Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the Tesla Powerwall, a new technology said to be able to power an entire house. But will it be able to connect the developing and remote parts of the world to electricity? Musk says it will.

According to government figures, at least one-third of India does not have access to electricity, which makes the current heatwave even more difficult to handle for the country’s most vulnerable. More than 1,110 have died from the heat and some hospitals were overwhelmed, according to the most recent figures as of publishing.

CCTV America’s Mark Niu captured this part of the announcement where Musk addressed how the new technology could help bring electricity to those off the grid.

    Musk didn’t found or co-found Tesla. Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning founded Tesla in 2003. Musk was an early investor and became chairman in 2004 (and later CEO).
