Since this was brought to mind (thanks tylerwatts), I did a bit more battery shopping. Just using eBay, Leaf and Tesla cells appear to be a rarity. I did find lots of Prius modules though. This one is a tested and warrantied module. 7.2v @ 6.5Ah. I would need 20 which would give me 144v and 130Ah. That converts to W=VA which is W=144x130 or 18.7Kw. 20 modules would be right at $1000 plus shipping.

There is your problem. 20 modules will give You 7.2V @130Ah or 144V @ 6.5Ah.
Not both! You'll need 400 of those modules for 144V @ 130Ah.
