A small island community has found the means to power almost all their daily energy needs from renewables: Tesla Batteries.
The island of Kauai, in the Hawaiian archipelago, has gone from 6% to 46% in under ten years through strategically placed batteries.
The island houses a battery farm to help store up all the solar energy that the island produces and stores it like never before.
Kauai wants to be 70% renewable by 2030.
