units up to 20 kWh strong. This isn’t without a purpose though. In fact, with this release Mercedes-Benz will now be competing directly with Tesla’s Powerwall unit. They’ll be on sale through Vivint Solar here in the near future with prices ranging from $5,000 up to $13,000 depending on the size of the system.
