Tesla announced the first tour of "Tesla Tiny House" across Australia's major cities to showcase how houses can run on 100 percent renewable energy.

Tesla has a new way to demonstrate the possibilities of its home solar products to potential customers - using a "tiny house" on wheels, which it can tow on a rolling tour with a Tesla Model X. The Tesla Tiny House made its official debut in Australia (via Electrek), where it will welcome visitors at Melbourne's Federation Square, before taking off for a cross-country Australian tour.

Tesla states that the house is a 2.2-ton structure (6m x 2.2m x 4m) built from what it claims to be "locally sourced, chemical-free, sustainable timber". It wants consumers to drive its cars and power their homes with solar tiles and a Powerwall, which also recharges the auto. According to the report, Energy is provided via a six panel-2 kW solar power generating system and a Powerwall used to store the clean solar energy generated during the day. Once setup, Tesla representatives will invite people inside to use a design studio and configurator.

The Powerwall sold by Tesla in Australia has successfully created a stir amongst some of its customers in the country. It will calculate what is required to convert any given home over to Tesla's green energy solutions.

We want to bring the Tesla Tiny House to you, so you can fully experience what it means to be self-powered. It's basically solar panels and a big battery. There will be Tesla staff on hand to answer questions, too.
