Tesla gearing up for release of batteries for the home

There are 1 comment on the Gizmag story from Feb 26, 2015, titled Tesla gearing up for release of batteries for the home. In it, Gizmag reports that:

The same lithium-ion battery technology that powers Tesla's electric vehicles will be used to develop a battery for the home, according to a statement by CEO Elon Musk during a recent conference call with analysts. The batteries would be used by homes and businesses to store excess energy generated from solar panels during the day, and drawn from at night when panels sit idle.

"As the company’s first foray into selling directly to the home energy storage market, the batteries are expected to get plenty of attention just by virtue of the attached Tesla label."

Just by virtue of getting a product on the market that the individual can purchase without going to a pack manufacturer and signing a MOU for a pack "product run". It will be interesting to see what has been determined to be the "best" amount of energy storage. Will it be a 5KWh, 10, 15.... battery pack?
