I had to make my own plan, hence why I've got 2 generators and the inverter, luckily have the generators as the battery stopped working

That's not bad.
Rubicon Renewables: Lots of companies are buying Tesla Power Walls for their staff to keep them going in load sheddingSorry, which companies? How many employees?
Rubicon Renewables: Lots of companies are buying Tesla Power Walls for their staff to keep them going in load shedding
Us: What Companies exactly?
Rubicon Renewables: You know ... companies ...
Us: Yes, but which ones?
Rubicon Renewables: Lots of them
Rubicon Renewables: Look, we can't give you names, because if we did then you might ask that company if they installed Tesla Power Walls for their staff, and then they would say that no they did not and then we would have to admit we were lying or greatly overexagerating to try pull the wool over peoples eyes and stir up some sales.
Us: So ... what ... one guy who runs his own business and works from home bought a Tesla Power Wall from your guys for his house and paid for it through the business?
Rubicon Renewables: Basically yes .... companies
But what about the Cell towers (Wi-Fi) and the fibre nodes also going down during loadshedding?
A powerwall is cool and all, but for work-from-home, it's useless when you have the lekker "Connected - No Internet Access" message on your Internet & Network Settings.
Lucky bugger. In our area, everything dies. The call center peeps working from home, are stuffed when the power goes down.
But our labour laws should be relaxed and organized labour banned, just to make sure there's nothing hindering further exploitation.Just great.
A close relative's employer do not even allow them to charge their phones at the office, even though this is their main point of contact with prospective clients, and they have to take their own printers to the office to print out contracts.
Guess what else they have to supply themselves for the bathrooms?
Might just be a tax thing companies and employees take advantage of. A power wall will be much more affordable if you can structure it in a way to pay with pretax money! "No bonus - but here is a powerwall type thing."
As much as everyone is going on about executives, I'm sure it's also more focused on people who support business critical systems.Yea I do believe there is a tax incentive for companies supporting employees working from home.
And 150k is hardly a 13th cheque to some people, so in the bigger picture probably not even a major operational expense.
