The Disruption Zone – Episode 1, Rep. Thomas Massie Builds His Own Tesla Power Wall

Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) is the only member of the U.S. House of Representatives who lives totally off the grid. He uses a combination of solar, generators, composting, water collection systems and one very interesting innovation – a home made Tesla power wall – to power his home.

In this episode of The Disruption Zone, he gives us the details of his exhaustive search to find a viable Tesla battery from a wrecked car, and his step by step process to build a more efficient, off the grid power system.

For more on Massie’s battery adventure, here’s his youtube video on the subject.

The Disruption Zone is about people and ideas that break down paradigms, challenge the status quo, and innovate into new territories. As we like to say, “opportunity lives where the status quo ┬ádies.”
