We have a few options on the market, they're not incredibly expensive but I wouldn't call them cheap.

Of note, the F150 Lightning is dollar for dollar the best value for a home battery. It's also a truck.

They have a ways to go before they are producing those in anywhere near enough numbers to meet demand

And price. If you want anything but a 75k+ Lariant good luck. That buys a lot of Tesla batteries with the solar tax credit.

The Lightning Lariat actually has more battery than the same price of Powerwall and is still a truck. Tax credit doesn't apply to the battery yet.

Tax credits do apply to the batteries, but only if you buy enough solar to charge them, and only if you keep them in a mode that powers them from solar and not the grid (although the latter is harder to enforce).

You will not be able to get a lightening anytime soon and when you do it wont be anywhere near what you expect it to be today. Ford did a lot of false advertising with that one.
