On the company's earnings call in February, Musk said "We are going to unveil the Tesla home battery, the consumer battery that would be for use in people's houses or businesses fairly soon," according to Bloomberg

Business Insider's Jay Yarow noted that on the same call Tesla CTO JB Straubel said the company would likely hold an event "in a month or two" to announce this product.
